Picture: Slievanea NE Top from Slievenalecka
Slieveanea NE Top is the highpoint of a picturesque set of steep, grassy hills to the E of Brandon.The area to the S has a remote feel to it - the lakes in this area are a joy. While these hills are grassy on top and to the S, their N facing slopes are a different matter being home to much rock, cliffs and coums. The extent of them is only at times glimpsed from the road to the N as its contours don't allow for sweeping vistas. Views from the top are great incl. Brandon, local coums + lochs, and Beenoskee to the E.

SW. Start at the Conor pass's large car park Conr Ps (Q49040 05573).
Follow a distinct track E for 200m, leaving track as it swings sharply S - continue E uphill, skirting cliffs to your left. The route is gradual and without any great difficulty as long as you avoid these steep cliffs, first taking in Slievanea before dropping slightly ahead of an easy stroll to the summit. 1 hr+

W. Park at Lg Doon (Q50260 06107) - ample room. Walk/scramble up through the rocks keeping Pedlar's Lake on your right. TIt gets steeper after this and it's a good slog on firm ground to get to the summit of Slievanea. Thereafter it's easy. Allow 1.25 hrs

N. Park discreetly somewhere between KlMor Lg (Q52245 08884) and A (Q51806 08329). Leave the road at the latter point and heading S on reasonable but increasingly steep ground will have you on the summit in an hour.

NE. Park at BlDuff Grv (Q54076 10096) and head first for Beenbo before following the ridge to the W.

Notable tracks incl. track/3528 and track/2878.

From Coumanares summit looking across the high valley towards the Reeks.
Below is Loch Barrot in the foreground with Loch Meain and An Loch Dubh behind.
The broad shoulder of Gowlane sweeps down from the left toward Bearna na Gaoithe (yes it is windy).
Just left of centre is Banoge North reached by a steep climb up from the gap and then the long easy ridge over to Knockmulanane.The Iveragh Mountains are visible in the haze across the bay.
The summit of Coumanare is marked by a small cairn of stones. The sense of isolation you feel in the valley of the Coumanare lochs really is splendid - apart from a few old tracks and sheep folds it has largely escaped mans influence. Linkback:

The approach to the NE Top is along a broad, grassy shoulder. Very soon the view to the NE (on right) beings to open up. The Coumanare Lakes are visible on the plateau below, but what really draws the attention forward is the flight of serried tops that rims the NW-facing corries. Slievenalecka, Slievenagower, Beenbo (Gob an Iolair), Binn an Tuair, and even An Com Ban are all visible from here. And then, slightly to the right, the dominating triangle of Beenoskee. In this remote upland area, if you like solitude, you are well served! Linkback:

Steep and short ascent from the north
by mr_boggs 27 Mar 2021
I've just returned from a week on the gorgeous Dingle Peninsula, staying in a house at the bottom of the Conor Pass, with the north face of Slievanea NE top beckoning. If you want a more challenging way to start a walk in these Cnetral Dingle mountains you could try this. I started this walk from our farmhouse, crossing the road by the large sign you'll see as you wind uphill. The gate by the sign (B (Q518 084))leads up through not-too-boggy ground - it's a constant uphill pull up the south face, following a ruined wall for some of the way. It's steep but steady and will probably take around 45 minutes to get to the summit, which seemed to stay far clearer of clouds than the nearby Brandon group; I didn't see the top of Brandon itself once in 8 days. Great view east and south east from there, but I enjoyed the views behind too as I climbed - the lovely vista of brandon Bay surrounded by mountains. It's all easy walking once you're up on the tops. I trotted over to Slievanea and got picked up from the car park at the top of the Conor Pass but would have loved to head east to easily pick off the other summits - a walk for the future. Linkback:

Binn na Naomh
by aidand 3 Mar 2023
I have often puzzled over the name appended to this fine peak. Referring to it as the NE Top of its much lower neighbour didn't seem right. East Wests new 1:25,000 scale map of Dingle West has the name Binn na Naomh (the Saints peak) for this peak. Can we please update Mountainviews with this name. Linkback:
