Highpoint of the plateau east of Coomavoher
Short Summary created by Onzy,  25 Feb 2015
The highpoint of the western end of the Dunkerrons, situated to the north west of the vast plain overlooking Coomavoher. Knockmoyle also overlooks Coomura to the north east. It is an uninspiring top, but with staggering views over this desolate part of Iveragh.

Knockmoyle is a peak unlikely to be climbed by itself, but to be combined with other peaks in a circuit from either the west or the south.

From the west, starting around V631739 A, a circuit of Coomavoher itself, taking in Knockmoyle and Knocknagantee, as well as any, or all of, Cnoc Breasail, Coomura Mountain and Coomnacronia, is possible. This is a long walk, and to take in all the tops would take in the order of 8 hours.

From the south, parking places at either V669712 B or V675706 C allow a circuit of Eagles Lough taking in Knocknagantee and Coomnacronia and easily extended to take in both Knockmoyle and Coomura Mountain. Around 5 hours should be allowed. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/131/comment/4891/
