Here is a view towards Bascadh West Top, taken while en route to Bascadh. The summit is located on the ridge to the left. Knocklomena is the bulk rising up on the right with the familiar shape of Mullaghanattin behind that. I was following the route in Adrian Hendroff"s book of the Dingle, Iveragh and Beara peninsulas, The hills above"Molls'gap " A great walk and recommended to everyone, but keep it for a good day. It would be a shame to miss out on the spectacular views. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1420/comment/18292/
