From Purple, this is about as easy as it gets. A short jaunt downhill along the distinct track followed by an even shorter walk uphill leads to the cairn at the summit of PNE Top. Referred to as Tomies South in the Harveys Map and by Paddy Dillon in his book, I think Purple NE Top probably makes more sense given that the spot height is actually higher than Tomies Mountain proper. The NE top offers more superb views across to the reeks. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/72/comment/4409/
