Tully Mountain is sufficiently detached from the Twelve Bens to offer fine views of the range as a whole, as well as coastal views including Inishbofin, Inishturk, Clare Island and Achill. Also known as Letter Hill [TR]. Walks: a route for this peak is described in New Irish Walk Guides by Tony Whilde and Patrick Simms, p. 44.   Tully Mountain is the highest hill in the West Connemara area and the 1046th highest in Ireland. Tully Mountain is the most northerly summit in the West Connemara area and also the most easterly.

Picture: Tully Mountain, the sea view.
 
Sweeping down to the sea.
by simon3  7 Jul 2014
It was a day of sun and showers on which we visited Inishark. From it there is a quite different NE view of Tully Mountain, shown in relation to its neighbours.

Tully, centre midground, sweeps down to the sea from this angle. On the skyline to the right is Garraun and its outliers. Just beyond Tully is the ever dark Doughruagh. From the right is the NE flank of Diamond Hill. Perhaps most surprising is the skyline between Tully and Diamond where the stepped ridge descends (r to l) from Letterbreckaun 40.01 km away in the Maamturks.

Nearer at hand the SW coast of Inishbofin creeps in from the left of the picture. The small island between Inishbofin and Inishark rejoices in the anglicisation of Inishskinnymore. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/893/comment/17536/
