The stones of the forecourt forming 'The King's Ring" showing up nicely in the snow.
This monument, close to the modern Border, overlooks the strategic 'Ulster Gap' between Dundalk and Newry,
and like many Court-tombs commands a wide view west and south.
Farther to the east there are dramatic corniche-views over the fjord of Carlingford Lough with the Mountains of Mourne beyond.
