Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  15 Aug 2012
Park off the R254 B9331412721 A just S of a bridge over the Sruhancrolee stream. Keeping it on the left, follow the the stream NW over rough and marshy ground and then the Scardangal Burn coming down from the N side of the valley B932131 B. Follow the Burn and, as it swings N, climb up steeply over rock, heather and grass covered ground past some small waterfalls. As the slope levels out in the col between Slieve Snaght and Bingorms continue up the valley to the Burn's outflow from L. Slievesnaght. Go around the E (right) bank of the lough and at it's end climb up the grassy slope NE to the col between Drumnalifferny Mt. and Bingorms B933152 C and then N to the summit on a broad, flat, rock covered plateau, passing a small tarn on the way. Return by way of ascent or alternatively, once back down at the col below Bingorms, continue up S to the broad flat ridge and follow it along to Bingorms summit cairn. Drop down SW over a rock slabbed surface to rejoin the Scardangal Burn at B930140 D but note that in wet and slippery conditions this surface would be difficult and best avoided. Turn left and follow down to the start. It may be of interest to note that as of July 2012 at least two mv members have at different times taken GPS readings for this top as 607m and 606m respectively. Perhaps after further independent checks a new 600m top may emerge ! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/283/comment/5043/
