One of my favourites in the Burren

Slieve Carran is an easy enough climb but still offers up some astounding scenery overlooking Eagle's Rock. At the summit, there's a huge megalithic cairn that has never been excavated. Take your time walking across the limestone as it can be deceptive in many parts. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/927/comment/19836/
