Well worth visting.

Moylemore is a very worthy Binnion. After a short crossing by boat from Cruit Island (1 August 2015) I followed a well made track up from the landing stage to the village, a small group of new and restored houses all of which are only occupied in summer. Once clear of them I continued along a now grassy track NNW for about 500 metres before leaving it and turning up left B7128123353 to pass through a couple of small stonewalled fields to gain the rocky summit area. The recognised high point of the hill is marked by a trig pillar at B7097823194 but some 100 metres further west is the large precariously perched erratic some 2 metres high at B7088223182 and mentioned in chalky's comment as a contender to be the highest point on the Island, a view that I would share. However given the close proximity of both points it is very easy to visit them. Rather than go back down by my way of ascent I continued down the undulating rocky ridge to the N end of the island past a small lough and up onto a fine rocky ledge with sheer drops down to the sea. I then walked back along the central grassy track to my start point. Views from this modest hill are extensive. The fine cone of Errigal is prominent to the E with the Bluestacks to the S and Arranmore to the SW. For anyone wishing to visit Owey Island Dan Betty Gallagher operates a summer sea taxi service from the Pier at the N end of Cruit Island. He can be contacted at 0866013893.
