Poor Garraunbaun! Its summit area has been taken over by some sort of agri-industrial complex. We have turf cutters, a mobile phone mast, and a stone crushing operation all within 500 metres of the top. Then there's all the litter and associated crap that such enterprises generate. Not one of my favourites, it has to be said, and it would make a disappointing finale to an Arderin - Fearbreague - Garranbaun traverse. The photo I have uploaded is probably the least offensive of the ones I took. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/800/comment/2761/
