Summary for Kilpatrick : Offers more than climbing a small hill

Picture: View across to Kilpatrick from the W.
There is a daily boat service, weather permitting, from Ballycastle to Rathlin Island. On arrival take the road going N from Rath FP (D145 511) and at the second road to the left, way marked for the Ballyconagan Trail, go left and continue along NW to gradually climb the hill ahead and ignoring a turn off to the right for the way marked trail. At about A (D140 520) leave the road and head up SW for some 300 metres along to gain the high point of the hill and a small windfarm of three turbines no longer in use and known locally as the "Three Children of Lir ". This said it is unlikely that a walker will travel to Rathlin with the sole purpose of climbing this modest little hill and is more likely to want to sample whatever else is on offer. This can include an assortment of way marked trails or access to Northern Ireland's largest sea bird colony near the W Lighthouse and managed by the RSPB. It is also reputed that a cave on Rathlin is where Robert the Bruce sought refuge after his defeat by the English at Perth, Scotland, in 1306. Here legend tells us he concluded, after carefully watching a spider repeatedly trying to and finally reaching the roof by it's thread, that "If at first you don't succeed try, try and try again" whereupon he returned to Scotland and had his revenge at Bannockburn !! Go and enjoy a fine day out.

2 summits to choose from and a view of Islay
by rhw 5 May 2015
Half-day trip. Noticing the west summit also has a 130 contour on Openstreetmap I visited this as well. Unlike the east summit, it has a shelter cairn and a trail. Looked slightly lower but have not seen detailed/OSNI mapping to verify. I'd recommend doing both to be sure of the island HP. Views to Kintyre and (unexpected) Islay on a reasonably clear afternoon.

Picture: Cliffs at Kinramer North
short trek to alternative high point from road
by Fergalh 20 Jun 2023
The alternative to Kilpatrick's high point which is of a similar height is Kinramer North. Walk or cycle along the western road that leads towards the western tip. Stop at B (D104 513) and follow the walking trail which is well signposted, this will lead to the cairn at C (D106 522). Around 100 metres north are the very impressive cliffs. round trek from road around 3km if you do it linear. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1363/comment/23993/
