Track Rating ..
[RWD version 1 ] This walk starts from the access road to a small forest off the N59. Go through a gate and park near a second gate and also a bridge which is part of a green road going west.

The magnificent small humpbacked Drehidanookera Bridge at the start.

Follow the green road west to a modern road with houses on it. While we found the owners there very amenable to our smallish group we recommend that you talk to anyone that you see. Don't bring dogs. Continue walking and eventually you will come to a track through a second forest. We explored this track and found that it was extremely waterlogged, so it is probably best to turn right at this point and head uphill towards Binn Mh贸r West beside the stream (Abhainn Bh煤i).

Binn Mh贸r West

From Binn Mh贸r West there are fine views over the second section of the Maamturks to the west. Essentially the first section of the walk is a series of minor rocky knolls.
After Binn Mh贸r itself you come to Binn Mh贸r NE. This was marked on MV as having 15m prominence and thus just scrapping in as a Vandeleur-Lynam. We measured it and found it has 16.2m prominence however it's position is slightly different from what was understood earlier.

Binn Mh贸r North East Top, now a confirmed Vandeleur-Lynam in the foreground. Our measurements indicate that this is the correct position as opposed to the previous point further east where the two walkers are.

After the many Binn Mh贸r tops you will see Mullach Glas which is easy enough to reach.

Behind the small cairn on Binn Mh贸r East is the definitelly grassy Mullach Glas.

The descent from Mullach Glas is steep and difficult. The ascent up Corc贸g is relatively easy by following a fence.

We measured the position of the highest exposed rock of Corc贸g and found it to be 610.077m (2001.565 feet for the imperial measure fans).

Descending off Corc贸g (apologies, track recording stopped) is straightforward with care.
The inspiration for this walk was from track/2941/ by member Onzy.
