Another wind turbine
by Conor74  3 Sep 2012
Lovely views across Beara, the Cahas and the Mishkish ranges, from Dursey right up to the Sugarloaf and across around to Sheeps Head. And great views over the island itself, the Martello Towers, the batteries of Lonehort in the distance.

And of course, a few hundred metres away...the wind turbine... A real stomach churning one too, in the middle of an area of such beauty. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/985/comment/14794/
