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.

This summit ,while 5 metres lower than than the highest in the range,remote Slieve Car, is the high point of the western Nephinbeg ridge. It commands splendid views, particularly south over Clew Bay and west toward Achill (lower photo) It also forms part of a fine 20km. ridge circuit including BenGorm and Glenamong.
This took almost 8 hours using 2 cars, one left in a large recessed entrance at L956 985 B and finishing in the carpark at the start of the Bangor Trail. Without cars a somewhat longer variant could be done from Traenlur YH, using the ford at F 947 024 C. Top photo shows the view west from near Corranabinnia main top showing the ridge to the SW top.
