Knocknagantee - East Ridge (On the right) with Kenmare Bay and Beara Peninsula beyond. This photograph was taken north of Lough Coomanassig (O.S. Map 78: V675737 C) which is at the base of the East Ridge. Lough Coomanassig feeds via a spectacular waterfall into the larger Eagle's Lake located at the base of the south-east facing side of Knocknagantee. The summit of Knocknagantee is about 650 metres southwest from the top of the ridge. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/147/comment/2088/
