A similar route to one I did last winter but without the inclusion of South Barrule. The coastal path south from Niarbyl is a very special part of the island and I followed it to White Beach, past the valley of Glion Mooar and all the way to the lonely Keeill and hermits cell at Lag ny Keeilley.
I then (foolishly, strongly not recommended!) headed straight up the hillside aiming for the summit of Cron ny Arrey Laa. I got there and had superb views from various precarious situations but won’t be repeating it.
Once onto the normal path from the Sloc I enjoyed dramatic views to the south.
I continued to the top past where the views to the north opened up.
I took the way marked path down to Easy Cushlin and then down the side of Kerroodhoo plantation back to the White beach or Trail Vrish. This is a magical place and the light was dramatic.
I returned to Niarbyl, exhausted from my struggle up from the keeill, but very happy with the walk.
11km and 800m of ascent in 4 hours.
