Notes on name: Gola is situated 2 km offshore from Magheragallon in Gweedore Bay. It has sea-cliffs which are popular with rock-climbers and is surrounded by several sea-stacks. The highest point on the island is named Knockaculleen on the 6" map. This is explained as Ir. Cnoc an Choillín, 'hill of the little wood' at logainm.ie.

Trees on Gola

It's a rarity to see trees on Irish islands.
The hill on the right is Cnoc Fola (Bloody Foreland). Linkback: mountainviews.ie/island/2008/comment/19548/

Picture: There's a welcoming painting on the wall and information board and a bench next to the eastern pier.
Can get busy in the summer.

Visited in 2014. Gola is prepared for tourists, lot's of informative signs, a tiny shop in the middle, there was even a holiday house to rent. Good views towards the mainland and all around there are islands and islets. Highest points are to the west with spectacular cliffs, the island is a bit split into northern and southern part so you have to descend to the lake in the middle before climbing to the other part. There's a beach west from the lake. Walking is easy and there are lot's of places to see.
During summer there's a ferry from the nearest pier GolaPr (B79271 26635) Linkback: mountainviews.ie/island/2008/comment/19533/
