Benbaun route with river crossing
The approach for Benbaun from the small road off R344 and parking at point B on the map involves crossing a river as described by others here. I noticed on Sunday that this river is liable to swelling if there has been a lot of rain in the previous days making it impassible.
I want to attempt this again on another day but if there was someone I could check with a day or a few days beforehand on the status of the river that would be great. Having that confirmation would be ideal before we set out on a three hour car journey to the start.
If there is someone living in the vicinity and wouldn't mind giving me an update when the time comes please contact me through Members Message Service and we can arrange it.

Visited in 2014. There's a sandy beach and a solid pier with slipway and a picnic table facing the mainland. The road from the pier all the way thru the village is a robust concrete one, but it's ...

Surprisingly Donegal islands have a very good mobile internet reception, sometimes better than in an office in Dublin.

Now living furth of Scotland and getting to know the Irish hills. If you come across a Scottish hill Walker with dodgy knees and walking sedately, stop and say hello.
