This name is rather puzzling. Ir. cánóg means 'puffin', but there seems to be no other instances of its use as a generic in place-names.   Caunoge is the 563rd highest place in Ireland. Caunoge is the most southerly summit and also the second most westerly in the Glenbeigh Horseshoe area.

If you drop off Caunoge by its southern spur, the smooth curves of the landscape are jarred by this jagged rock on the horizon. It's Scellig Michael framed by Aghatubride and Knocknaskereighta. A surprising keyhole view. Look out for it. If you can see Scellig Michael from Caunoge, you can see 38.6km. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/448/comment/1862/
