Binbane isn't very high and it doesn't have steep cliffs or other drama. But it does have location so it's not surprising that it has a trig pillar on it because there are clear lines to much of the high ground of Donegal and north Mayo.

Apart from Benbulbin (43k away) as shown in the picture, it's possible to see Slievetooey, Slieve League, Knockalongy in the Ox Mtns and just discernible in the Rayleigh scattering, Nephin 108k away. (not in this pic)

Neither a height based list nor a relative height list would tell you of the attractions of this small summit which is so rewarding on a good day. Often low hills have there own charm. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/610/comment/2850/
