Profitable detour
by Colin Murphy  28 Apr 2022
Although there are fine views from the summit area, one that isn't visible from the cairn is that overlooking Lough Talt, so I heartily recommend that your make a minor detour about 200m NWW from the cairn to G373 157 starE where you are presented with a magnificent view of the sizeable lough and surrounding landscape.
