A companion hill to Drung
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  4 Jun 2013
This top is normally done in conjunction with others on the Glenbeigh Horseshoe, and it is almost impossible to access in isolation. The simples approach is via Drung Hill.
Heading west from Glenbeigh turn off the N70 V630 890 A and follow the narrow road for about 1km to point V622 888 B, where there is room to park a couple of cars on the roadside.
Walk west for 100 meters and follow the waymarked way sign up a track left at V61p 887.
Continue through several gates until you reach V607 887 C. Cross the fence and head straight up Drung Hill, which has steep slopes, but the terrain is naturally 'stepped', which helps the ascent. When you reach the summit of Drung Hill, head directly SW for 1km over solid, grassy terrain, and you will reach Beenmore in about 20 minutes, the summit being marked by a cairn.
