MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Beann Far SW Top in area Dunkerron Mountains, Ireland
Picture: Beann Far SW from the west side.
 
Views from way off the road.
by simon3  26 Apr 2011
North East of Coomnacronia there's a high vantage point for looking along the bumpy Dunkerron ridge leading towards Mullaghanattin and allowing views of Beann Far SW Top which appears in this picture with Mullaghanattin/Beann behind it and the Reeks to the left side. Although not shown in this picture there's a great view of Cloon Lough and some parts of the cliffy side of Coomura.
It's curious isn't it how you can't see the famous Mullaghanattin toblerone shape from this angle. The sharper, sunlit triangle beneath Mullaghanattin is BFSWT and the shadowed top on the right skyline is Sallagh. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/221/comment/6313/
