If you don't want to do the entire Maamturks ridge walk, a pleasant afternoon (assuming good weather) can be spent on the section between Maumeen and Mam Ochoige. Follow the Western Way signs as far as Maumeen and then follow the fence north up to Binn Chaonaigh. The picture shows the summit area looking East, with L. Corrib in the far distance. The small lake makes a nice spot for lunch if you started late. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/225/comment/403/
