Caher West Top is the fifth-highest mountain peak in Ireland, at 973.4 metres (3,194 ft).[2]

Geography[edit]

The mountain is located about 500 metres west of Caher East Top and is part of the MacGillycuddy's Reeks of County Kerry. Its grid reference is V789840.[1] Other nearby peaks include: Skregmore, The Bones, Cnoc Iochtair, Carrauntoohil and Beenkeragh.[3]

Caher West Top is counted by the Scottish Mountaineering Club as a Furth (a 3,000-footer outside Scotland),[4] which is why it is sometimes referred to as one of the Irish Munros.
