Visited in 2014. On the photo you can see a village on Owey and a pier to the right. There is also a sheltered harbour far to the left (out of sight). Notice two skew telegraph poles by the village.
Opposite the water is Cruit Island connected by a bridge to mainland. A golf course takes the whole visible part of it. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1379/comment/19551/
