Sauce Creek is derived from Irish sás, 'noose', a name referring to the fact that waves and currents make it very difficult to leave this cove by boat.   Faill an tSáis is the 795th highest place in Ireland. Faill an tSáis is the most northerly summit and also the most easterly in the Brandon Group area.

From its northern side you wonder how Faill an tSáis ever made it onto Mountain Views. It seems not much more than a pile of rocks littered with rabbits and their holes. It has a much better profile from the south. It's worth the trip though just to gaze down into the cavern of Sauce Creek. You really wouldn't want to do anything silly here. There's no mobile phone signal at the top, never mind the bottom. At least you'd have the secluded beach to yourself. At least there's a fence - around half of it. The top of Faill an tSáis is featureless with no cairn, although there are a few rocks to perch upon while you have your lunch and admire the view towards Brandon; if it isn't covered in mist. Masatiompan looms above you, but is further away than it appears. The shortest route here is to park at Teer Bridge Q518 138 B and follow the Dingle way along the road which is well signposted. At Q492 146 C there is a sign pointing the path towards Sauce Creek. The more scenic route is to park at Brandon Point Q527 173 D. There is a waymarked trail here up, over and around the cliffs, but it's very undulating. You can cut the corner and take a more direct route but the ground is fairly rough and boggy, with a lot of smaller peaks around to confuse you.
