Knockacullion, in keeping with most of the hills in the area, has a dull summit area but more than makes up for this with the impressive cliffs stretching along the SE of the hill. Walking along the tops of the cliffs and those of Slieve Anierin is a fantastic experience for over 3 km. I approached the hill from Bencroy (a natural route which shows three hills in thier best light), descending to the col over quite a wet area, past a pool of water and making for a long low ridge with a rocky side lifting it above the ground below. This ridge can be followed to the summit area and then the line of cliffs can be followed towards Slieve Anierin, as contour around the hill Lough Nabellbeg comes into view, nestled perfectly below the start of the cliffs to Slieve Anierin and glistening in the sunlight very invitingly. There are cracking views S & E over the lowlands with numerous loughs. There is a slight drop down to the col before the ascent of Slieve Anierin. On the return from S Anierin I dropped down steeply at this col to the base of the cliffs and walked along the bottom back towards Bencroy. There has been a very substancial landslide in the not too distant past - can be clearly seen in the photo and has swept all before it for a considerable distance - are some more minor slides further along. A really nice hill which plays it part perfectly in the round of this walk. No one else up top on this trip. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/337/comment/2392/
