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 place in Ireland.

After summitting Mullaghnattin and heading SW to point 592, our next objective was Beann. We didn't summit the spot height 692 but kept to its left, all the time climbing so as to finish up on the ridge top N of Beann. Then we followed the fence the short relatively level grade to the Beann top. We actually went to the end of this and passed by the true summit by some 100 - 200 metres as it isn't immediately clear which little crest is the highest. Anyway once here you can continue to follow the fence S to a col before a little push up Beann S Top... Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/75/comment/4428/
