Erroneously marked as ‘Glengower’ on the Discovery series map. On the summit of this mountain you will find thrift (or sea-pink) in bloom during the late spring, despite the fact that it is far inland.   Binn Gabhar is the 167th highest place in Ireland.

Reaching Bengower, peak of the goat, from the north will be a surprise to you if you think there isn’t any scrambling in the Bens.

This is the summit cairn and what looks like a bit of a shelter. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/167/comment/1006/
