This top is part of the ridge from the brilliant viewing point of Binbane towards the bulk of the Bluestacks. As of 2007 there is absolutely no path along this ridge. The going is wet and rough underfoot.

Access can be had from the road at G84088893 A over rough ground beside a forest.

Like Binbane the top has excellent views. The photo shows the beach at Loughros with the complex peak of Slievetooey above it on and the summit of Common Mountain the peak shown to the left skyline. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/663/comment/2851/

Slow going but worth it!

Started this round of the two Binbane's and their neighbour Cloghmeen Hill by parking at approx G825884 B at an old house on the right. Followed the boreen NE to junction where Bluestack Way diverges, turning right uphill along a slightly poorer but nonetheless excellent surface - this road is only one car wide so driving on here would cause parking and meeting farm traffic issues!. At the end of this surfaced road the BW turns right and uphil,and more importantly is now cross-country. You will definitely need good boots and gaiters from here on, I can testify to that! I drifted off the way aiming for the col between BBNET and CH. The going is slow, soggy and rough underfoot, don't expect to be fast. I went to the Grid ref given by Simon but one could choose adjacent peat hags which look of si ilar height but may not last as long as the outcrop chosen. From here you'll hopefully see Binbane's trig to the SW. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/663/comment/15191/
