Not much but exceptional views on a good day.
Short Summary created by simon3, jackill  31 Oct 2012
A route from the north starts at the northern end of Glenbeg Lough V70103 53800 A and following the track there.
A route from the south starts from by leaving your car at Rosmackowen Church V74200 47209 B (Point A) and head up the little borheen immediately after the Church on the Castletownbere side.
Take the left hand fork after a few hundred meters and continue on through a gate following a rough track to the Glas Loughs at about 400 meters elevation.
The face of Knocknagree that looks out over Beara Island is the best approach to take with the least amount of climbing around the rocky folds typical of the area.
Down the rough far side then to a small lake followed by a boggy trot across peat hags and one small hill before the climb to Lackawee's summit.
The view of the Iveragh peninsula on a good day is exceptional. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/323/comment/5083/
