The large peninsula, which is very nearly an island, lying between Achill and the mainland of Mayo is called Corraun (Ir. Corrán Acla, 'sickle of Achill'). The name may refer to the shape of this hill or perhaps to the promontory Gubnahardia, near which the village of Corraun is situated. Corraun is part of the parish of Achill. For a walk on the S slopes of Corraun Hill, see Siúlóidí Acla, walk M.   Corraun Hill is the 492nd highest summit in Ireland.

Corraun Loop
by Secret-Five  20 May 2010
Walked the Corraun loop on 16-05-10, a dry and partly overcast day. Entered via the forest road into the Coillte plantation off the Multanny to Achill Sound road -about 4 km past Mulranny. Followed the good track through two gates keeping left at the junction after the second gate, continuing for 500 metres more and then making straight for the nearest valley on the left, the one in which Loch Culleylea is located. The going was easy and the route straight up to Coraun East Top, from behind the lake, was a bit of a scramble at times, but more than made up for by the splendid views in all directions. Continued on to Corraun Hill, from which Clare Island and Achill Beg came into view. Easy and dry underfoot. The view back to Corraun East Top was particularly beautiful, looking East-North-East, with Glennamong and the Nephin Begs forming the back-drop in the distance.
Dropped down to Knockacorraun Lough, hardly a prettier and more lonely little corrie lake to be found. Headed back to the start keeping south of Tawnytruffaun loch, where the going got a bit soft, then immediately turning north and heading around Lough Cam and on across the northern shore of Loch Laur. Picked up and followed some waymarks which bring you back to the forest road and completion of the loop. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/405/comment/4752/
