This peak is particularly impressive when viewed across the abyss of Mám na Gaoithe from Bengower. Braon can mean 'drip' or 'drop', but may be a personal name here. It is the basis of the surnames Ó Braoin and Mac Braoin, anglicised as Breen and McBreen.   Binn Bhraoin is the 126th highest place in Ireland.

After just climbing Gabhar, the climb up to the summit of Binn Bhraoin is tough. By staying to the left of the main scree field you can pick up a track that weaves up to the top. If you are doing the whole Chochan circuit, note that there are steeper climbs ahead. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/122/comment/2205/
