A fine top!
by paddyhillsbagger  22 Jul 2011
Climbed Benbrack NE Top after Benbeg leaving the car in Bellavally Gap. A fairly short boggy lead in followed by an even shorter steep grassy climb leads to an expansive heathery top with a small cairn. Fine views of Benbeg and Cuilcagh as well as the Cavan lakes. I chose to walk on to Benbrack from here as the weather was fine. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/469/comment/6421/
