Short, steep, and simple
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy,  30 Mar 2012
Approaching from the east along the R200, parking for several cars may be found on the right hand side in the Bellavally Gap at point H116 245 A. 100m further along is a short track heading south past a concrete farm enclosure. Leave the track after 100m where it swings east, and continue south crossing open moorland. Continue directly south for 500m when the ground begins to rise steeply, but is still walkable, and changes from heather/reeds to mostly grass, firm underfoot. A further 500m will take you directly to the summit of Benbrack NE Top (496m), which is marked by a cairn. Time from car, 30-40 minutes depending on conditions.
