From the vicinity of Cloghane church there is a strange optical illusion whereby this peak seems higher than the summit, though it is actually over 100m lower.   Brandon Peak is the 25th highest place in Ireland.

Summit of Brandon Peak, looking along the ridge to Gearhane (in the middle distance), with Dingle Bay in the distance. Fantastic views (on a clear day) - you can see all the way over to the three Coumloughra peaks. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/24/comment/571/
