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!
