See comment on Bencroy on how to get to start. From Bencroy Knockabell is in a roughly
southeasterly direction. Its main distinguishing feature is a small lake at the summit.

The area of moorland from here north to the Bellavally Gap has a wonderfully bleak and remote
feel, even though the terrain can be wet and arduous. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/337/comment/1452/
