Binn idir an dá Log (Maumturks) 

Binn idir an dá Log (Height between two hollows) is the highest point on the rugged Maumturk mountains.


Binn idir an dá Log (Height between two hollows) is the highest point on the rugged Maumturk mountains. A fantastic experience of pure and exposed Connemara wilderness that Praeger describes as a ‘glorious day’s walking’. A mountain marked with crags and quartz with some excellent views of the Maam and Inagh Valleys.

This walk follows the way marked trail of the Western Way to Mauméan, an ancient and sacred pass with an alter set into the rock face. The walk then starts to rise sharply to Binn Chaonaigh (633m) with irregular jagged tracks and scree, Binn Mhairg is a short distance away that imposes itself upon the Maam valley below. The walk joins back onto the ridge lines westward through to Binn idir an dá Log with some fabulous views of cliffs and valleys on both sides.

The walk then follows a scree slope towards Loch Maumhoige and northwards towards Cúlog (435m). The grassier slopes then incline slowly eastward along the Knockanbaun ridge towards Knocknagur. A short grassy trail brings the walk to a close.
