Don't miss it !!
by David-Guenot  6 Jun 2016
This summit is a worthy addition to the list, a natural stop on the way up the main summit of Binn Mhor from Mam Ean, as it has splendid views over S Connemara to the S and the Twelve Bens to the W. A substantial cairn marks the rocky top and makes a perfect spot for a break on a good day. Not to be missed !! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1400/comment/18564/
