An isolated hidden gem...Off the coast worth the effort
by Fergalh  16 Aug 2022
Ireland's most isolated Island is 13.5 km from the coast, of Donegal. We got early ferry at 9 am, which takes around one hour. Arrived as the rain stopped fortunately and headed for a loop around the Lighthouse and Derek Hill's Hut. The loop walk will eventually lead you back to the capital. Than a few km east will lead you onto Dún Bhaloir the fort of the warrior of Celtic legend with the evil eye. Fortunately for us he was on his holidays and was not home !
The fort of Balor gives wonderful sweeping views of the cliffs from here. The round trip of the whole island is around 13.5 km, giving plenty of time for a drink at the hotel whilst waiting for the evening ferry back at 5.30 PM Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/2020/comment/23612/
