Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  8 Nov 2011
Start at Carrick Little car park J345 219 A and follow the adjacent track N to cross a stone stile. Once over continue along the track as it swings NW to pass Annalong Wood and, some distance further along, the rocky hump of Percy Bysshe and the Blue Lough, both on the right side. Continue up and along the track to J321 256 B in the col between Binnian and Lamigan. Turn left and go SW up a rocky edge. This rough track soon becomes a stone path, set down in 2011 to counter the erosion on the heather covered spur leading up towards the N Tor area J319 246 C. Once there go in among the high rock tors and then seek to clamber up and around the right side to gain the top. While not a difficult climb it could become so in high winds or icy conditions when it would best be avoided. The view from the top down N over the Ben Crom Reservoir is particularly fine, as is the 360 degree panorama of the high Mournes. Climb down carefully and return by way of acent to Carrick Little. An alternative route is to park at the Silent Valley car park J306 211 D (for which there is a charge). Take the shuttle bus (a further charge), or walk, up the side of the Reservoir to the Ben Crom Reservoir J315 255 E. Climb up the steps to the dam head and then take a rough track going NE up the hillside to the Binnian/Lamigan col J321 256 B. From here go up SE and follow the directions described above.
