Picture: Some Maamturks From Culog
 
Nice views of main Maamturks

Arrived at Culog after a tricky descent from Binn Idir an Da Log, a little too steep to be comfortable walking, but doable. I assumed Culog would be little frequented, but there are traces of a path along the long summit area, so maybe not. Great views to the main Maamturks from this minor summit, also down into Glenglosh, Maam Valley, and so on. Photo shows Binn Idir an Da Log SE top (centre) and Binn Idir an Da Log (right) from Culog. Viewed from around Culog, it seems the name Binn Idir etc. must surely refer to the SE top, which is genuinely "between two hollows", unlike its parent peak.
From Culog the horseshoe walk continues onto Knocknagur, and then steeply down through many crags and crossing a fence onto the very, very quiet road. Despite the modest heights of these hills, this return leg of the Gleann Fada (aka Failmore) horseshoe is pretty hard walking. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/675/comment/18324/
