The picture shows entire Brandon Ridge with Brandon Mountain behind to the left ,its summit just touching the clouds,then Brandon South Top (Droim na Muice)just above my hat and Brandon Peak peeping out from behind Gearhane in the extreme right.If you get the weather the views in all directions can only be described as splendid, Eagle Mountain and the Blaskets to the south west, back over Brandon bay to Tralee to the north east an of course the Central Dingle range to the South with the 'Reeks visible in the distance - possibly the best ridge walk in Ireland, it is one to do before you die Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/37/comment/1053/
