Climbed to Benbrack -18.05.2008 on another fine clear day. Start point was at L75722 58267 C, place to park a vehicle without obstruction. You have to walk on the road a short distance before entering a pass which leads to a lime kiln. Headed up to L76588 56749 D at Maolan, this is a steep enough haul, the views back towards Kylemore Abbey are something else!!!. On to Benbrack and enjoyed a snack beside a small, crystal clear lough. The surrounding scenery is very well described in gerrym's comment of 25/10/06 - awe inspiring.
