Turners Rock is immediately east of the tunnel at the summit of the Caha Mountain Pass. The rocks hereabouts are grooved due to the passage of ice according to T.J. Barrington (Discovering Kerry).   Turners Rock is the 846th highest place in Ireland. Turners Rock is the most westerly summit in the Shehy/Knockboy area.

Not the worst spot to celebrate 100 local peaks

Came across the top of the tunnel from Baurearagh (watch for the hole that goes through to the road) and after a quick steep climb gained the top. Lovely views over Glengarriff and a bit of sun made for a very pleasant spot to spend a few minutes. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/732/comment/15160/
