14 MountainViewers took advantage of an opportunity to visit this private island in July and walk to the summit. The owners have only just started to allow limited access. We had to remain with the guides for our walk, and although the island is big (1300 acres) we were restricted to the route shown. We didn't spot any of the resident wild wallabies, but were assured by the guide that about 30 do live on the island.

A pristine island well looked after by the current Lord Revelstoke, Alex Baring, it has deer, cattle, sheep, rabbits, black rats, and, of course, wallabies. (As well as one of Ireland's largest collection of seabirds). For €75 pp SkerriesSeaTours will bring you out and guide you around. (The island owners take a cut). Worth a visit, and Lambay will join the MountainViews lists in the next few months, so why not go early and be amongst the first to see it?

NOTE: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 1h 40m + time stopped for breaks
NOTE: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.

* Note: A GPS Height in the elevation profile is sourced from the device that recorded the track. An "SRTM" height is derived from a model of elevations for parts of the earth. More detail
