Mountain Common on 2.3.2012

A lovely day trip to Inishturk to ascend Mountain Common. Take the island ferry from Roonah quay (R378, west of Louisburg Co. Mayo). It is advisable to check the time table with the operator, especially when traveling off season.

There is a signposted walk called Inishturk Loop. Start on the tarmac road to the top of the village, go through the metal gate and continue on the stony track till the western edge near the cliffs. No houses around, only stunning views!

At an old stone wall make your way over the ridge, a moderate grassy slope, to the top of Mountain Common. The old signal tower (ruin) is on a rocky outcrop and a provides good marker as well as shelter from the wind.

The views to the west (the Atlantic) are quite spectacular. The photo depicts the trig, looking towards the Co. Mayo coastline, Caher island (uninhabited) in between. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1041/comment/6753/
