Prominent Headland with alpine style ridge
Short Summary created by simon3, Sweeney  9 Feb 2023
The Sturral is a little known, but striking headland on the west coast of Donegal. To gain the summit requires walking on exposed steep terrain, with a scrambling route then back towards either Port or Glencolumbcille. The scramble has serious exposure well beyond what most hillwalkers are familiar with. The rock is loose though the route overall is short. There is also a long rock climb, from the sea, starting to the west, which requires kayak/dingy access. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/5140/comment/20735/
