This peak is unnamed on the OSI Discovery map, surely one of the highest peaks to lack a name. The name Corranabinnnia is found in walking guides. It is also named Cushcamcarragh (from Ir. Coiscéim Charrach, 'rocky step') in atlases. This name also appears on Bald's map of Mayo (1830), while the name Curranabinna is applied to the cirque north of the peak. Walks: for a route taking in Bengorm, Corranabinnia and Glennamong, see Whilde & Simms, New Irish Walk Guide - West and North, 72-73.   Corranabinnia is the third highest mountain in the North Mayo area and the 101st highest in Ireland.

High Point of Mayo's Best Ridge
Short Summary created by Onzy  6 Oct 2014
Corranabinnia is situated at the northern end of the Glendahurk valley and is the apex and the highest point of the Glendahurk Horseshoe. It's a highly rated peak, particularly noted for the fine ridge which extends south west from its summit to that of its SW top. There are staggering views of Clew Bay on a good day.

Corranabinnia is remote from roads and consequently there are a relatively small number of practical routes and these all involve other peaks.

The most obvious is the circuit of Glendahurk Valley, taking in Bengorm, its NW top and the 2 Corranabinnias and making use of the raking spur south of Corranabinnia SW top. The horseshoe can be done in either direction, from starting points at either L91061 97962 A or about 300m further south, where there is a stile on the right. At 15k with an ascent of c.1,000m, the circuit should take about 6 hours.

A more ambitious circuit starting further east in the vicinity of Srahmore and centering on the Glennamong Valley is also possible. This would take in Tirkslieve, both Glennamongs, Corranabinnia and the two Bengorms, before descending to the road near Furness. The option of a short extension to Corranabinnia SW top is also possible. This is a walk of 20k+, with some road walking and will take about 8 hours.
