MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Cush in area Galty Mountains, Ireland
 
A Galty viewing platform.
by simon3  10 Jun 2010
Cush is the most northerly of the mountains in the Galtee range. As a viewing platform it affords great views of the northern, cliffy faces of Galtymore, Galtybeg and Greenane. (As usual in Ireland, it is the north facing side of the 500m mountains which have had the most wear from glacial action.) Our photo shows the summits of Galtybeg (left of centre) and Galtymore (to right). Beneath and to the left of Galtybeg is the corrie that contains Borheen Lough. To the right of Galtybeg you can just make out the lip of Lough Diheen, a little jewel in the side of the Galtees at 554m altitude. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/215/comment/532/
