Scenic Walk at Tip of Iveragh
by ciarraioch  24 Oct 2011
After a wet morning in late August 2009, we parked the car at the small roadside quarry at V414 635 C. Walked out along the road by the Cill Rialaig artist's colony enjoying spectacular views across to Beara. Took the small bohereen which veers off to the right at V394 628 D. Made the short walk up to the col referred to by three5four0. We turned left at this point to take in the seaward summit with great views to the Skelligs and across Fionán's Bay. We retraced our steps to the col and followed the fence, eventually gaining the summit of Bolus mountain itself, short but steep. Nice views back onto Waterville and Iveragh. We made our way cross country from here more or less directly to the starting point. Not sure I would recommend this as there were many fences and the ground was rough. Probably better just to retrace one's steps. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/782/comment/6594/
