Knockantooreen was the last top in a three hour circuit that started with Carran South, and continued to Carran.
From Carran it's an easy but wettish 1.7 km across an undulating landscape of bleached grass and small outcrops. The unmarked summit gives wide views, particularly to to the cliffs north of Caoinkeen, and to the diminutive but impressive Bird Hill.
Whether you do Knockantooreen as part of a circuit as we did, or do it as a one - off top (unlikely!), the best place to start is from the track to the south 036661 A - plenty of space to park. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/623/comment/3798/
