MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Inishcoole in area Donegal Islands, Ireland
Picture: It's that rocky mass to the front and centre
 
When the tide's out, it's a lovely amble
by GoldCircle  30 Jul 2019
This small island is in a tidal estuary and is comfortably accessible with dry feet at low tide - a mere 5 minute stroll. A vast expanse of golden sand opens up at low water and the highlight of this beach is the wreck of Bád Eddie - a now badly decayed hull of a large wooden boat.

The island itself is unremarkable, having maram grasses and myriad wild flowers - and a few tracks around.

The peace is only disturbed by the occasional Aer Lingus plane on final approach to nearby Donegal Airport and the occasional yob doing donuts on the sand in souped-up cars. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/2006/comment/20592/
