Gleann Uisce, 'the glen of water', is on the SE side of this peak. On the NW side, in the townland of Barr na nÓrán, this hill is known as Binn Dubh or Cnoc Dubh. The distinctive green Connemara marble is worked in a quarry in Barr na nÓrán. The quarry was started by Thomas Martin in the 1820s [TR]. Walks: for a route to the summit, see Paddy Dillon, Connemara, 146-50.   Benglenisky is the 485th highest place in Ireland. Benglenisky is the second most southerly summit in the Twelve Bens area.

I approached from the west, via the narrow road that runs north from the N59. The forest immediately west of Benglenisky has been felled, so it's easiest to follow the fence that marks the northern boundary of the former plantation. You should reach the summit in about 45 mins, with the option of continuing on to Lettery or Gabhar. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/420/comment/2872/
