The summit of Macklawn (Macklaun on the OS Map) is not particularly exciting. There's a smallish cairn on a rounded top. However it is a good viewing point. If you are visiting it as the start of the Glenbeigh Horseshoe, then you can see the finish on Drung Hill, though there's only hints of the walk beyond Meenteog. There's also a good view of Colly.

Central beyond the immediate green summit area in the picture is the ridge leading away. Left of centre on the skyline is Seefin (493m) with Lough Caragh to its right. Left of the picture on the skyline is the bumpy low (270m) group of hills that you will encounter if you go south west from Glenbeigh. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/259/comment/1859/
