Excellent Ridge Walk with Scrambling
Short Summary created by Onzy,  6 Oct 2014
The attraction, and the high rating, of Corranabinnia SW top is largely in the fine ridge which extends north east to its main peak. The summit itself is at the east end narrow grassy plateau oriented east to west. Views are good in all directions, particularly over Clew Bay to the south.

Corranabinnia SW top is remote from roads and consequently there are a relatively small number of practical routes and most of these involve other peaks. However, an up and down route could be made using the spur heading south from the summit, parking around L91061 97962 A. Around 2-3 hours.

The most obvious circuit is that of Glendahurk Valley, taking in Bengorm, its NW top and the 2 Corranabinnias and making use of the raking spur south of Corranabinnia SW top. The horseshoe can be done in either direction, from the starting point above or about 300m further south, where there is a stile on the right. At 15k with an ascent of c.1,000m, the circuit should take about 6 hours.

A more ambitious circuit starting further east in the vicinity of Srahmore and centering on the Glennamong Valley is also possible. This would take in Tirkslieve, both Glennamongs, Corranabinnia, an out and back extension to Corranabinnia SW top and the two Bengorms, before descending to the road near Furness. This is a walk of 22k+, with some road walking and will take about 8 hours. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/134/comment/4894/
