Knocknalougha is just to the left of centre as viewed coming down the east side of Knockshanahullion.Following the sheep fence (starts at point 551 mtrs approx) around which is easier going than taking the shortest route over the glen.The hill that the fence is running up in the distance has the Avondhu way from the Vee running along its base above the forestry heading for Araglin.
