Picture: Castle Hill over Dingle Bay

Perhaps because it is overshadowed by the other summits of the Slieve Mishes Castle Hill is seldom visited, however it has good views over Dingle Bay. This picture was taken from near the top of Baurtregaum NE Top. In the background and over Castlemaine Harbour (the inner recess of Dingle Bay) are the fields, coast and hedgerows just NW of Killorglin. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/276/comment/2623/
