Brandon Mountain East Top in the centre of the picture viewed from the Brandon Ridge between Brandon Mountain and Drom na Muice. Below on the valley floor you can see the Locha Choim an Chnoic and just above them the path that starts out at the Faha grotto above Cloghane.The walk up this path is quite easy going and well defined and offers great views down to the lakes and back over Brandon Bay to Tralee.
