Wonderful quiet beaches on this island
by Fergalh  29 May 2023
At the top of Iniscoo island 702158 starA there is a small stone bridge cross this for Eighter and pass the three houses and cattle at the southern end and head for the north of the island for the highpoint. This small island has three wonderful beaches. The norther end of the island has some low cliffs and the high point with fine views of Arranmore Island. The high point is marked with some small stones Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/2033/comment/23960/
