Eagle Island West
Right, don't ask me how I got there. I set the sat nav for a place called Aghadoon, which seemed it might afford the best views from the mainland. At Belmullet, it branched out west towards the west coast of the peninsular, which was okay except it then kept on asking me to turn right up grass-covered lanes. So I ignored it and continued on the road until I saw the sea. Here, there was a small road, leading north, which soon deteriorated into a gravel track. About a mile on I ended up opposite Eagle Island.
