Although there is steep ground to the left and right of this picture, the summit of Beann Far SW is fairly rounded as this picture shows.

Describing the route from Beann to the heights above Lough Reagh (800m to NE of this top) Claude Wall [Mountaineering in Ireland] said of this area "The writer was 'pounded' once while descending one of the valleys opening into the range, which bore an innocent appearance, but at closer quarters consisted of a series of terrace-like cliffs." Be warned.

To the left is An Corrán (Finnararagh) above Lough Comeen, with the plateau that has Knocknagantee to the left and Knockmoyle to the right on the skyline. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/221/comment/2495/
