I would think if you made the climb from the riverbank up to the house three or four times a day you would be very fit indeed. The boats are interesting, what about the crests at the top of the uprights? The boats look too big for personal purposes, could they be tourism related?

    From comments on that other shot, this tourist route ran from Navan down to Oldbridge, which is where the Boyne becomes tidal just above Drogheda.
