Fine views over the bay

Parked at V93218 61229 A (barely room for one car) beside Beara Way stile. Over the stile and up the track, I left the track and went straight for the peak, but it's probably best to follow the track to the col and walk along the ridge enjoying the views down to the bay. The peak is marked by a large cairn. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/579/comment/14982/
