Beann (approximate pronunciation: byown, rhyming with down) is most often climbed in combination with Mullaghanattin as part of a circuit of the Pocket. Despite being unnamed on the Discovery map, it is nearly as high as its neighbour and has several satellites of its own. The ridge extending to the south-west towards Finnararagh is among the most wild and solitary routes in Ireland.   Beann is the 76th highest summit in Ireland.

Beann on the right as seen from the lower slopes of Coomura mountain. The Reeks in the background. The photograph also shows to some extent the "rough, confusing, boggy land" that Simon describes in his description of the walk from Knocknagantee to Coomura Mtn on the Coomura Mtn comment page.
