Ravens Rock has a fine view of the 1.5k ridge running SE to the summit of Slieve Foye. Ravens Rock is part of the broad ridge from Windy Gap to the Carlingford Mountain area. There's an interesting col between Ravens Rock and Carlingford Mountain. Certainly in June there's an abundance of bog cotton in the area which is called the White Bog on OSNI maps. There's a classic mountain lake with reeds etc. All very photogenic. There was even two large black birds - the ravens perhaps - perched nearby.
