Benbaun via Knockpasheemore

Descent: 799m

Places: Start at L81286 56902, Binn Charrach, Binn Bhán, end at Start

A relatively easy way up to Benbaun, the Co Galway high point, although it is a steep pull up to Binn Charrach/Knockpasheemore. The walk along the long, broad ridge from there is easy until a final steep section again up the scree covered top of Benbaun. The views were breathtaking in all directions, with Lough Inagh, the Maamturks, and the rest of the Bens being particularly eye-catching.

Panorama showing Lough Inagh in the centre, the Maamturks on the far side of the valley, and Bencorr with its subsidiary tops.

Dramatic mountains in every direction.
