Save it for a sunny day to enjoy the views !!
by David-Guenot  27 Nov 2014
Climbed this hill on a late afternoon in July 2014, on my way back from Moylenanav and Crockastroller. Parked at C152306 E and headed on up for Bingrania (pt. 246m). The track crosses some peat fields and peters out as the ground rises. I made my way straight up through high fern, before the ground steepened and became grassy, forming like a giant staircase !! The last part of the ascent was quite gentle and the descent to the col with Croaghmore was very quick. There is a pond at the col, with a few small stumps peering here and there above the water, which look a bit like standing stones, which gave me the impression of discovering a sacred place or something !! From there, it is a short ascent to the top. As Harry Goodman said, the views are extensive from all sides. Only to the S is the horizon barred by Loughsalt Mountain -the view is really nice, though. Really worth the (easy) ascent, especially if you use the track described by Harry Goodman. I came down this way to the main road, which I then had to follow for about 15 minutes to get back to the car. As I said in a comment I posted a few months ago on the General Forum, I was a bit disappointed that nature was a bit spoiled with litter here and there on the way (including broken glass), still the views from the top are really beautiful. Do not miss it if in the area !! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1175/comment/17754/
