Isolating the definition of Isolation
In posing the question about the remotest place in the hills and mountains of Ireland I don't really have a set of criteria to go by. I think there could be two types of places identified. The first is any suggestions other MV members have about their favourite quiet spot-Pazapas already named his. Each member will have their own memory of a particular place on a particular day when all the right factors combined to make it special and remote at that time. I would be interested to hear about these places. The other type of place to identify could be literally the most remote place-where there are the least signs of human activity. An example-when we climbed Fauscom last year we climbed up along the ridge at Coumshingaun. It felt quite isolated. Then at the top we were surprised to discover that we could both see the road far away and hear the traffic on it. So not such an isolated place after all. Simon3's suggestion of Tearaght might just be the unrivalled remotest spot. But there is a lighthouse on that island...
