by gerrym  22 Aug 2004 Tievnabinnia is a big hill with steeply curving northern slopes and big ridges and a massive corrie to the south. From the col with Tievnabinnia East it is a short steep climb onto the extensive summit plateau, with the impressive sight and sound of the Glenlaur River dropping down the east face out of the brooding mist covering the top. A bearing of 288 will take you in the direction of the summit over gently rising ground, as near the top more eroded and stoney but good walking. I was fortunate that the weather lifted and I was able to fully appreciate the spectacular viewsfrom the top. North to Achill and Crogh Patrick, east to the East Top and Tawny Rower and west to the higher Sheefrys of Tievummera and Clashcarne with the deep corrie containing Lough Brawn (see pic). The most impressive view is south with the big ridge sweeping down into Glenummera with Ben Gorm on the other side of the valley and beyond to the 12 Bens, Mamturks and the big plateau of the Partry Mountains. From the top there is a vsible track gently dropping to follow along the steep northern slopes - could take bearing on little loughs half way along to Tievummera in very poor weather. See Tievummera for next part of traverse.

Picture: Summit cairn
by Colin Murphy  4 Sep 2009 Approached from Tawnyard Mt, which was a 3.5km walk, a steep grassy slope starting at L888692 (Point A) and a climb of about 150m eventually giving way to a long, broad and mostly gentle approach across a stony terrain then long grasses. Pretty dull top, broad enough for a hurling match, marked by cairn, but great views of Croagh Patrick on a clear day.
Point A: L888 692

by weedavie  24 Jul 2003 None of the summits on the ridge are named on the OS - but I've visited the grid references.

by milo  3 Jan 2005 14 (mostly Ramblers) visited this top while traversing Sheffrys e-w from near Tawnyard to Doo Lough on New Year's Eve. The impressive cascade was doubtless related to the New Year's weather. Top naming is interesting hereabouts. Whence was it obtained?

by weedavie  10 Aug 2007 I was on this hill early in my MV days and noted "None of the summits on the ridge are named on the OS - but I've visited the grid references". This comment earned me 1 star, which seemed harsh. I'd also put a full report on the walk on Barrclashcame. Now I'd not totally worked out the use of the various settings on MV (ticking a hill to add to your list but necessarily leaving a comment, for instance) so partly I was just filling in the form. But I think I was also making a point. Is 30 metres enough definition to give an individual summit - shouldn't it be 50 or 100? I went to the summit just for completeness, the spot height (no name) on the map was an obvious turning point.

As for the hill well, as a hill it's dull, but has views to keep you singing the whole way along the ridge. Without the views it'd be a challenge for map and compass and not much else. However it achieves 93% on the overall rating (before I make my contribution) which is ahead of Mweelrea's 91% and suggests some MV contributors should come over and spend some time in the White Mounth. Or maybe work out the difference between view and aesthetic and get their ideas of challenge under control.

I stand by my original comment, this was a visit to a grid reference which has acquired an enormous name. As Milo asked, where did it come from?

Extended Glenlaur Horseshoe
by alanjking  7 Sep 2010 Take the N59 from Westport towards Leenaun. At about six miles turn right as signed for Drummin passing through the village and on to Sheeffry Bridge. Park on the wide shoulder (3 - 4 car spaces) on the right side just past where the “cross country” or alternative Western Way meets with the road (915693 (Point B)). Walking westward along a barely discernable track to a gate is the way to the open mountain.
Start climbing or continue and save the first climb for the first Col on your left. From there it is a sustained climb to the top of the plateau. Once on the plateau follow the curvature west until you reach the trig point at spot height 762 (Tievenabinnia). From here there are fabulous views to be savoured. Heading back east to spot height 742 marked by a kern opens up a wonderful panorama. The nearby peat hags provide shelter for a rest regardless of the direction the wind. From here, head south east across the plateau to the Col at approx 890:704. Be careful descending as it could prove slippy in certain conditions. Once across the Col head north east and follow the shoulder to the next Col at Lough Lugacolliwee.
After admiring the lake head directly south picking up and following the line of the “cross country” Western Way. The OSI markings in this case hide the fact that there is another small tributary of the Glenlaur following the same route. Keep to the west side of this tributary to stay away from steep gullies and barbed wire. Where it meets the Glenlaur is crossable in dry weather and a marker post on the opposite side indicates where a wooden step-over facilitates crossing the wire fence adjacent to the opposite bank. In wet weather it may be necessary to follow the Glenlaur upstream to find a crossing point and to avoid the wire fence. Once over the Glenlaur and fence it is only a short distance to the parking spot.
The walk should take about 4/5 hours and is about 16 kms. Because of their shape the Seeffry’s usually involve having to undertake a car split unless you wish to come back the same route. This extended horseshoe route takes in most of the ridge and only necessitates the use of one car.
Point B: L915 693
