This route follows what I call the 3rd stage of the Maamturks Walk. (so called as it was the third section of the Maamturks that I completed using my own access and exit points). Using a handy access point in the Glenlosh Valley the route initially follows a track before heading up wet slopes to the col between Binn idir an dà Log and Cnoc na hUilleann. From here the route follows the Maamturks Walk from summit to summit. After Maamturkmore (Binn Bhan) my route leaves the Maamturks Walk to descend to the road and back to the car. A tough and demanding walk that requires care in places due to steep, wet or rocky underfoot conditions. The valley is privately owned but both times I spoke to the owners they were happy to allow me to park. (they live in the last house at the end of the valley).
