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. 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 Mhór West beside the stream (Abhainn Bhúi). From Binn Mhór 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 Mhór itself you come to Binn Mhór 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. After the many Binn Mhór tops you will see Mullach Glas which is easy enough to reach. The descent from Mullach Glas is steep and difficult. The ascent up Corcóg is relatively easy by following a fence. Descending off Corcóg (apologies, track recording stopped) is straightforward with care. The inspiration for this walk was from track/2941/ by member Onzy.
