This picture is taken from the source of the Pigeonrock River which runs between Knockaterriff and Temple Hill. The river is deeply incised further down this very quiet valley. To the left is Knockaterriff, while you can see on the right towards the top of the picture, part of the long ridge which extends SE from Temple Hill. On this occasion I reached this area by crossing this long ridge, starting from near Benard which is an interesting, solitary place in its own right. However I expect you could reach the Knockaterriff area more directly by going up one of the roads that lead north off the main road near Kilbeheny.
