Small but Perfectly Formed. Excellent Views for the Effort.

Might be a nice one for the family on a dry day or an easy introduction to the hills for casual walkers. Climbed on a cloudy and drizzly February afternoon from the road on the saddle between Cnoc a' Ti and Cnoc an Uaignis. Had a lash at the latter as well (see separate entry) , although that was a much longer affair. Between the combings of cloud, excellent views onto Lauragh & Kilmackilogue and the Cummeengeera Horseshoe as well as across the bay down towards Caherdaniel. The poignant monument at the summit to Richard Mersey is a fitting tribute on the very first hill he climbed back in the '40s. Richard in his book 'The Hills of Cork and Kerry', captured as no other the sentiments of those of us who love this glorious corner of the world. Go ndeanfaidh Dia trocaire ar a anam uasal.

Author of one of Ireland's best hillwalking books remembered

At a mere 330m Knockatee has a lowly elevation that belies it's ruggedness and stature.
From the road that crosses the col with Knockanoughanish it's a steep but brief pull up stone-strewn slopes. The summit lacks a cairn or pile of stones, but just below the summit is a plaque set into a boulder in memory of Richard Mersey, author of the excellent 'The Hills of Cork & Kerry'.
Although a bit of a toff (he purchased his walking poles from an exclusive store in Picadilly), he had from early childhood enjoyed roaming the hills of the south-west, particularly Beara. It's a personal and enjoyable guidebook, with some interesting B&W photography by Bernd Thee - hopefully it's still in print. It's nice to see a memorial to his name.

Small summit mighty views!
by three5four0  10 Aug 2010
On the minor road between Knockatee and Knockanoughanish, there is enough space to park a car off road on small track, without blocking it, at V78175 60165 A.

Follow the track up hill and then sheep tracks, after it ends. You are aiming for the large re entrant / rock faulty, which runs left to right across the hill. Once in this grassy re entrant, ascend it (right) to its highest point. Look to your left and you will see a faint path leading up hill to the small summit area. And what a view point it is!

Just to complement the sentiments expressed so eloquently by others such as ciarraioch, this photo shows Knockatee on a sunny day in June, taken from the SW. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/924/comment/15015/
