The baby giant
by wicklore  8 Nov 2011
If you have traversed the eastern Reeks from Cruach Mhòr, you will reach the last 3000 foot summit in this section- Cnoc an Chuillinn. From this height you next gaze down upon smaller Cnoc na Toinne. Viewing it from the lofty realm of Cnoc an Chuillinn, and framed against the backdrop of the mighty trio of Carrauntoohil, Beenkeragh and Caher, it is easy to dismiss Cnoc na Toinne as a mere minnow amongst giants. It is perhaps worth pausing to consider that Cnoc na Toinne actually ranks as the 23rd highest mountain in Ireland, and is higher than Mweelrea, Nephin, Mangerton and Brandon Peak to name but a few notable summits. It is a reflection of what exactly you have just achieved in traversing from Cruach Mhòr when you can look down upon one of Irelands highest mountains and think ‘oh we’re heading down into the hills now!’

The photo shows some of our group descending from Cnoc an Chuillinn towards Cnoc na Toinne to the left, with Ireland’s three highest mountains filling the background. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/23/comment/6616/
