On the map this hill is given the moniker Carrignagower, and this is how I indicated it in the visualisation attached and in the one I gave for Coumfea West Top. We climbed a steep hill out of the valley where the stream fell down to the Sgilloge Loughs and skirted the next valley to make our way onto Knocknalingady, this was an easy enough walk with a great view of the knife like ridge that makes it's way up to Knockanaffrin. We followed the fence (see John Finn's picture) down and came to some very steep sections that were difficult enough to negotiate (I have become a wuss now that I have a family, no more leaping down mountain goat style).
