The visitors book box near the summit
by Aidy  14 Jan 2017
Just wanted to show the brilliantly constructed little box which contains the visitors book. It was too wet and windy on my visit to take it out and risk ruining it. A few shafts of light breaking through the stormy skies were a nice backdrop. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/409/comment/18797/
