The name of Torc Mountain, like Mount Eagle and the Wolf's Step on the Dingle Peninsula, reminds us of a wild animal once common in the forests of Ireland. Wild boar is significant in Celtic mythology, being depicted on Celtic artefacts found in continental Europe, Ireland and Britain. It represents physical strength and heroic fighting skills.   Torc Mountain is the 458th highest place in Ireland. Torc Mountain is the most northerly summit in the Mangerton area.

The climb is easyish and the view from the top is magnificent. All the lakes from the Upper Lake to L.Guitane and looking down on Muckross Lake and gardens and the full sweep of Lough Leane. A great view of the Reeks and The Eagles Nest. The full sweep of Mangerton and a slight peep into The Devils Punchbowl Rate 4 star. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/383/comment/621/
