This name seems properly to apply to a group of crags overlooking Lough Barra and has also been applied to the townland in which they are situated.   Na Beanna Gorma is the 342nd highest place in Ireland.

Slieve Snaght Circuit
by Onzy  3 Nov 2013
Followed Harry Goodman's 5-top route beginning with Bingorms and taking in Drumnalifferny Mtn., Slieve Snaght, Crockfadda NE and Crockfadda itself. I did a bit of cutting and pasting of Harry's comments and brought them with me. The result was a great walk, starting from the R254 north of Lough Barra, ascending by the Scardangal Burn and descending by Sruhannacree.

Needs care in a few places; the climb northerly up Scardangle, the descent from Slieve Snaght and the final descent are all steep and with some broken ground, but nothing impossible.

Had a few hiccups with the GPS, hence Google will read the resulting file, but nothing else, including this site, will. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/314/comment/15248/
