The picture shows one of the fine tors on Hen mountain, the north-western outlier to Cock mountain. At only about 360m, it has the feel of somewhere much higher particularly on a misty day. The other summits of Hen are also worth visiting.

You can get to Hen and Cock starting from the car-park at J 233278 A. There are no guarantees about the safety of car-parks anywhere but there is a house directly overlooking this one. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/447/comment/1358/
