A thing of beauty

We were lucky to climb this summit on a glorious winter's day, with magical light and with a backdrop of the snow-capped Reeks. While the summit itself isn't anything to write home about, the surrounding panoramas are splendiferous! Don't go up here on in the mist - save it for a clear, blue-sky day.
