Whereas Cummeen is a small hill with a fantasitc view surrounded by bog, Knocknakilton (spelled with an extra 'n' on the OS map) is just bog. Recommended for peak baggers or peat boggers only. Could be included as part of a Cummeen-Knocknakilton-Dromavally horseshoe walk but it would never become a classic. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/723/comment/3256/
