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 1042th highest place in Ireland.

In the clouds.

On 28.02.2012 most of Connemara was under a thick blanket of fog and low cloud, however, Tully Mountain looked just possible. Even so I had to wait till early afternoon for clouds to lift. I parked at the foot of an old quarry (room for 1 car on a slope) about 300m past the small quay which was rather busy with all kinds of maintenance activities.

A short but steep stony track leads to a disused quarry where you will also find a large farm outbuilding, a good reference point for the descent. Proceed through a muddy section where livestock gather (a makeshift trough) and go through a metal gate, which was not locked.

There is no path to the top, just make your own way over the grassy if boggy slope. Livestock is grazing freely so expect some tracks and muddy patches where they gather. Visibility was none too great on the day so I kept to some boulders on the contour to my west, then over a false top and boggy patches to a rocky outcrop where you’ll find a large cairn obscuring the trig.

Tully Mountain still had its head in the cloud so I only got a glimpse of Ballynakill Harbour and the Bens. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/893/comment/6762/
