Here goes my first contribution to MV.

From Cornamona on the R345 take a local road north west and after about 1km park in a lay by at a single track road (M 031 536 A).

I enquired about access and a local farmer suggested that I go through the gate lower down the road (near a modern house) and follow the stony/grassy track till reaching a gate and stream (M 018 544 B), a 1 hour walk with a full rucksack.

The track was used in times gone by to cart turf down the hill, donkeys providing the pulling power. The old turf cutting fields are in evidence further up the hill, they are a challenge to cross, the cut-away areas having flooded and walls eroded.

At the old gate you have a choice of taking the boggy path ahead and ‘navigate’ through the old turf fields (have been there - I would not recommend it) or push up north alongside the stream over an old earthen wall. Both routes lead to a nearby hill called Teeranea (339m). At its top you can use a fence as guide, first W to an adjacent hill at 406m then NW all the way to the top at 424m.

The boggy terrain will slow you down somewhat but you will be rewarded with beautiful views over Lough Corrib to E and Lough Mask to NE. On the way up approaching Teeranea, look E to enjoy neighbouring Benlevy in full splendor. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/722/comment/6751/
