Relaxing on Benfree when we used to do The Glencorbet Horseshoe on sunny day. Navigation is in summit Benbrack. Wanted to put panoramatic view, but there are good picture, so, just picture of me and my boyfriend. Just a word. This summit is like a best friend to Ben Baun, or u will climb up this mountain without ascending Ben Baun? :-) Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/216/comment/2658/
