    Anyone know the latest suss on the island.

    I'm pretty sure I read that Callery won his case and is getting to build a cafe and hostel or whatever on the island.
    Anyone know if this currently means more camping/campfire restrictions?

    Thinking of going out again in a few weeks.

    bleep. is this thread too old to reply to?

    at least 8 years later and I still haven't visited blasket, sauce creek OR climbed brandon. that's what having kids does to you I suppose.

    EDIT: ah. you can reply to old threads now. you couldn't before.

    anyway, still DEFINITELY going to sauce creek. sometime.

      haha! CURSE YOU IMAGESHACK

      yes, I vaguely recall - they were deadly shots. I remember looking at them and going "I want to go there". Clearly not enough yet though, although I have been in the area twice, vagely stalking the walking route.

      This post always stuck with me and I finally got round to doing An Sás at the weekend. Beautiful spot.

        Nice one! A blast from the past- glad it was of some inspiration. Did you camp?

        Nah, just did the trek. Have friends in Feothanach these days and I'm not one to refuse hospitality. Might camp on the island next time I'm down if Star Wars hasn't totally ruined it by then.
