Glencappul Top is the highest point of a spur leading east from Mangerton North Top (MNT). According to my measurements with a GPS it is only 13.7m above the col to MNT so may not be included in future lists. However, that said, it is a great vantage point to see into the Horses Glen/ Glencappul valleys and the western side of Stoompa.

Our photo shows the summit. The lake on the left is Loch Guitane, the double humped summit on the right is Stoompa and the misty summit in the background is Crohane. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/111/comment/3497/
