Picture: Knocknacloghoge from Kanturk mountain
Circuit of Lough Dan
by murphysw  2 Aug 2011
Took this panorama of Knocknacloghoge from Kanturk on a recent circuit of Lough Dan. Parked at about O158020 A, and then climbed Scarr O133018 B, before walking around to Kanturk mountain O126034 C, then descending to the Inchavore river valley O140045 D. After this Knocknacloghoge O144054 E was a short sharp climb. After this it was down to the Cloghoge river valley to join the road which took us to the Wicklow way at O173063 F, which eventually took us back to the start Trackback:

After a lovely walk up and around Knocknacloghoge yesterday, thought I'd add a few more comments on walking around near the Inchavore River and northern Lough Dan shore. The southern slopes of Knocknacloghoge we found to be quite boggy, especially further west where the granite chunks and slabs peter out. After lunching in a lovely oak grove on the Inchavore River (roughly O136046 G) we had a bit of an excursion to explore the southern bank of the river then returned to the grove to cross back over the river (best place to cross if you don't fancy a swampy swim). There were a plethora of sheep and deer trails to follow, some more or less boggy than others. On a slightly more well-used trail we happened across markers - bamboo poles with white fabric flags which seemed to indicate a route which then connected to an actual trail near the head of the lough. Above Lough Dan, there was plenty of gorse but didn't bother with the gaiters because most of it was upper leg and body height. Not quite sure how the bare legged mountain bikers who passed us in the opposite direction just as we emerged from the gorse tunnel fared... Trackback:

Picture: 'Erratic Sentinels'
eflanaga on Knocknacloghoge, 2009

Another picture only addition. I came across these two 'erratics' on the eastern slope of Cnoc Na Chlochóg. The interesting thing is they appear to perfectly allign the summit directly at the midpoint between them - coincidence!! The picture here however has the actual summit a fraction immediately left of the erratic to the right. The 'small' erratic visible on top of the hill in the distance is on a false summit to the real summit's left. That all sounds a tad confusing doesn't it!! Trackback:

Mountain climbed yesterday 29/08/2015. Nice walk, nice view on the top. Not that easy, quite strenuous for our ankles...
CANON CAMERA LOST on the way down but no footpath so when we went back up, we could not find it... and then it rained... The camera must be broken but if you find it, can you please let me know. At least for the SD card... Many many thanks! Trackback:
