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 308th highest place in Ireland.

Climbed this mountain yesterday with a view to walking the ridge line back towards the Connair Pass. Started at the car park at Lough Annascaul but walked back along the road to avoid the cliffs above the car park. The ascent to the skyline was tough going to begin but got easier the higher I got up. However when I reached the ridge which is quite narrow and very steep with only grass I was hit by NW gales gusting 45 knots. As this was a solo trip the after doing the Brandon ridge I decided to descend and wait for a less windy day. The view are stunning though, across to the reeks and all of the mountains on the Iveragh penninsula. I could even see the Skelligs. I'll definitely be back to finish what I started.
