After descending the boggy , rutted side of Slieve Snaght we paused for a few minutes near Loch Sliabh Sneachta .This lake must have been scooped out from the rock by passing glaciers. There is evidence of the glaciers' force in the almost flat surfaces of the exposed rock in this area. We walked up the short climb to gain the col between Drumnaliffern and Bingorms and turned first for the flat summit of Drumnaliffern and then on to the equally flat ridge(after point 575mtrs) to reach the summit of Bingorms.From the summit of Bingorms we descended down a very tricky, steep slope to approx. B 936 173 F before another steep descent to arrive back at the main road . We made a run for the cars parked on the slipway at Lough Barra as the midges appeared to be a bit hungry.It was a very foggy afternoon so the opportunities for photography were few. The photo was taken from the col with Bingorms on the right of the photo , Lough Sliabh Sneachta and the slopes of Slieve Snaght rising up into the clouds on the left.
