Great Viewing Point For The Rest Of The Mournes
by Aidy  21 Oct 2016
Fourth peak of the day, and the highest so far, having come via Ott Mountain, and Carn and Carn North Top. Views were spectacular, into the heart of the Mournes, over Lough Shannagh, Silent Valley and to the Irish Sea. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/245/comment/18671/
