Going south from the marked and megalithic summit of Benduff you will visit a high ridge. GPS measurements suggested that it was much the same height as Benduff. Go further south and you will see this vista in front of you. If you visit you will see the summit of Devilsbit, Little Rock to the right of it and the "Bit" inbetween, though this is not so easily distinguishable in this small version of the wide panorama. To the right and not in the picture are, as of 2008, two small groups of wind-turbines. Curiously the telecoms towers of Kilduff Mountain are not visible.
The bunch of trees in the centre of the picture on the skyline is marked as Borrisnoe Mountain on the OS. This is not included in MV's lists for lack of prominence reasons. The central path in the picture continues right through the trees ahead eventually coming to a road which leads to Kilduff Mountain, thankfully bypassing Borrisnoe which is probably covered in trees.
