On our way down from Beenkeragh we went around the shoulder of Knockbrinnea (W) without summiting it (due to tiredness probably!) but we did get to its lower eastern summit to get our bearings. The views here are stunning. Your fellow hikers look like dust mites on the path down in the Hag's Glen path and you get a great panorama of the Reek's Ridge too. A great plus for this mountain is its wilderness factor. After the veritable M50 that is Carrauntoohil we didn't meet a single soul on Knockbrinnea. The downside is that its side is heavily boulder strewn and you are always careful not to wrench an ankle. We rejoined the Hag's Glen from a gully beside the Hag's Tooth.
