The track to the summit makes Knocknagantee one of the more easily accessible peaks on the long, remote ridge between Ballaghbeama and Coomakista. The Irish form is given as Cnoc na gCáinte in Toponomia Hiberniae, but the meaning of the second element and the background to the name are unclear. The translation tentatively provided here takes the second element as cáinte, an adjective meaning ‘blamed, blameworthy’, in the genitive plural.   Cnoc na gCáinte is the 152nd highest place in Ireland.

MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Knocknagantee (<i>Cnoc na gCáinte</i>) in area Dunkerron Mountains, Ireland
Picture: Eagle's Lough under Knocknagantee
 
A high rocky summit on the spine of Iveragh overlooking a massive coum.
Short Summary created by markmjcampion, Onzy  4 May 2021
Knocknagantee is a high perch which looks out over Sneem, Kenmare Bay and on to the Beara Peninsula and the Caha Mountains. It's about half way along the fairly linear chain of mountains that link the coast near Caherdaniel to the Ballaghbeama Gap. The hill is particularly impressive to the east, where its cliffs loom over the peaceful Eagle's Lough. Care needs to be taken in the area to the E of the summit.

S. Start from the farm at Gloragh, V66898 71239 A. Use can be made of a farm road leading to the W of the summit to an altitude of around 500m, from where the summit is a steep but short climb. Allow about 90 mins to the top.

Alternatively, you can leave this track at around the 300m contour and head NE over to Eagle's Lough. From here, follow the stream up to Lough Coomanassig and head straight out the back of the coum before swinging W then SW to the flattish summit marked by a stone pyramid. Allow 2.5hrs+

It can also be combined with Coomnacronia, Corruma Mountain and Knockmoyle in a 5-hour circuit starting from the above location or from opposite some farm buildings at V67483 70683 B.

W. Start at V63163 73894 C where you can park with permission. Head for the first of the Coomavoher lakes before swinging SE up to K West Top. Y]The steep part is now behind you and there's an easy but wonderful 3k walk to the top of K. Return via Knockmoyle and the northern side of Coomavoher. Allow 6 hrs+

Notable tracks incl. track/1969, track/2833 and track/3622. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/147/comment/4907/
