An Cnocán Bán (Knocknabaun Hill)
by mdoc1969  7 Nov 2015
This must be by far the easiest route to take to the summit of An Cnocán Bán near Cleggan. Drive up towards Cleggan Farm Holiday Cottages. Park in the parking spaces just shy of the working farm and cottages (approx L 61005 58829 A). If you meet the owners do let them know that you plan to walk to the summit - they're very accommodating. Walk straight on until you meet a gate (at approx L 60835 58947 B). This can be unlatched - do make sure to close it again. Walk straight on towards the next gate. This can also be unlatched. Once you pass through you will see another gate to your right. This is secured by a rope so climb the fence to the left of the gate and follow the track next to the wall on your right (for 50 or so yards) before heading for the summit. The views from the summit are some of the very best in the area - a signal tower (now in ruins) was situated there for this reason. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1352/comment/18386/
