A memorable yet nondescript hill!
by Harry Goodman  21 Jul 2011
Climbed Knockaterrif Beg on 10 10 10 as part of a circuit which also included Temple Hill, Lyracappul, Carrignabinnia and Monabrack (For the first part of the walk see my comments on Temple Hill). From the coll below Temple Hill R8390022000 A we walked NE up the short but peat hagged and boggy climb to the flat topped and nondescript top of the hill with little to commend it as a climb other than "it is there" and on the MV list of 600m mountains. Indeed, as others have also written, I suspect any walkers who frequent these hills will, on their way from Temple Hill to Lyracappul, simply by-pass it. In addition I would doubt if anyone would consider climbing Knockaterrif Beg as a sole objective for a day in the hills. However for those of us there on 10 10 10 this top C8438422163 B proved to be a magical place!! Why, you may well ask! Heavy mist had plagued us for the previous day and a half when suddenly, brightness shone all around! Within fifteen minutes we were making our way down N from the hill to the coll below Lyracappul R8430022400 C and then up to the top enveloped in warm sunshine with ever increasing views of the surrounding mountains. For our small group this nondescript hill will live long in our memory. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/141/comment/6418/
