It is likely that the name of this hill was simply An Binnín and that the name Cnoc an Bhinnín arose from the need to distinguish the hill from the townland of the same name.   Binnion is the 1276th highest summit in Ireland.

I parked my car at the binnion caravan park. Then set of following the path towards the beach, as you walk along the beach you will come to a horse shoe bay surrounded by steep sand dunes. I climbed the sand dunes and headed to the back of the mountain ( north side ) along the secluded beach of portlackin, a hidden gem. Then i started my climb of binnion hill, steep and challenging. Once your about half way up you are met of old time sheep walls which have gaps at some points. A heather filled hill until your close to the top were you are met with more rocky ground . Once at the top you will see a beautiful cairn and the views are amazing. North east Glashedy rock, East slieve snatch, South Raghtin more starring straight at you and to the west Dunaff and leenan. A 250m hill with a punch,Well worth the walk!! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1003/comment/3853/
