Carran Far North Top (CFNT) is the north most outlier of the seldom visited Carran group. To the north the Mangerton group is very visible. Mangertonbeg (388m) for example at 10k away, is beyond and directly in line with Kilgarvan the nearest town to CFNT.

The photo shows the great sweeping view of the remote and steep side of the north ridge leading eventually to Knockboy (not shown). Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/443/comment/2256/
