Islands of Adventure 4
Many thanks to MV members mcrtchly and kernowclimber for organizing the highly successful recent Islands of adventure 4 trip. We had a curious day weather-wise whereby it rained heavy and hard whenever we crossed open sea but became glorious and sunny whenever we reached land! This made the trip to three islands taking in four summits not only possible but very enjoyable with long distance views and a chance to enjoy each island without scurrying for shelter.

The 12 hour day was timed to perfection and we even finished off with some leisurely dolphin watching on the sandy beach on Achillbeg Island. Each island - both inhabited and uninhabited - had its own charm and grace and I for one was left with many memories from the day. The sense of nostalgia was powerful amongst the ruins of uninhabited Inishark and Achillbeg. Even Inisturk, while home to many families, was eerily quiet as we climbed above the village. Do watch kernowclimber and mcrtchly's video following their link in the comment below this one. The haunting music and scenes capture the evocative feeling of the islands. Well done and thanks again.

Brougher Mountain: A quick bag.

Nothing much to add to the comments already. Drove most of the way up from the North side of the hill to within 450 metres of the trig point. Nothing to recommend to anybody who is looking to get ...

Geo's directions are spot on. At the aforementioned Coilte forest entrance there is a sign staing no unauthorized vehicles beyond this point as the gate may close at any point. However as the Lazy...
