This peak is unnamed on the OSI Discovery map, surely one of the highest peaks to lack a name. The name Corranabinnnia is found in walking guides. It is also named Cushcamcarragh (from Ir. Coiscéim Charrach, 'rocky step') in atlases. This name also appears on Bald's map of Mayo (1830), while the name Curranabinna is applied to the cirque north of the peak. Walks: for a route taking in Bengorm, Corranabinnia and Glennamong, see Whilde & Simms, New Irish Walk Guide - West and North, 72-73.   Corranabinnia is the third highest mountain in the North Mayo area and the 101st highest in Ireland.

Parking a car at Glendahurk Bridge, and using the connecting bog tracks, an excellent anticlockwise circuit can be completed by climbing Bengorm first and then crossing over to Corranabinnia. The narrow ridge to Corrannabinia SW is short and pleasent, however please note that it contains a rock step which can be turned on the left(E) side and involves some exposure and easy scrambling. The return to the car was achieved by descending south by the (potentially) boggy ridge to the forestry track. It took 6.5 hours, inclusive of much lingering due to the fine day and views in all directions. The route gives a magnificant perspective of what the Nephins offer most; a sense of space. Owenduff valley to the north is particularly vast and attractive. Had the pleasure of once crossing it from east to west after a wet spell; all I was missing was a pair of webbed feet.
