A round taking in Bencullagh, Maumonght and Maumonght SW Top, starting from L739514, where there is a single parking place on the verge.

Easy and quick way to get the two loose VLs at the western edge of the 12 Bens. Forgot to turn on GPS until about 1k north of the starting point, skewing the stats. Overall its a 2.5 hour walk with an ascent of 625m and a total length of 8k.
