Climbers who follow the Faha Ridge and stick to the crest will eventually emerge on the summit ridge near the grassy top of this peak. In clear conditions it commands a spectacular view of the Faha Ridge.   Cnoc Bréanainn (mullach thuaidh) is the second highest mountain in the Brandon Group area and the 15th highest in Ireland.

A corrected summit position
Short Summary created by Peter Walker, jackill  17 Mar 2016
The most scenic route to the summit of Brandon North, the Pilgrim's path, starts at the carpark under the Faha Grotto( Q493 119 A) on the hillside overlooking Cloghane. There is room for 8-10 cars.

Walk up the clear path past the grotto and on until you cross over a wire fence. At this point you will be near the crest of the ridge. Continue on the well marked lower path which will lead you around into the valley under the Faha ridge overlooking the Paternoster lakes.

At the top of this valley ,cross the stream, you will see a rocky, eroded, track leading up at the left-hand side, onto the col from where you turn right and walk approx 750 mtrs to the summit of Brandon.
The summit was surveyed in 2012 and it was determined the highest point is at the coordinates given here and not at spot height 891 as marked on the 1:50000 OS map. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/15/comment/4775/
