One way of reaching the summit is to start from the T junction at V839786 A. Walk NW of this beside Cummeralooderry Stream until you gain the flattish ground where the stream turns left (West) at around say 836794 B. Then head for the summit. Don't go up or down beside the lower parts of the Glasheengarriff stream. It's covered in high rushes, with water and rock in the cracks.
This summit is the eastern end of the Dunkerrons, that great ridge of high ground that finally ends near Waterville. The summit and the ridge to it from Knocknabreeda are boggy and flattish underfoot, however the position of the summit gives great views from an unusual angle. Take a look at the Upper Killarney Lake. The shadowed summit just beyond it is Torc Mountain while the snow-covered summit top right is Mangerton.

Low November sun shows the summit, taken from the south.

The road from Killarney to Kenmare goes past the three main ridges of the Iveragh peninsula, from north to south: the Reeks, the Dunkerrons and the Mangertons. This picture is taken from Moll's Gap, a pass over the Mangertons and shows Mothaillín the east end of the Dunkerrons, in front of the snow-covered Reeks.

The ridge from Mothaillín to Knocknabreeda and beyond runs parallel with Boughil and Knocklomena to the south and the ridge of the Reeks to the North. Magnificent views! Sense of walking amongst the mountains.

The photo has Cnoc an Chuillinn (958m) right of centre on the skyline with Brassel Mountain beneath it. We could see the curious pouncing cloud above Cnoc an Chuillinn as it stretched out from Carrauntoohil, left of centre. A lenticular cloud. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/442/comment/2555/
