You can use the trig pillar on Mullaghanattin to steady your camera for views around the Mullaghanattin circuit. Also take a the view north east to the south side of the Reeks.

The day I did it the wind was strong, there were clouds darkening the land and some mist about and still the view is a statement about grand and powerful slopes.

Before we describe the summits, take a look down to the bottom of the picture near the left corner. One or two buildings, almost insignificant in themselves, give scale to the whole picture.

On the skyline and around 10k away are Cnoc an Chullin central and Cnoc na Toine to the left, both part of the traverse of the Reeks. Below them the steep sided Broaghnabinnia and below that a spur of Stumpa Duloigh, the highest point of the Iveraghs. The dark ridge filling the lower right corner of the picture is part of Knockanauttin.

For completeness, the fainter peak on the skyline to the right (actually its 17k away) is Purple Mountain.

What a vantage point for a view. Someone: go back their on a better day (perhaps with dawn or winter sun highlighting the texture and shape). This must be one of the best vantage points for a dramatic shot.
