New Comment: Easy add-on from Slí Bharra waymarked way
by conorb  2 Sep 2019
We did the Pilgrim’s Way section of the Slí Bharra from Carriganass Castle to Gougane, Knockbreteen is only about 200m off the Waymarked trail.
Approximately 4.5km after leaving Carriganass Castle, the trail skirts a conifer plantation and makes a 90 degree turn to the Northwest.
Here you can leave the Slí Bharra and hop over the fence. Follow the ridge for about 200m and you will reach the peak. There are fine views back down to Kealkill and glimpses of Bantry Bay and the peninsulas around it. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1233/comment/20641/
