Coastal Hill
by sandman  13 Nov 2017
To allow for a visit to the Flaggy Shore and to facilitate parking i accessed this hill via the farm gate located at M2608712545 A. The summit is basically in direct line with the gate but in order to avoid some of the shrubbery it is best follow the gravel track and just before the cattle pen head for the summit , a tip keeping to the right and you may be lucky to find the two Australian 50cent coins glued to two rocks probably as show of love forever enjoying the view across Galway Bay. From the summmit two Martello Towers are visable, well worth a visit if you are in the area the towers and the summit. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/5086/comment/19793/
