A nice view of Carn Mountain (the left of the two peaks) from the summit of Doan with Lough Shannagh sitting peacefully in the foreground. Like some of the other smaller peaks in the Mournes, Carn is best enjoyed as a spring board to its bigger sister (or brother) Slieve Muck!(creeping into the left of the picture) Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/300/comment/1209/
