Why would you go up Bunnacunneen? True at 575m it isn't so high and true it is has hardly the same grand slopes as many of the surrounding ranges. However on a good day it has a full 360 degrees of view from the summit. The whole range of the Turks from Corcog to Leenane Hill, the flanks of Maumtrasna, Rinavore, Ben Gorm, the Devil's Mother and Mweelrea and then to the east there is Lough Mask. On the day we summitted there was a clear view of the Sheefrys, Croagh Patrick and some of the Nephin Begs which are 45km away. Include Ben Beg and Lugnabricka and you'll have a great circuit.

One way of reaching Bunnacunneen is as part of a circuit starting east of Lugnabricka. Leave the road at L989 566 C and head diagonally up towards the col at around L994558 D, a route that is mostly over relatively uncultivated land. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/318/comment/2405/
