A fine top in its own right.

Tomies North Top gets less press that it's big brother, but it is a very fine top in its own right, offering superlative views in all directions, including fine panoramas over Lough Leane to the east and even better vies of the Reeks. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1421/comment/23557/
