This is a GPS track for a route onto Inis Tuaisceart. It begins in our boat just off the island, before the dingy took us into the rocks where it literally hauled up onto a wave cut platform. There is a scramble up about 20 feet of rock to the vegetation above. There are no large shrubbery or trees on the island, so it's just a case of heading for the highpoint. Sheep on the island keep the grass and heather short, and made the abundance of dead seabirds easy to spot. (most likely victims of a seagull feast). The ground is actually boggy and wet in places, but not a problem to negotiate.
There are some ruins of old buildings on the north and south of the island, as well as old farming lazy beds. There are fantastic views in all directions out to sea, and a clear view of the entire island also. You might contemplate the woman who lived here with her husband in the 1850's. When he died and his body bloated in their beehive hut she couldn't remove him through the small doorway. She had to dismember his body and remove it piece by piece and bury it. She was found in a distraught state some time later.
Although the eastern approach to the summit is up a steady slope, beware of the severely steep ground and cliffs that lie immediately to the west of the summit and entire western edge of the island. (This is the same for Inis na Bro)
