A route from north of Sneem in Iveragh taking in four VLs; Coomacronia, Coomura Mountain, Knockmoyle and Knocknagantee. The route is based on that outlined in A Hendroff's, 'Dingle, Iveragh and Beara Peninsulas' book, extended to take in Coomura Mountain.

The route starts from a parking place at V93526 80439, opposite some farm buildings in a layby of sorts. heads east with a bit of north along the road, through a couple of gates around some holiday cottages, and onto open ground. As you rise north towards Coomacronia, Eagles Lough opens up to the west below the sheer (and very impressive) walls of Knocknagantee's east face. Over Coomacronia and the entire route is laid out before you. These four hills have been compared to the bedposts supporting a sagging mattress and this fits! The route to Coomura Mountain involves heading north west into the sagging basin before heading north east up the slope.

From Coomura to Knockmoyle it really gets interesting as you trace the lip of the coum. Simon3 on the Coomura Mountain page mentioned the headwall of Coomura itself as being unlike anything he had seen before and it is certainly very confused terrain - not at all like what you expect from a coum;almost slashed and torn ground and a challenge to negotiate.

After this the route is plain sailing, up the grassy treadmill onto Knockmoyle and then over 2k of mixed ground to Knocknagantee. Descending from Knocknagantee is a matter of heading west downslope for 700m where you will meet a very substantial track heading roughly south and to your starting point. This track is indicated on the OS map, but is much more substantial than I had expected - joined it at a height of 460m but it appears to extend above 500m.
