Parked the car at the Skellig Heritage centre (V371 734 B immediately on the left after crossing the bridge from Portmagee) as recommended by Kevin Corcoran in his Kerry Walks book. We should know better. He likes a bit of road walking does Kevin, so cut out an hour of tarmac thudding and park at V350 738 C like everyone else. Room for 8-10 cars to park here. Hop over the style and follow the track up the signal tower remains, then bear right and it's a gentle climb up to a flat, featureless summit. Some steep sea cliffs here, but as usual it was too misty to see anything of them. The top seems to be in the middle of some old bog works. Marked by a cow the day we were there. Not one for the bovine phobic this walk... Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1010/comment/4148/
