A distinctive, small, craggy topped hill.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  23 Jul 2012
This is a top that is seldom visited by hill walkers in it's own right but rather as an additional top on an ascent of Slieve Binnian. Two approaches are suggested, the first of which, from the Silent Valley Reservoir Car Park, involves a charge, and the second from Binnian Cross roads with no charge! Route 1: From the car park walk N towards the reservoir and then take a track into the trees on the right to pick up a boundary wall J308214 A. Cross over and follow another wall going NE uphill crossing the minor summit of Moolieve en route. Continue gently down along the line of the wall before climbing up steeply to Wee Binnian's craggy top and fine views down to the reservoir and it's surrounding peaks and S across the long shoulder of Eagle Mt, Shanlieve and Finlieve to the more distant Sleve Foye. Some 4k out and back. Route 2: Park at the roadside J324212 B, taking care not to block access for traffic, and go N along a good stone track, to it's end and then over the Cross Water stream to pick up a less distinct but clear track up to a col and stone wall. Follow the wall steeply SW to the top. Apart from the short climb from the col this is a walk with a gentle ascent and is just over 4k out and back. Linkback:
