Looking the other way

The French writer Guy de Maupassant said that he had lunch in the Eiffel Tower frequently as it was the only place in Paris that he didn't have to look at the thing. I feel much the same about hills like Garraunbaun, which has very little to recommend it visually, but offers decent views when you're actually on it looking away.
