The view to the west from the top of Carrowkeel. The pyramid shaped mountain on the horizon is Croagh Patrick.
Pointed stone known as the Croagh Patrick stone within the large right-hand recess of Cairn K at Carrowkeel.
Moving northwards the next mountain is Nephin in north Mayo, one of the twelve chief Mountains of ancient Ireland. Nephin has a large cairn on the summit. Next up is Kesh Corran, which covers a good portion of the horizon. On the highest piont, within a huge neolithic enclosure, is a large unopened cairn called Finn MacCumhail's hunting mound or the Pinnacle. On the north end of Kesh is Cairnanweelan where two caves and a megalithic building are found.

Continuing clockwise we come to Muckelty hill and Knocknashee, two sites with neolithic and later monuments on their summits. Muckelty has a stone cairn within a large round enclosure that encircles the hilltop. Muckelty is a double hill, like Knocknarea and Cairns Hill. Knocknashee is a massive site, a neolithic village of 30 huts is located on the flat summit between two cairns. The higher of the two cairns has a chamber or cist with some probable iron age scratches. The whole hill was fortified during the bronze age. A fascinating site.
