MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Binn Mhor East Top (<i>Binn Mhór soir barr</i>) in area Maamturks, Ireland
Picture: The summit cairn with the high point a few meters further to the left and Binn Mhor in the distance.
 
Another natural diversion with fine views.

A substantial cairn marks the summit area, only a few meters from the true summit/highest point (see pic). It has fine views over the low ground to the S and over Mullach Glas to the E. I found its prominence seemed to be slightly more important than that of the NE Top, still I am not too sure about the Arderin Beg status either indeed.
