Binn Gleann Uisce is probably one of the most dull of the Twelve Bens standing just a little apart from Binn Leitiri with little additional climb. It's peak is flat and meandering and barely a worth a visit unless you're just planning a short half day walk and want to take in a different route back to the start. For this I'd recommend starting from the Youth Hostel at Binn Leitiri and climbing Binn Leitiri, Binn Gabhar and then returning via Binn Gleann Uisce and the Clifden road.
