Looking east from Currywongaun. Doughruagh and Lough Touther in the centre of the photo.. Benchoona and Garruan to the left of the photo; Ben Brack to the right. Easiest way to cross to Doughruagh is by staying slightly left of Lough Touther, Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1182/comment/15921/
