Short Summary created by simon3, Harry Goodman  13 Jun 2017
Unless you have independent means you can arrange the short sea crossing to Owey Island with Dan Betty Gallagher who operates a summer sea taxi service Tel. 0866013893 A. From the landing stage follow the clear track to the village and then go NNW to B7128123353 B before turning up left through a couple of small stone walled fields to gain the top marked by a trig pillar. While there, go some 100m further W to a large precariously perched boulder some 2 metres high B7088223182 C and which may lay claim to be the highest point on the Island. Extensive views can be enjoyed. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1379/comment/15623/
