New Comment: Knockout scenery
by Colin Murphy  30 Aug 2021
This walk turned out to be one of my all-time favourites. I did it on a fine August day approaching from the south with the kind permission of a friendly farmer. (See short summary.) The approach up the western slope was beautiful enough, with great views toward the surrounding coastlines, but the scenery to the east and north east presenting itself from the top was truly spectacular, other-worldly almost. I also bagged Glenkeel Top that day. See that top's page for my precarious descent! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1470/comment/23255/
