Picture: Four intrepid adventurers scale the dizzying heights of the summit
Approach from south via Bengower/Benbreen or Benlettery/Bengower/Benbreen. From Benbreen it is almost a lazy stroll to this top, relative to other tops in this area. Head NNW for 500m, with a gentle ascent of under 30m. From Benbreen to top will take about ten minutes. The summit is strewn with rocks and boulders and marked by a small cairn.

Binn Bhraoin’s Central Top A (L78134 51889) was accessed via the main summit (See Binn Bhraoin for second leg of walk) by the nine walkers in the Mid-Ulster Walking Club undertaking a west-east crossing of the Glencoaghan Horseshoe walk. GPS reading on the Top was 684m a mere two metres less than indicated on the Harvey map of Connemara, which I was using on the day. The Harvey map is in many ways excellent and superior to the OS 1:50000 maps which most of us might use otherwise. The difficulty, or at least the problem you have to get around, is remembering that it is produced on a 1:30000 scale and with contours at 15m intervals. Despite this, using the 1:30000 map is not an insurmountable problem although I do need to get a bit more practice since diligence in map reading is often not what it should be when you vest such responsibilities with the Walk-Leader. The walk from the main summit to the Central Top is over solid ground, mostly large rock slabs and should offer little difficulty to any walker. The Top, perhaps, suffers from it's central location in that it is most likely seen as a waypoint between the main summit to the south and the North Top to the east which marks the end of the summit ridge. This and the fact that the views from it are similar to those described from the main summit may explain why there has been little comment on it here to date.

Once you reach the Bhraoin ridge, it is a pleasant trek in either direction - plenty of time to absorb the 360 mountainviews Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/137/comment/2206/
