Extraordinary Views of Clew Bay and beyond

If you ascend Crott it will be well worth your while to go to the eastern end of the plateau. The rim is perched on very steep ground and you will have unrestricted views to the east overlooking Westport and its hinterland. The vista is quite stunning and can be easily achieved by starting at L9494 8095 starA (limited parking) and following the Western Way right along the south of the mountain and up to the summit and then back to the eastern rim. There would be no point in launching a full frontal assault on the eastern cliff, although I did descend that way with great caution (Track 3229).
