Viewing Iveragh
by CaptainVertigo  27 Aug 2014
A major bonus on the summit of Tooth Mountain is the view over Ardgroom Harbour towards Iveragh. It's great to walk along a broad ridge over the sea (Kenmare River) and to see the mountains in the distance. I'm sure that I saw the Skelligs shimmering far away. The photo gives some small idea of what's on offer. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/295/comment/17652/
