I did the Failmore Horseshoe on 14.June 2009. I started in the Failmore Valley by the streetbend where the Western Way leaves the little street. Followed the Western Way to the holy well on the col between Binn Mhor and Binn Chaoignah. Then i climbed in northwest direction beside a fence which leads me to te summit plateau of Binn Chaoignah. It takes around 1,5 hrs to get to the top of Binn Chaoignah. The wheater was clearing up, so i had beautiful views around, especialy to the Inagh valley and the Twelve Bens. And i could see nearly the whole further way i had to go, via Binn idir an dá Log and Culog back to my car (Continuation on Binn idir an dá Log ) Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/225/comment/3915/
