Purple Mountain West (West??) Top is outshone by its majestic neighbour, but has the merit of a splendid situation at the hub of the Purple-Shehy-Tomies group. Great views all round, and easy walking over its summit too. The photo shows the ridge to Purple Mountain. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/72/comment/1896/
