Me and my boyfrend did The Glencorbet Horseshoe in 6 hours under the clear sky and on sunny day, as we saw the accurate navigation in magazine. This walk took up four summits including the tallest of all the Bens : Benbrack (Binn Bhreac) - Muckanaght (Meacanach) - Benfree (Binn Fhraoigh) - Ben Baun (Binn Bhán), We parked our car on L 799 574 A. The walk was great pleasure for us and very good challenge. Especially ascent of Muckanaght was hard. The navigation of these horseshoe is below from Gerrym.
