This party is at the summit of Benbrack looking towards Muckanaght (Meachanach). The view in this composite picture shows the coastline at Ballynakill Harbour to the right. To the right again and not shown would be Knockbrack (442m) part of a ridge that extends north west from Benbrack in the direction of Diamond Hill which is also visible from Benbrack. Note the relatively small amount of vegetation on the hard whitish quartzite underfoot. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/308/comment/698/
