What this area lacks in altitude it makes up for in atmosphere with the backdrop of Galway Bay, the Atlantic Ocean and the eerie landscape. Gleninagh is one of the hills you can see on the other side of the bay from various parts of Galway city. The second last one before the north Clare coastline gives way to the Atlantic. The photo was taken from a little way below the summit of the westernmost high spot looking east to Gleninagh. Futher west on the descent from here down towards the coast road is the iron age fort Cathar Dhun Iorais who's ruins resemble a circular stone wall. I used the lonely planet walking guide to Ireland circular route heading east up a backroad from Fanore before heading cross country and approaching Gleninagh from the south. Gleninagh is marked by a small pale trig pillar. Once you get off the road navigation would be very tricky in mist and you always have to watch your footing on this terrain. The hike down the rocky terraces from Gleninagh and up to the spot this photo was taken wouldn't want to be done in a hurry. After Cathar Dhun Iorais you don't have to descend all the way to the coast road. There's a clear grassy walking track that heads back to Fanore.
