Hi Goffik.
There's only one place for me. You've probably never been to Cork but there's a small stone circle on the high side of a hill called Knockawaddra, which translates as 'Hill of the Dog'. From there you can sit and look east along the Argideen valley to Knocks and beyond, south to Glanbrack and to the white stones on Maulatanvally and west to Carrigfadda and Coomatallin. Between these two mountains is a pass, like a shallow 'u', where the winter sun drops at solstice at the end of the circle's axis line. It's difficult for me to go anywhere else.
Nice topic.
