Not a great walking place.
by simon3  10 Oct 2017
Visiting this island by foot, bike or car is easy but essentially the road is surrounded by private properties giving no access to the coastline

The highpoint is probably reachable but didn't look like it had particularly interesting views. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/2460/comment/19613/
