This hill, which is the highest point on a ridge consisting of three peaks, is unnamed on OS maps. However, the name Knocknascollop is given for the SE peak on the Discovery map, and on William Bald's map of Co. Mayo (1830) the NW peak is marked Knock-na-Skalib (effectively the same name), showing that this name applies to the whole ridge. Scollops are looped sticks used to secure thatch on a roof. The name probably refers to the notched appearance of the ridge. Previously Carrowmore Hill in MV.
