After all the excitement of the Ben Lugmore ridge, Ben Bury proved to to be somewhat more prosaic. From Ben Lugmore West Top it's a short and easy slope to the broad col. Easy walking across a stony, grassless plateau to the summit cairn. Mind you, the views may be the best I've ever seen from a summit: the blue island-speckled atlantic to the west, and the bulk of Mweelrea to the south.
