      Barnaslingan Wood is situated on the eastern slope of The Scalp (meaning crevice, chasm or cleft) one of the most spectacular natural features in the Dublin area. This narrow rocky pass through which runs the old Dublin to Enniskerry road was formed by an Ice Age glacial lake overflow. There are many granite outcrops and boulders to be seen, especially on the wooded eastern Barnaslingan side. The west side and the dense pine woods of the Killegar summit contrast sharply with the naked boulders of the steep slopes below. If you are lucky you might also spot a white goat or two who belong to a wild herd that lives in the area. The view from the north is particularly attractive and was one much beloved by the Victorian photographers who came here with their large and heavy tripods and pennyfarthing bicycles.
