Day 14: Diamond Hill, Letterfrack
From here, the fully signposted and surfaced track took me along the Sruffaunboy Nature Trail before branching off towards the cone of Diamond Hill.
Gravel footpaths and wooden boardwalks eased the passage over the bog as I approached the mountains, with a steady climb up the western slopes to the summit ridge.
From here, look to the sea to Inishturk, Inishbofin and Inishshark; to Tully Mountain rising over Ballynakill Harbour and along the intricate Connemara coastline.
Connemara is Irish landscape at its most dramatic. With soaring mountains, scattered loughs and an intricate coastline, this remote part of Galway is a world away from the trappings of urban life.
