Best view in the Mournes?
by paulocon  11 Sep 2012
I have been wondering recently what is the best viewpoint in the mountains of Ireland.

A recent walk of the Mourne Wall reminded me that The Mournes lay claim to what are possibly three of the finest views in Ireland, namely the view down to Silent Valley from Binnian, the view from the summit of Bearnagh and the expansive view from the summit of Corragh.

Corragh is a pretty humble top with a very humble summit cairn but it is a wonderful platform from which to view the High Mournes. It is also probably one of the lesser visited tops in the Mournes given that it can be easily by-passed by using the Brandy Pad. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/212/comment/14809/
