Updated Summary:
Achill's conical, stand-alone coastal peak with stunning vistas.
Short Summary created by simon3, markmjcampion, wicklore, scapania  4 Jan 2021
Slievemore is a v distinctive, almost conical peak in the N of Achill Island. It's a steep-sided mix of grass and rock with no major difficulties although parts of the sharp ridge overlook plummeting cliffs, which could prove dangerous in bad weather. There are potentially magnificent views of Croaghan, the Inishkea islands and Belmullet peninsula, the Nephins and all the hills south to Mweelrea.
E. Park near the trail head at F67060 08874 A [You could also begin by walking from the end of the beach at F67603 08973 B giving fine views of the hill before you asend] Despite the track being intermittent, the way up is as obvious as it is steep but it's more steady than exhausting. Once off the road, head for the base of the obvious ridge to the S of the corrie and follow the heathery, rocky ridge until, after 650m of climbing, the summit ridge is reached. The trig point is about 200m to the W.Allow around 90 mins.
Either double back or continue on to the col at F62480 07392 C before taking a lower trail back towards the start. You will pass the Deserted Village at F63190 07287 D in doing so.
Another finish which would need 2 cars would be to continue along over Cornaclea and Croaghan, finishing in the vicinity of F56103 04465 E...see track/2876 for details of this 19k route.
S. Start from around F63994 07088 F and head approx. N until you reach the ridge to the west of Slievemore. Then follow the ridge eastwards to the top. [2 hrs max]
