Rum and petrol
Short Summary created by aidand,  9 Nov 2012
This peak is really a minor diversion on the walk to the nearby Sauce Creek. The creek features dramatic 300 metre high cliffs dropping into the ocean. It is possible, though not easy or very safe, to climb down to the creek. During the Second World War the creek was a great place for wreckage from sunken ships to be washed ashore. A former coastguard once regaled me with tales of barrels of rum and petrol being washed ashore here.
There is a circular waymarked route 'Suiloid a tSais' to the creek. Brandon Point is a good place to start. Allow 4 hours for the full circuit - a mixture of a fine coastal walk and some pleasant backroads. If you have less time a there and back walk along the waymarked route from Brandon Point will take about 2 hours. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/694/comment/5453/
