MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Knockacullion in area Breifne, Ireland
Picture: From the NE, showing untracked and wearying bog.
 
Flattish scarp with cliffs to east and fatiguing terrain.
Short Summary created by simon3  23 Aug 2020
The most likely access to Knockacullion is from Bencroy or Slieve Anierin. We don't have information on reaching it from the west, Lough Allen side or the East side where there is a substantial cliff.
The summit is fairly flat on all sides except to the east and is covered in more or less unbroken blanket bog. The top has a distinct well established pond.
Please note that approaching from north or south you are walking on trackless moorland which many commentators have noted as sapping energy and taking an unexpected amount of energy. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/337/comment/5097/
