Not to be missed !!

Climbed Canshanavoe as part of a loop walk in March 2014, starting from the Healy Pass and including Knockowen, Cushnaficulla, Knockeirky, Glenkeel Top and Stoockeenalackareha (see track 2767). I was glad to see this summit was included in the new Arderin Beg list, as it has been one of my favourite spots along this long walk. The weather was rather cold and cloudy, with a few sunny spells (it even snowed for a few minutes on the way back to Knockowen), clear enough to enjoy the views almost all along the way though. The summit is topped with a small cairn. The area is wild and remote, and the views are extensive, especially to the E and NE towards the Caha Mountains, Glenlough Mountain, Glenkeel Top and the Sugarloaf Mountain ridge. Hungry Hill stands proudly to the SW. The views over Bantry Bay and Adrigole Bay to the S are best seen from a flattish area SSE of the summit (see other comment). Also some nice views towards Knockeirky, Cushnaficulla and Knockowen to the N. The ridge that leads to Knockeirky is quite long, but rather easy-going, despite a few ponds and peat hags to contour. I would really recommend this loop walk, as the scenery is absolutely beautiful all along the way. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1470/comment/18124/

A stunning viewpoint !!

Canshanavoe can be climbed from Glenkeel Lough (E). The ascent is quite steep from that side and it is worth having a short break before reaching the top to enjoy the amazing views over Bantry Bay and Hungry Hill to the S/SW and also over the steep cliffs W of Nareera to the E. There is a rather flattish area to the SSE of the summit, between contours 450 and 500m, strewn with endless bands of bare, flat rock, which is a fantastic promontory over Bantry and Adrigole bays (see pic).
