Blue skies and showers scudding across the shining sea.
by ciarraioch  4 Aug 2015
Our small country with its fractal coastline and hillscapes constantly throws up unexpected delights.

On the wet August holiday weekend of 2015, we parked at V49323 61565 A shown as 'slipway' on the OSI map. Followed the wonderfully scenic tarred roadway until we reached a gate with sign for 'The Paddocks' at V47289 60478 B. Passed through the gate and followed the green road, but keeping straight along the coast as opposed to turning right towards the holiday home (presumably the eponymous 'Paddocks'). When a band of rocks is reached, turn right following same towards summit.

Blue skies and showers scudding across the shining sea.

Met a resident and true gentleman on the way who advised (a) that there were no access issues and (b) that one should retrace one's steps on descending the hill - following the temptation to travel east from the summit apparently leads into shoulder-high ferns and gorse.

Had intended following the ridge up to Beenarourk and Coomakista, but this looked like a surprisingly steep scramble which we decided against given the close to gale force winds. Instead we visited the impressive Napoleonic tower at V48464 60815 C by taking the southern right hand branch on the roadway on the return leg. Don't be tempted to cut downhill and due north from same onto the roadway - this was overgrown and nasty. Instead the green road near the tower will apparently bring you onto the tarred road a few hundred metres east as indicated on the MV map.

Bring the family and be respectful to the landowners. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1335/comment/18227/
