The element búc seems to be related to the dialect word buc, meaning 'point, summit' found in Southern France in mountain names, e.g. Buc Pointu. Walks: for a walk taking in Búcán and Binn Bhán (Maumturkmore), see Paddy Dillon, Connemara, 92-97.
Búcán is the 419th highest place in Ireland. Búcán is the most northerly summit and also the most westerly in the Maamturks area. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/358/
