Boston comes to Achill via Mountainviews.ie
by Colin Murphy  24 Jan 2012
Followed the simple route in the short summary up along the south side of the ridge from Doogort. The terrain was steep but always firm and alternates between short heather, grass and boulders, some of which demand a bit of scrambling. Parts of the sharp ridge overlook plummeting cliffs, which could prove dangerous in poor conditions. Unfortunately the weather on the day deteriorated near the summit and denied us the reputedly wonderful views and we had to endure a near blizzard of sleet, which explains the spatterings of water on the accompanying shots. However we did encounter another lone walker, Doug, (on right of trig pillar in pic) who hailed from Boston and who had visited Ireland previously and enjoyed a number of hillwalks, his route facilitated he informed us by our website. So good to know mountainviews.ie is doing its bit to help the tourist industry in these troubled times! Slievemore also offered an interesting mix of cave openings, small gulleys, sheer cliffs and some spectacular scenery, despite the mist. One of the west’s finest tops.
