The summit is flattish though very rugged with outcrops. Although not very high and certainly not well known there are views of the coast and north and south along the line of the Iveragh mountains. Knocknagantee to the NE and Coomcallee to the south.

The panorama is towards the SW and shows Coomavanniha Lough just to the left of Coomavanniha summit. On the skyline to the left is confused mass that is Coomeathcun.

Rest assured, when you visit this summit you are unlikely to meet other walkers. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/293/comment/1939/
