Picture: Cruiscìn next to Mullagh Glas
 
Little and large
by wicklore  8 Jun 2010
Like Wee Binnion in the Mourne Mountains, Cruiscìn is nought but a pimple on the side of its parent mountain. This photo, taken from the south, shows Cruiscìn as a little lump sticking out from the lower right hand side of Mullagh Glas. (Cruiscìn just above pole at right of photo).

Not so obvious in the photo is the rather interesting position Cruiscìn holds, situated just above the col between Corcogemore and Mullagh Glas. If approaching from Corcogemore, there is a 200 metre haul up Mullagh Glas from Cruiscìn, along a steep narrow trail. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/681/comment/5858/
