Short walk to the first of Binnian's four Tops
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  7 Nov 2011
For most hillwalkers climbing Slieve Binnian from Carrick Little, the East Top, though only a sort way off the route, is a diversion seldom taken yet it can act as a first top of four in a fine circuit of the mountain. To climb the East Top start at Carrick Little car park J345 219 A and walk N up the adjacient track. After crossing a stone stile, leave it at an appropriate point and follow the stone wall NW uphill. Where the ground starts to level out watch for a wooden stile on the left. Cross over and walk gently up SE to the top crowned by a number of small rocky tors. While it is possible to access the top earlier by crossing the wall at an appropriate point on the way up the use of the stile is the recommended option in the interests of preserving the wall. Return by way of ascent. If time allows when there, it is very worthwhile continuing up to Slieve Binnian and then along the ridge to Binnian N Top and the nearby and much more dramatic N Tor. From there descend down the newly constructed stone "staircase" (2011) to the Binnian/Lamigan col where a right turn leads along the track SE, past the Blue Lough, back to Carrick Little.
