A little gem
by Colin Murphy  28 May 2012
Overshadowed by its bigger brother, but a small gem in its own right, Bengorm NW is steeply sided with a rocky summit, marked by several boulders. It is difficult to be precise about the highest point, but it is likely to be found towards the SE end of the summit area, marked by a large boulder.
