Short Summary created by Onzy,  6 Oct 2014
Bengorm can be considered a mere waypoint on the route to Corranabinnia, but this is to do it an injustice as it is a very fine peak in its own right, shapely and with not insignificant approaches from both north and south. From its summit and the ascent itself, there are fine views of the Corranabinnia ridge, while back south Clew Bay opens up as you rise.

Nonetheless, there is no doubt that the best routes taking in Bemgorm are those that are heading either to or from Corranabinnia, with Bengorm being either the first or last peak in a round. Perhaps the most classic route is the circuit of Glendahurk Valley, taking in Bengorm, its NW top and the 2 Corranabinnias and making use of the raking spur south of Corranabinnia SW top. The horseshoe can be done in either direction, from starting points at either L91061 97962 A or about 300m further south, where there is a stile on the right. At 15k with an ascent of c.1,000m, the circuit should take about 6 hours.

An up and down route to Bengorm from either of the above starting points is perfectly possible and should take about 2-3 hours.

Another circular option is the challenging round of the Glennamong Valley, taking in Tirkslieve, both Glennamongs, Corranabinnia and the two Bengorms, before descending to the road near Furness. The option of a short extension to Corranabinnia SW top is also possible. This is a walk of 20k+, with some road walking and will take about 8 hours Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/309/comment/5069/
