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 99th highest in Ireland.

In my opinion, the Corranabinnia horseshoe is one of the most challenging hikes in the west of Ireland, with in excess of 1000m height gain over about 14km. The ascent to Bengorm (582m) is gradual but the soft peaty underfoot conditions make it a real slog. The final climb up to the trig station at the summit of Corranabinnia is also challenging. The arete ridge between Corranbinnia main top and SW top is not as intimidating as I expected - but maybe that's because the cloud didn't allow us to see the full extent of the drops on either side! The photo shown is looking across the ridge to the SW top and believe it or not is taken in the same direction and not far to the left as milo's photo on the same mountain!
