Views As Good As You'll Get
by Aidy  3 Aug 2015
Just back from a week on Achill, and as soon as I knew that's where we were going, Slievemore and Croaghaun were of course in my thoughts. I set aside one day to do both, and set off early in the morning for Slievemore, starting from the car park at the cemetry and deserted village. I set off north up the steep, open hillside, heading for a prominent rocky outcrop. There was a bit of scrambling there, before turning east and going up the more gentle slope to the top. I was lucky with the weather, being in the sun most of the time, but with fairly dramatic clouds at times, meaning the views were out of this world. Beaches and ocean on most sides, with Croaghaun and Minaun also looking striking. The photo was taken near the top, looking down over Keel Lough and Keel Beach, to Minaun, with Clare Island beyond.
