A Blasket Case
by kernowclimber  18 Jun 2014
The Blasket Islands can be seen clearly from Been Hill on a good day. We spied them on the horizon as the shadows lengthened and the sun slid low in the sky. The island on the left is Inishnabro, with the jagged Cathedral Rocks visible on its right side, and the island rising like a spear tip in the centre is An Tearaght.
