Slieve League Sea Stack Climb

Slieve League

   I've had a cunning plan for a wee while now that has been ticking away on the endless to-do list. A visit to the summit of the Giant's Table sea stack at the base of Slieve League in south-west Donegal has been a lurking urge for the past few years. 

   Slieve League has become a major Donegal visitor attraction in the last few years with ever-increasing numbers visiting the Bunglass viewpoint at the road end out of Teeling. More information about Slieve league CLICK HERE

   The logistics for Slieve League are reasonably straightforward with access to sea level being a very thick heather scramble at about grade 1. It is really a case of following your nose and avoiding the slopes without thick heather. This takes you on to the Huge boulder storm beach at the base of Slieve League and facing out onto the Giants Table and Chair sea stacks.
