Walking up Beann South Top (BST) from the south you will be well rewarded in clear weather by taking the scenic route over the east spur ( height 531). There's a great view of Mullaghanattin. While BST will always play second fiddle to the other summits of the Mullaghanattin circuit, it does have a steep NE side. From there you will get an uninterrupted view of over 600m of mountainside, starting from "The Pocket" with its lush greens and meandering streams to the flanks with big outcrops to the bare summit. Very striking in the morning with the sun at your back.

This photo however, shows another point of interest, the west side of BST. The vegetation serves to emphasise the tortured shape of the sandstone rock layers. (The viewing point mentioned above for The Pocket is behind the top.) Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/213/comment/2491/
