No navigation issues on my way to Knocknaskagh N from Knocknaskagh (but then again it was a bit early for a pint), follow the track past Knocknaskagh trig point and take the track North as marked on the OSI maps and pass the little lake indicated on the map. After the lake where it widens out, you'll come across a good path up the clearing towards the summit and there is a faint path all the way to cairn from near the treeline.
