Binn Bhraoin (Benbreen) North Top is the summit nearer and to the left in this picture taken from near the summit of Muckanaght. It is part of the long twisting and central ridge of the Bens, which started at Benlettery and continues through Bengower, various tops of Benbreen and then Bencollaghduff. David Herman [Hillwalkers Connemara and Mayo] said of Benbreen that it “.. this a magical eyrie. Right at the centre of the Bens and with towering peaks in all directions, it is a great place to marvel at the majesty of this superb range ..”

The glittering river is the Owenglin, making a natural and meandering edge to the somewhat straight edges of the forestry plantation. On the skyline, from the right is part of Benglenisky, then the hump of Benlettery (577m, the southernmost Ben) and then Bengower (664m) partly hidden by Benbreen.
