Access from waterville not easy
by markmjcampion 2 May 2015
Sorry, think I must have deleted the photos from this hike. Anyway, the track from Waterville that you will see on the 83 OS map doesn't really exist. I accessed the hill from A (V512 649) or thereabouts. Quite messy at first with fences and undergrowth but an easy ridge to follow thereafter. I left in the evening and brought along my tent hoping to camp on Mullaghbeg before returning via Cahernageeha and Farraniaragh. Unfortunately the weather turned overnight and as I had forgotten my waterproofs I decided to dash down the 4x4 road instead and hitch a lift back to my car.

Long trek to summit
by Fergalh 9 Jan 2023
Parked North east of Caherdaniel at B (Q555 060) and head up road north east until tarmac ran out. Followed the zigzag track until C (V555 623) and turned right. At D (V562 630) turned north west for short walk over heather to Mullaghbeg. From here a descent and rise with a few fences crossed leads to the unmarked summit of Beenrour. The cole between Mullaghabeg and Beenrour can be wet in places. The trek is worth it for the extensive views overlooking Waterville. Returned the same way and than onto Cahernageeha and Farraniaragh. Small hills but great views, well worth the effort. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/745/comment/23797/
