Flattish top, though steep north side with good views.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, scapania, simon3,  30 May 2016
Unlike its pointy neighbours this summit is a 500m long East-West scarp. It has a steep northern side and broad high area to the south, lightly strewn with stones and boulders. It is easiest reached from the West via Mweelrea or East via "the Ramp" up from Coum Dubh (the Sruhauncullinmore valley). The Ramp starts at the east of the valley and takes you to the col between Ben Bury and Ben Lugmore (West). Other ways to reach the top include coming from the Ben Lugmores.
Access and parking is available from the R335 at the head of Doo Lough, at L82826950 A.
Ben Bury has good views including towards Croagh Patrick twinned from its viewpoint with Nephin.

For alternative access as part of Mweelrea circular route see short summary for Ben Lugmore East Top. Having passed that summit along with Ben Lugmore and Ben Lugmore West Top, proceed NW for 1 km up gently rising, increasingly stony terrain. Ben Bury's broad summit is marked by two distinct cairns, the one to the east, or one nearer to Ben Lugmore is the highest by four metres. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/43/comment/4803/
