Summary for Benchoona East Top (Binn Chuanna soir barr): A short hop from the main summit.

Picture: Astounding panoramas when the mist clears.
This is usually done in conjunction with Benchoona itself. One approach is to start at the Lettergesh beach car park at LtrGesh (L737 631) D and follow the uphill road and track up towards Benchoona, which eventually peters out. The terrain is then quite steep, initially grassy and increasingly rocky as one ascends. Upon reaching the rocky summit of Benchoona, the East top is a mere 500m east around the small Benchoona Lough, with just 20m or so ascent.
