Not much to add to what is one here already, a very easy walk across from Purple NE Top. Even with the snow cover only light, enough had accumulated on the gap to build up small drifts. Shehy offers contrasting views to the rest of the Purple Range, looking down over Lough Leane and Muckross Lake to the town of Killarney itself.
