To the south of the island's summit lies an early Christian structure known as Teampall Bréanainn or St. Brendan's Oratory.   Inis Tuaisceart is the 1429th highest summit in Ireland.

Picture: The summit of Inishtooskert
Atlantic outpost
by wicklore  9 Sep 2012
From the summit of Inishtooskert the grass and heather slopes lead gently down to the east. The grassy slopes end abruptly, at steep and rocky cliffs and crags. We accessed the island at at a point where a 10 metre scramble up the rocks brought us to the grassy slopes.The western side of Inishtooskert is fully exposed to the Atlantic, and has cliffs and sheer slopes that reach from sea level up to the 172 metre summit. Remains of two small settlements can be seen on Inishtooskert, including some old beehive huts. However there appears to be little or no shelter on the island, so life would have been very tough in bad weather.

My photo was taken looking NE to the summit, with the fierce west-facing side of the island to the left. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1045/comment/14801/
