Knocknafallia has a broad ridge around 500m in length stretching East-West along the top. This fine ruin of a cairn is on the East end of the ridge. It is somewhat hard to say exactly where the summit actually is. The picture shows the cairn and a smaller cairn in the distance. By my reckoning the summit is around 20m South of this smaller cairn. The mountain in the distance is Knockmealdown (794m) with a ridge extending to the right (North) towards Knockmoylan. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/158/comment/398/
