The mountain is the highest point on a rocky arête between Carrauntoohil (Ireland's highest peak) and Beenkeragh (Ireland's second-highest peak) in the MacGillycuddy's Reeks of County Kerry. Carrauntoohil is to the south and Beenkeragh to the north. To the west is Lough Eagher (a lake) and to the east is Lough Cummeenoughter, a tiny lake that flows into Lough Gouragh. The Bones is counted by the Scottish Mountaineering Club as a Furth; a 3,000 ft high peak outside Scotland. It is thus one of the 13 Irish Munros.
The Bones is also known as Carrauntoohil Tooth and Knockoughter. The grid reference is V800846.
