This hill, which is the highest point on a ridge consisting of three peaks, is unnamed on OS maps. However, the name Knocknascollop is given for the SE peak on the Discovery map, and on William Bald's map of Co. Mayo (1830) the NW peak is marked Knock-na-Skalib (effectively the same name), showing that this name applies to the whole ridge. Scollops are looped sticks used to secure thatch on a roof. The name probably refers to the notched appearance of the ridge. Previously Carrowmore Hill in MV.   Knocknascollop NW Top is the 1283th highest summit in Ireland.

True Summit.

As mentioned in the previous comment the NW Top is 5m higher than Knocknascollop which has a large cairn on top.Easy access to this top is via a rough farm tract at F8089730646 E with parking 40m further on towards the lake on the same side. Although this tract runs out it will bring you close to the summit at F8012929787 F . Underfoot conditions good with lake and ocean views.
