Hill of the Conversations
Short Summary created by Onzy,  24 Feb 2015
Knocknagantee is a high perch which looks out over Sneem to the Beara Peninsula and the Caha Mountains. The hill is particularly impressive to the east, where it looms over the peaceful Eagle's Lough.

The hill is most usually approached from the south; the typical starting points is from a farm at Gloragh, V669712 A, use can be made of a farm road leading to the west of the summit and to an altitude of around 500m, from where the summit is a steep but short climb. Around an hour and a half should see you to the top.

For a longer walk, Knocknagantee links easily with a number of other hills; a circuit of the plateau east of Coomavoher is the most obvious. Beginning from Gloragh or from opposite some farm buildings at V675706 B, Knocknagantee can be combined with Coomnacronia, Corruma Mountain and Knockmoyle in a 5-hour circuit.
