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.

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.
