I climbed Bencroy on 19 June 2008 as part of a circular walk over Slieve Anierin and Knockacullion. Although I walked to the summit at H 045 191 E (518m) as shown on the Mountain Views list, I noted that this reference did not correspond with the high point shown on the OS I Sheet 26 at H 049 191 F (513m) some 400m further east. There is no point shown on the map at 518m. The top is quite expansive and featureless with a few bumps any of which at a glance could be high points.Has anyone any comments on the difference in the MR and height between Mountain Views and OSI. The OSI high point is 513m. There is no point on the map showing 518m. If in doubt do both. I also used the approach up the light green strip on Bencroy's southern slope described by eflanaga in climb dated 06. 02. 19. The walk back was along the moorland below the Slieve Anierin , Knockacullion, Bencroy ridge to the start point at H0320014700 G. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/416/comment/3193/
