To the north of Benbrack is Kylemore Abbey with a convenient car-park. Going south from there via a path that leaves the road at around L 75185 58057 starB it is straightforward, if hard work, to reach Benbaun, 477m. The picture shows the approach to Benbrack from Benbaun, via a broad ridge. Benbrack is to the right of the picture. Highest on the skyline is another Benbaun or Binn Bhan. 729m. To its right is Benfree, (Binn Fraoigh) 638m Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/308/comment/697/
