Didn't bother with Binn Mhairg (I was in a group of 14 and not all were keen on the detour!), but it's a simple trot down the ridge from Binn Chaonaigh. Photo shows this ridge, with Binn Mhairg on the left. Taken from Binn idir an Dá Log SE top (pt 659). Binn Mhór et al are visible in the background (29.03.2003) Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/252/comment/407/
