Short walk to the first of Binnian's four Tops
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  7 Nov 2011 For most hillwalkers climbing Slieve Binnian from Carrick Little, the East Top, though only a sort way off the route, is a diversion seldom taken yet it can act as a first top of four in a fine circuit of the mountain. To climb the East Top start at Carrick Little car park J345 219 (Point A) and walk N up the adjacient track. After crossing a stone stile, leave it at an appropriate point and follow the stone wall NW uphill. Where the ground starts to level out watch for a wooden stile on the left. Cross over and walk gently up SE to the top crowned by a number of small rocky tors. While it is possible to access the top earlier by crossing the wall at an appropriate point on the way up the use of the stile is the recommended option in the interests of preserving the wall. Return by way of ascent. If time allows when there, it is very worthwhile continuing up to Slieve Binnian and then along the ridge to Binnian N Top and the nearby and much more dramatic N Tor. From there descend down the newly constructed stone "staircase" (2011) to the Binnian/Lamigan col where a right turn leads along the track SE, past the Blue Lough, back to Carrick Little.
Point A: J345 219 (turn area map On)

The green green grass of.......
by gerrym  28 Sep 2010 Start from Carrick Little carpark (where i left my camera on the bonnet of the car and found it still there 5 hours later) take the idylic laneway flanked by towering walls of mourne stone. The surrounding lush green fields give a clue to the origin of the stone for the walls.

A characterful rock stile brings an information board detailing the stupendous views up into the Annalong Valley ringed by high hills. Follow the wall left from the track onto the hillside. This has seen heavy traffic and is well eroded in places.To the left the sun was shining through the gaps in the stone walls which looked as though they had been put together by children. A snow capped Comedagh looked suitably impressive at the nead of the valley, with the scar of the Brandy Pad impossibly high up from this lowly point.

As the climb levels can cross the wall and take the short walk to the summit. This has a number of little rock tors, dwarfed by the real deal on Binnian proper. They were big enough to shelter me from a strong breeze as the sun melted what was left of a morning hail shower. The views from the top are pretty good, especially out to sea where the shadows of clouds created the illusion of islands to compliment the Isle of Man and the east wind created plenty of surf along the shoreline. The shore continues to the mouth of Carlingford Lough and the backing of the Cooley mountains in view. Looking up the valley the clouds continued to cast thier shadow as they rose and fell over Donard. Slieve Croob and the further distant Belfast Hills were also in the frame.

An easy walk brings the heights of Slieve Binnian and the endless exploration of the tors along its length - as well as the endless views. I dropped down and climbed Lamagan and descended from the col with Cove to the rough track into the valley and back to the carpark and my camera!

by GWPR  21 Feb 2004 Slieve Binnian East Top as viewed from Slieve Binnian. Descending from Binnian follow Mourne Wall east to reach wooden stile. Cross over and short climb to East Top. Return to stile and follow Mourne Wall East to reach track to Carrick Little. Tried to continue east from East Top but met a high granite wall with barbed wire on top. It seems to be a secondary wall and not the Mourne Wall proper.

Picture: The view south to Slieve Foye from the summit of Binnan East Top. Expand pics.
by csd  9 Oct 2005 We tackled Slieve Binnan East Top last in a North - South loop of Slieve Binnan's four summits. Access from Slieve Binnan proper was easy -- just follow the wall down and hang a right at the col between Binnan and East Top. Nice views south to Slieve Foye as it stands over Carlingford. After savouring the views we headed ENE to pick up the wall, which we followed down to Carricklittle car park.
