David Herman [Hill Walkers Kerry] says of this summit "..Baurtregaum, Caherconree's plain and dumpy sister." and yes, the summit is flattish. However there are good views and the low shelters shown in the photo.
Probably its main appeal is in its valleys and ridges. Of valleys there are three to the north and one to the south. Between the valleys some great ridges for walking. Two of these contain other substantial summits such as Baurtregaum NW and Baurtregaum NE. The prominent and distinctively named Scragg, directly north, doesn't rise to a top. It all amounts to a lot of high ground, a point noted by Robert Lloyd Praeger [The Way That I Went] "Were it not eclipsed by the loftier and wilder mountains to the westward, Slieve Mish would rank as a very fine group of hills."

The summit in the distance is Baurtregaum NE; if you reach it and keep going you come to a further 600m peak: Baurtregaum Far NE. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/17/comment/2050/
