Last stop on the circuit of Coumloughra (or first, depending which direction you go) is Caher. There are three tops to Caher, and in the mist it's quite easy to miss one of them if you're not paying attention! Also, be careful on your way up from the Carrauntoohil side - the path takes you quite close to the cliff edge. The picture shows the three peaks shrouded in mist, taken from near the summit of Carrauntoohil. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/3/comment/509/
