The most accessible approach to Knockanaguish is via the Kerry Way from the south which is what we did on a very warm Friday afternoon. Starting from a T-junction in the townland of Gowlane R 917 752 A we ascended on the Kerry Way track until we drew abreast of Knockanaguish on our right. A grassy ramp is easily visible through the crags and steeper ground. Much sweating later we ignored a false top (complete with misleading pile of stones) and continued on NE for a few minutes to the true summit knoll.
Our descent was down a grassy gully heading towards Lough Nagannee which might not be the safest option in winter. On reaching more level ground it was a straightforward walk west to the Kerry Way where we paused to mop our brows before continuing on to Peakeen.
