Westernmost of the big lakes of the Glenbeigh horseshoe, Coomnacronia Lake can be seen some 750 m NE of Been Hill. Steep cliffs lead 270m down to the water. Future ice ages will cut right across the ridge from Been Hill to Beenmore, but for humanity's era there is a glorious though short 250m cliff edge walk en-route between the two.
