Not a great walking place.
by simon3 10 Oct 2017
Visiting this island by foot, bike or car is easy but essentially the road is surrounded by private properties giving no access to the coastline

The highpoint is probably reachable but didn't look like it had particularly interesting views. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/island/2460/comment/19613/

Short trek to summit
by Fergalh 26 Sep 2022
Parked outside house A (V760 651) at and walked 200 metres north along road until I came to a gate due west of summit. Crossed gate and followed horse tracks and crossed once fence to raised unmarked summit area with the ruins of an old house just below summit area Linkback: mountainviews.ie/island/2460/comment/23667/
