Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  13 Dec 2011
Depending on the direction taken, Cnoc Iochtair is either the first or last nail in the Coomloughra Horseshoe. Park off road near V77150 87050 A the start of the concrete Hydro Road leading up to L. Iochtair V777 856 B. From the W end of the Loch go NE steeply up the hillside watching for a path to help the initial climb up through the thick heather before breaking out on to stoney/rocky ground. Cnoc Iochtair is the sharp pointed top immediately above and is first in line of three 700m+ tops leading up to Beenkeragh, Ireland's second highest mountain. From its summit there is a fine view SE across the Coomloughra Glen and if conditions are right NW to Brandon and the Slieve Mish mountains on the Dingle peninsula.
