Binn an tSaighdiura lies just a 5 minute walk from Binn Chorr peak. Not a climb in itself but a great stop for views as part of a route taking in Binn Doire Chlair / Binn Chorr / Bencorrbeg starting from Derryclare wood. This route probably ranks as my favourite in the Twelve Bens for taking up relative beginners to hill-walking who may not be quite up to any of the Twelve Ben classic horseshoes. The views from Binn an tSaighdiura are fantastic taking in nearly all the Twelve Bens and providing a great view of the Gleann Chochain horseshoe aswell as across the Inagh Valley to the Maumturks.
