Quick steep walk up with views of the NW Shannons.
Short Summary created by simon3,  30 Jul 2012
One way up is from the newly tarred (2012) road where there space for a few cars to park near R93092 70540 A without blocking gates. Ascend straight up through the forest beside a fence and later a broken wall. For an easier start find a looping track, shown on the OS 1:50000, that goes NW at first.

From the summit there are impressive views of the Benduff-Kilduff-Devilsbit ridge and some smaller unlisted summits in front of them. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/823/comment/5582/

There's space for one car beside (but not blocking) the gate at R93092 70540. I went through said gate and followed the fence that handrails the forest (on the right as you look up the hill). You can follow this fence and a wall all the way to the trig pillar at the summit for some pleasant views north and east. It shouldn't take more than 30 mins to get up from the road, so it makes an easy bag. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/823/comment/4201/

Took route that is described previously. Suggest parking on left just beside ruined building which is 50m downhill from farm gate mentioned. It is possible to avoid the open fields as I had to do with dog in tow by clambering up bank and tracking along just inside the fence. Either way you eventually come across a wide stony track (the visible scar that you can see on the road from Dolla to Silvermines). Summit is trig-marked as well as a small hillfort and there are some good views to be had (especially if you walk SW from summit to the shoulder of the hill as this photo looking towards Ballincurra Hill shows.

Took this nice photo of wind turbines on the way up Knockadigeen. Allow around one hour for the return walk I mentioned above. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/823/comment/3031/

Easy access up a farm track from the west side, between it and the neighbouring hill. Even though you cross through farmland there have been no access problems. Just close the gate and leave the dog at home as this is sheep country. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/823/comment/3002/

Knockadigeen Hill

I stopped at road works near Templederry, having approached from Borrisoleigh, and was kindly told by a Council Worker cum fellow Hillwalker that the best access was to go through Templederry village heading due south and uphill. To go a mile plus from the village and take the first right. Then a short distance later to turn left after a concrete watertower. Then to travel a half mile to a farm house and park up beside an old farm gate leading to a very old boreen. This I did and I followed the old boreen past the stone ruins of an old village long abandoned. I followed this to its end then I climbed over a wire fence and headed across a large open field, climbing all the time at a 40% plus angle. I came across an old lane or access road but kept traversing uphill to the heather line finding the lane again to take me through the forestry (brushing past two or three sitka spruce a couple of times). The forest was of pine and it opened into a clearing at the top to reveal a trig and some grand views though these were limited by the haze that was about today the 9.03.10. I thankfully had my phone cum camera and got a couple of nice photo's. I could see Keeper, The Arra Mountains, Slieve Bernagh and Lough Derg. Northwards the Devilsbit range and way off in the haze the Slieve Blooms. Knockanora looked proudly across at Knockadigeen, its cairn prominent and the ancient hill fort below brown with ferns or bracken. The climb was steep in places and took about 35 minutes or so. Reminiscent of Gortagarry beside the 'Bit due to the trees but well worth a visit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/823/comment/4493/
