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.

We Parked at 582051 H in the small car park by Lough Annascaul, there is a notice with a map, which has the route up Knockmulanane marked on it by the local walking club, which meets in Hanafins Pub in Annascaul (good place out for a pint & to find out info on the local hills). Study it closely as there is some steep ground to negotiate, suffice to say you level the track around 576057 I by a small hut with a sign on it, and arc uphill by a minor re-entrant to the north of the 2 streams (& steep ground) marked on the map. You should end up at 569053 J, at an ill defined ridge leading steeply up hill, arriving just east of the summit.

From the summit we continued west over pt563 and descended into a high col before climbing up to Cnoc na Banogie.
