Access to Knocknagantee is slightly tricky - follow the instructions in "Best Walks" to the letter and you will eventually end up at the farm near 669 712. If your car is in any way low slung, you'll need to take it very gently! The route itself is fairly straightforward, a circuit of Eagles Lough, Lough Coomanassig, and the summit of Knocknagantee itself. Keep well to the left of the waterfall on the way up to Coomanassig - the spray can make things quite slippy. Pick up the farm track on the way down off the summit (head west) - note that the track extends much further NNW than is shown on the OS map. Photo shows Knocknagantee from the eastern shore of Eagle's Lough. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/147/comment/504/
