A hidden Gem in plain sight

Parked at Car park 388 649 starC and followed the Bolus Loop Walk, this is around 9m km long and is worth every step. For those who can't afford the very pricey trips to the Skelligs this is the closet you can get. Fortunately we walked this on a beautiful day and even saw whales at the bottom of the cliffs. The final ascent to the watchtower is spectacular, however nothing to the panorama at the summit. There are views of the Skelligs from nearly all of the track, it may be a small hill but it is worth the effort ! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/5132/comment/23660/
