Climbers who follow the Faha Ridge and stick to the crest will eventually emerge on the summit ridge near the grassy top of this peak. In clear conditions it commands a spectacular view of the Faha Ridge.   Brandon North Top is the second highest mountain in the Brandon Group area and the 15th highest in Ireland.

Picture of Brandon North Top (right of photo) with point 809m (left of photo) looking out onto Brandon Bay - if you're climbing Mount Brandon from Cloghane and up behind Locha Coim an Cnoic take a few minutes (10) and a short detour to climb this peak , its well worth the effort for the views.
