Ó Cíobháin gives Beann, 'peak', as the true name of this mountain. Apparently the name Bruach na Binne really belonged to a feature a few miles to the W overlooking the Bridia Valley and was mistakenly applied to this peak by the sappers.   Broaghnabinnia is the 82nd highest place in Ireland. Broaghnabinnia is the most northerly summit in the Dunkerron Mountains area.

Poor old Broaghnabinnia. Described by David Herman [Hill Walkers Kerry] as ".. not the most enticing of mountains .." whose summit is ".. a tiny plain of boggy grass .. disappointing .."

Can't say I entirely agree. This summit has some dramatic slopes particularly on the northern side. Even this picture of the southern side shows cliffs and steepness.

The picture was taken one November from around Knocknabreda. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/80/comment/2558/

No access to Lough Reagh
by odonogc  18 Sep 2020
We went to the Black Valley today (17/09/2020) to hike in via Lough Reagh, but there are new signs on the gate saying "Private Property, Keep Out".

We weren't able to poke out an alternative way to access the lake so we climbed from the west instead, via the Kerry Way.

Just be aware of this if you're planning to tackle the hills on the southern side of the Black Valley. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/80/comment/20890/

I climbed this as part of a walk taking in Stumpa Duloigh as well on March 19 this year. Following suggestions on this site and from guide books, I decided to head straight up the steep face above Lough Reagh...Bl**dy Hell!...it was tough or I am not as fit or both! After a particularly difficult piece, i had to sit down and make sure i kept my breakfast in...However, I survived and managed to complete the route to Stompa. The earlier plan of including Stumpa West Top was shelved due to wind and rain and the condition of the party (me...). Altogether, 6 hours for 10k and 1003 metres of ascent.

Fab mountain without the scramble
by sandman  5 Jul 2012
Park at V82180 81301 starA walk back over bridge enter farm gate on right and when you reach sheep pens keep left and follow rough track at side of Lough Reagh to end continue on to point V81264 80627 starB from this point continue on for app 150meters and take a bearing for the summit picking your way thru the boulders. A truly fantastic mountain and by using this route you do not need to scramble but be advised the summit is just a farm fence with blue rope attached.......time easy up and down four hours Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/80/comment/14707/

Great looking, summit disappoints.
by Colin Murphy  30 Sep 2015
This summit is as tough as they come - there isn't any easy way up. It is unrelentingly steep up to about 500m. The views are magnificent and there are many impressive precipitous drops and rock formations. Unfortunately the summit doesn't live up to the promise of the climb. Once you get to the E-W summit area the terrain is just a dull, grassy slog with barely a fist-sized stone to break the monotony. The views in all directions are great however. It is a mountain that looks far more impressive from a distance, as can be seen from the shot, taken from the upper slopes of Mothaillín. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/80/comment/18336/
