Epic fail
by TommyV  2 Nov 2018
This island is relatively straight forward to get around. Once the ferry drops you at the pier there are arrows marking the trail that can be followed, which is along the only main road running to the other side of the island. I was hoping to climb to the highest point at Slievemore, but the hill is not grazed and covered in gorse. There is a gate at W00472 23813 E that leads down to a private house and it has private propert signs up, if somebody was feeling brave they could try to hop it and find an easier way up but trying to get up from outside the gate is awful. After a few attempts and getting a few friendly pricks to remind me of the task involved, I decided I had seen enough of the island and that it wasn't worth the hassle. Mr Gribbon, this one I will have to put down as a fail. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1381/comment/20183/
