From Birreencorragh South Top (see for first part of Horseshoe walk) it is a relatively easy walk to its sister summit. Dropping down from the South-Top onto Spot Ht 539 IG02398 03694 C you proceed onwards to the col dividing the main summit from the West Top (now a short distance directly North) and the spur dropping down to Mount Eagle to the west. The West top is (as gerrym suggests) just a short distance away necessitating a short drop to a narrow saddle IG01651 04811 D and then an equally short climb to a featureless grassy domed top. The views, however, into the main Nephin Beg range to the west/north-west, north towards the Ox Mountains and across a beautiful narrow secluded valley to the main summit are anything but plain. Picture shows view north over Bullaunmore towards the Ox Mountains in the distance, from Bireencorragh West Top. Having taken the mandatory GPS reading and a few photographs I retraced my steps to the narrow saddle with a view to making my way onwards to Birreencorragh's main top.
