Grandad Day!
by paddyhillsbagger  29 Mar 2014
When you have a couple of the grandkids for the day then what better than tiring them out on a local hill? Knockshigowna is off the main N52 road and is easily spotted at night by it's illuminated large cross. I parked at the Fairymount Farm car park S000 957 A where much renovation and other works are in progress. Following the Red Hill trail it was easy enough for the little ones who enjoyed the views from the top. The summit itself not only has the aforementioned cross but a trig, an ugly communication mast collection and a currently in progress downhill MTB platform and course which crosses the walking route and is at present a bit of a scar. No doubt the owner has big plans for the future and I suspect it is a busy spot when the cycling is in full swing. As it was we only met 3 other walkers on the day. The cafe was not staffed and there wasn't anyone about. Summer season will no doubt be a different experience but it's a pleasant spot to take the family.
