Croaghaun

The highest mountain on Achill Island, with real mountain look and feel of metamorphic psammites and schists. Well actually this is the 664m high south-west peak of Croaghaun, I am standing on the 688m actual summit which is mapped as Tonacroaghaun. To the right, the cliffs drop steeply to the Atlantic covered by low lying cloud. These are the highest sea cliffs in the whole of the British Isles.
