Cnoc Na Péiste summit, taken while on a circuit just shy of 15K, which began at Glengesh Viewpoint, taking in order - Common Mtn, Cnoc Na Péiste, Balbane Hill and Maol Na nDamh. As can be seen from the photograph Balbane's windturbines can be seen in the background as can Maol Na nDamh (right). Excellent views all around - no serpents or beasties to be seen but there were quite a few midges, not encountered on the other three hills. Perhaps, they were attracted by the locheen a short distance NNW of the summit proper. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/465/comment/3793/

The picture I took from the Spot Height 442 IG 69917 85272 A which provides a much better profile of Cnoc Na Péiste was poor so I'm including this one taken on the opposite side of the mountain from Balbane Hill. A short drop from the top of the former and a short traverse over rather marshy ground, with the windfarm to your right, will take you from summit to summit in 15-20 minutes.
