An Abandoned Island
Short Summary created by jackill,  7 Aug 2014
Inishark was abandoned in 1960. There is no ferry service so private boat hire is the only access option.
Landing is possible on the old pier with the help of a local guide as the rocks do tend to shift about in winter storms.
On the Island the track from the pier leads up through the old village and on to the Islands summit crossing boggy fields and tumbling stone walls.
The highest point is next to the trig Pillar. There are spectacular cliff views to the west of the island. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1382/comment/15626/
