The col of Maumahoge is to the soth-west of Cnoc na hUilleann, and though more frequently approached from the south, the col can be handily accessed from the north.
We left the tarmac road in the Glenglosh valley at point 879 557 A, just where a green road ascended gently south into the valley, passing one of the Glenglosh holiday cottages. Just before this green road petered out we climbed directly to the rocky col. Binn Idir An Da Log towers to the SE, but we turned north-west (right) up the rocky slopes. The hitherto unseen lough nestling beneath Binn Idir An Da Log slowly comes into view. A minor cairn en route could confuse in mist. Great views at summit marred by a nest of flying ants hovering just above the cairn. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/260/comment/2834/
