Small hill with stories and a massive view.
Short Summary created by simon3,  11 Nov 2016
An obvious place to visit this from is the col at V78101 60093 A. There is parking for 2 or 3 cars. The ground is unfenced and the land leading to the top is rough but passable.
Knockatee is well known in the area both for its distinctive shape and as a pleasant place to visit. It is commonage and actively used by local sheep farmers.
Views from the top include the intricate coastline to the SW of Kilmakilloge Harbour over which there is the ridgeline of the Cummeegeera Circuit. Across Kenmare River much of the famous high ground of the Dunkerrons is visible such as Mullaghanattin and the MacGillycuddy Reeks.
Richard Mersey wrote one of the best hillwalking books for the area "The Hills of Cork and Kerry"; he started on Knockatee and is commemorated there on a plaque. (The plaque fell off recently probably because of frost action, but has been put back.)
Visit this place on a good day for a quick walk with all that is best in Kerry and Cork views. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/924/comment/5683/
