It's not the mountain that challenges your resolve, but the rollercoaster ferry ride on a windy, wet day. Having settled your stomach, there's a sweet walk on a perfect green road across the island, followed by a gentle bog road taking you halfway up the hill. After that, it's a straight pull to the top and the magnificent views. Well, I assume there are magnificent views, because the cloud was down and visibility was the hand in front of your face on the day I was there. Luckily, a fence guides you up - and guards you from a straight drop to the crashing waves 450 metres below. A stiff drink at the island's only hotel should be enough to fortify you for the boat trip back to Roonagh. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/571/comment/2702/
