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.

A hill to be enjoyed
by Harry Goodman  17 Aug 2011
I climbed Binnion on Fri 5 August after a short walk up and down nearby Coolcross Hill. I followed eflanaga's excellent route, parking just off road at C3758447958 G. As far as a description of the walk is concerned I could not add significantly to what has already been said other than to commend it to anyone wishing to climb this hill. On setting out the low escarpment directly ahead does not prepare you for the sheer delight to be found in walking this winding route mostly on a good and well defined hill track with frequent opportunities to take in an ever changing panorama. Once at the summit area I was surprised to find that the fine cylindrical cairn (still adorned with its metal post!) is not, in my opinion, actually standing on the highest point. This is in fact reserved for a lesser cairn of stones some 30/40 metres to the NE (see photo). Although you could be up and down Binnion in something under 1 hour 30 minutes this is not a hill for a quick ascent, this is a hill to be enjoyed, so allow time just to potter about. I spent just under two hours on the hill with many stops and diversions to appreciate the beautiful scenery all around me. A walk of some 5.5km.
