I approached the SW top from Corranabinnia itself and it is a quick drop down to the col. The route to the summit of the SW top looks pretty difficult - it can be if you want but there are easy paths just below the rocks at its crest. Nevertheless this was an exciting diversion from the walking for most of the day, hands are needed and if you want the exposure you can have it with big drops, especially to the N into the corrie containing Corranabinna Lough. As Simons pic shows there are fantastic views, with the great contrast of the lowlands and the Nephins rising steeply from the bogs. There are again stunning views from the broad level top, with the expanses of water dotted with islands drawing the eye. There is a long and gradual ridge heading off to the S along Glendahurk which would be a good alternative approach . I retraced my steps, which was fun again, back to the top of Corranabinnia where i had left my rucksack and then headed along the ridge to Ben Gorm.
