Slieve Binnian, Mournes

14 May, 2017 @ 10:15 – 19:30

Meet at car park at the junction of Dunbar Link/Exchange Street/Corporation Street at 10:15am or at Carrick Little carpark at 11:45am

Walk 1

Walk will commence at Carrick Little carpark at 12.15 then around to Wee Binnian, South Tor, Back Castles, Binnian Lough then down to Saddle at the bases of Binnian and Lamagan and return along the Annalong Valley to Carrick Little. The southern face of Binnian is steep.

Walk 2

An easier option than Walk 1. From Carrick Little carpark up along the Mourne wall to the Summit Tor of Binnian and back along the Back Castles to the North Tor and descent to the track leading back to Carrick Little via Blue Lough or, I think even better, walking over the eastern side of Binnian to reach the quarries and the cart track past the old workman’s huts to the South Tors.

It is essential that appropriate footwear is worn (no trainers).
