Bulky Sheeffrys summit
Short Summary created by Peter Walker  13 Nov 2018
Tievnabinnia is the easternmost of the higher Sheeffry Hills, a distinctly bulky eminence where gently grassy upper slopes contrast with a series of steep corries to both north and south of its generally east-west ridgeline. Said ridgeline declines gradually to the east over the lesser summits of the East Top and Tawny Rower, while rises slightly to the west to the higher tops of Tievummera and Barrclashcame. The whole range provides fine open walking, somewhat quieter than many other groups in the West.

Unless committed to a full traverse, the ascent will generally be made from the road to the south, approaches from the north being much more remote and untracked. From the road two ridges rise up to the summit, the combination being known as the Glenlaur Horseshoe. For the southern ridge, start at (L92123 68612 A) and proceed upwards over Tawnyard and the South-East Top. For the northern arm, start from (L91990 69717 B), wend your way up Tawny Rower before continuing over the East Top to the main summit.

The prospects from the ridge are excellent and extensive, with Croagh Patrick, Ben Gorm and the Devilsmother/Maumtrasna all being prominently displayed. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/82/comment/4842/
