Point A on Simon's Google Earth visualisation...I left my rucksack there for a quick there-and-back up Knockmoyle, and it was something of a relief to find it again! It's that kind of area. If blessed with razor-sharp visibility route-finding is easy hereabouts, but it's all too obvious what a challenge it would be in mist: having walked from Mullaghanattin, I'd intended to go as far as Knocknagantee before turning but fatigue and a burgeoning need for my tea meant I turned north once I reached Coomnacronia. The fences (which are numerous) weren't too much of an obstacle for me with my 34" inside leg measurement: others may not be so lucky. Coomura itself is just a swelling on the edge of the plateau, but highly pleasant for all that. The descent down the shoulder towards Lettergarriv heads towards some excellent views, but is frustratingly slow in places (outcropping rock on the shoulder, thick vegetation once you're off it). Take heed from the experience of this walker: don't assume that because you can see the end of the track by the lough from the shoulder that it's going to be a doddle to get to it on the ground...
