The North Top of Binnian is easiest approached by following the wall which cuts across the path at the edge of the Annalong Wood. Park at Carrick Little carpark but be extremely cautious, break-ins and vandalism are frequent. Anyway... follow the Carrick Little track up to a gate which enters you into the mountains. The Carrick Little track is a nice enough wee dander, beautiful views stretching across gorse covered farmland (as mentioned by the reliable Bleck Cra) and out across the glistening Irish Sea. You really have to stop for a few minutes half way up the track to appreciate these views, it's well worth it! Continue up the track and go through the gate a press onwards down the track running alongside Wee Binnian and the Annalong Wood. From here I would advise you to wear gaiters, it tends to be very boggy and damp along this path. The views of Rocky Mountain, Donard, Commedagh and Cove from here are surprisingly good. At the end of this path, you will reach a point at the edge of the Annalong Wood where you meet a river and the path "junctions" for want of a better word! Take a left and follow the wall up steep ground alongside the Douglas Crag cliffs to reach the summit of the north top. The views from here are up there with the best in the Mournes. After spending some time admiring the views, head south towards the southern top and down to Wee Binnian. From Wee Binnain you can rejoin the Carrick Little track and head down to the carpark. A great days' walking! Trackback:
