This summit is something of an outlier to the NE of the Bens and, like so many outliers, it has excellent views both of its parent group the Bens and also of the Maumturks, the Bens north of Kylemore Lough and further afield.

The photo shows the pass of Mam Turk of the eponymously named Maumturks. Many weary travellers following the Maamturk walk will remember the hard pull up out of this pass all too well.

Beyond is first the darkish horizontal stripe formed by the area of Mám na Lí (SE ridge off Leenane Hill) and then Bunnacunneen in the Joyce Country.

On a good day, tarry a while on this summit to pick out several other interesting features. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/775/comment/3714/
