How Far From Cloyne to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Cloyne to various places of note, such as Parliament Hill.

  • The National Capital at Parliament Hill (Ottawa, ON) is 83 miles [133.6 km]<1> to the east northeast (ENE). If you could drive a straight line from Cloyne to Parliament Hill, with an average speed<3>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take less than two hours to make the trip.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Cloyne) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Cloyne. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from CloyneOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Cloyne. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 44.8179, Longitude: -77.1854    
<2>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
<3>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.
<4>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Cloyne to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<5>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 307.459 degrees.
<6>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 303.89 degrees.
<7>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 302.296 degrees.
