The legend is told of Loch an Scáil, the mountain lake. The word scál… has associations with Lugh, but in this legend it is the name of a woman who lived near the lake. Scál Ní Mhurnáin she was called. A giant was about to carry her off and she sent word to Cúchulainn to defend her. Cúchulainn stood on top of the mountain to the east of the lake [Dromavally Mountain]. The giant was on the summit of the opposite western mountain [Knockmulanane]. They exchanged challenges in verse-form and then began their battle which consisted of throwing rocks at each other across the valley. It lasted for a week, at the end of which Cúchulainn was hit and moaned with pain. When Scál heard the moaning she thought her defender was killed and she leaped into the lake and was drowned (Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' , pp. 208-09).   Knockmulanane is the 309th highest summit in Ireland.

What a day! the old legs were certainly tested at times.I started at the Connor Pass and struck up the side of Slievanea following the track initially until it turns to the right. There are two tracks one marked by a line of intermittent white stones and one that follows the line of a sheep fence .At the top of the Mullaghanablagher cliffs is a small stone semicircle and from here its a short 450 mtrs to the grassy summit of Slievanea.For a touch of vertigo look down at Loch Doon from Slievanea's summit. From here I followed the cliffs around to Coumanare and a summit that is marked by a small pile of stones, look out over the valley of the Coumanare lakes from here and , as they say, wonder at the beauty of it all.
I turned around and headed back down towards the source of the river that drops away into Loch Iarthair, then over to the "pyramid" shaped summit of Croaghskearda and up the broad shoulder of Gowlane Beg to its stoney summit. Next it was on to the Windy Gap(yes it's windy) and a steep 130 mtrs climb to point 609 mtrs before reaching Banoge North. From Banoge North it's a two kilometer walk along a broad col to the summit of Knockmulanane.
I descended at Knockmulanane to the valley (very steep - be careful) and had my lunch at Loch Thuairin Mharta.I walked back along the valley to the Coumanare lakes along a stoney track that doesn't seem to have had much use of late. I climbed the north side of Gowlane Beg and struck back across the bog to meet the track, at Q495 052 A, that leads back to the Connor Pass.The photo was taken on Knockmulanane looking back along my route, behind(extreme right) you can see Gearhane Brandon Peak and Mount Brandon. 22 kms and 7.5 hours Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/288/comment/1715/
