I think it's fair to say that Purple Mountain NE Top (or Tomies South) offers probably the best views across to the reeks from the Purple Range. Standing at the summit Cairn, the views on a clear day are breathtaking. (Sorry for two comments on the same top but it's my excuse for posting a second picture!!)
