More to Savour than you might Think

There is a tendency to see Eskatarriff as comprising solely its less than spectacular summit (certainly less striking than the smaller adjacent East Top). In fact we need to remember that Eskatarriff includes the "rim" of the horseshoe that runs from the col with Coomacloghane, and therefore provides a unique view into the Pocket allowing the walker to see Tooth and Coomacloghane on the left and its own Tops and Lackabane on the right. I thought that this was a special place. While the photo shows the view into the Pocket, don't forget that a simple 180 degree turn reveals Glenbeg Lough, and Lackawee and the Knocknagrees. So , although this "rim" is a tiny bit "peaty", it is beautifully located. Typically, I had this place entirely to myself, achieved by the simple device of getting up early Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/275/comment/17654/
