A superb viewpoint

Binbane/Binn Bhan gives terrific views for not a great deal of effort, ideal if you only have a couple of hours spare. From the Frosses to Glenties road a driveable boreen leads up from 840849 B towards the hill. A car can be squeezed in by a gate at 843859 C (take care not to block access) or there is more space up the gravel road at the entrance to the forest. From the gate a track leads to a ruined farmhouse and above this a gate and stile lead to the open hill. Steep but not too rough ground leads up alongside a fence to the summit. As it's the last summit in the range the view is extensive, stretching from Errigal to North Mayo. Either return the same way or cross rough pathless ground to the East Summit, with a nice little arete to scramble up if that's your thing. The peaty lump SE of the cairn is the true summit. More pathless ground leads down to the NE corner of the wood (the fence is most easily crossed right next to the wood), then down past a ruined cottage with two trees growing in its roof to join the Bluestacks Way at a surfaced track. Turn right to return to the car. 4km, 300m ascent. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/610/comment/20075/
