Located on southern boundary of Glennahoo townland. The location of this feature looks odd on the Discovery map but on the 1/2 inch map it is the lower peak which directly overlooks Maghanaboe and An Seabhac's description confirms this: binn árd cnuic ar an dteorainn theas [Glennahoo townland]. Anglicised name appears on ½ inch map.   Beenatoor is the 296th highest place in Ireland.

Steep ascent, unmarked summit.
by Colin Murphy  2 Nov 2015
Quite a steep ascent from the Glenahoo River track, but going quite good - mainly short grass and firm underfoot. Unmarked top, which is just a grassy hump. Fine views - particularly to the north. As commented on by others, it can be an extremely windy place at the summit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/291/comment/18381/
