Re Achill Head, Maurice 12
Sounds like a route worth doing! Perhaps other Mv members can be of more assistance, but I went as far as spot height 266m which is just before the dog-leg WSW out to the Head whilst on a route from Keem up to the summits of Craoghaun, and attached is a link to some photos I took looking out towards Achill Head. These give some limited idea of the topography:

Looking at the OSI map, the steepest ground is likely to be descending out from pt. 225m (F52808 05622). Bear in mind though that OSI, unlike their counterparts in the OSNI (Northern Ireland), and perhaps to avoid clutter, rely on contours and shading to indicate terrain and don't use symbols to indicate cliffs etc.
