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 313th highest summit in Ireland.

A Worthwhile Detour
by ahogan  28 Nov 2015
Having visited Stradbally mountain and Beensokee (see my comments on these summits or track 3158 for the other parts of the route), we tacked on this detour to Beenatoor before heading back over Coombane. From the summit of Beenoskee, the initial descent (head southwest to avoid the steepest ground on the northern side) is steep with loose rocks underfoot at times, before changing to flatter and wetter ground at the bottom with a nice mixture of peat hags and bog holes to hone your bog jumping technique. At the base of the col, swing back in a north-westerly direction to skirt around the base of Coombane on the way to Beenatoor. While the summit of Beenatoor is relatively flat and unremarkable, the out and back detour (adds about 2km to route) is well worth it for the views from down into the steep sided Glenahoo valley directly below and further afield to the Brandon ridge.
