Started out by the derelict church at Galway's Bridge V914 803 B with the plan to do a loop walk taking in

Knockanaguish, Knockrower and Shaking Rock. It's a bit further from this side as opposed to the Kenmare side, but

more scenic. The walk south along the Old Kenmare Road is nice and gentle and a good warm up to the 331 height

between Peakeen and Knockanaguish. Should take about 45-60 mins. Hopped the fence and made the gradual climb up the

grassy slopes to Lough Nagannee. From here you can take the direct route up the obvious gully, follow the fence, or

like me wuss out and take the slightly less steep slopes round the NW side. I descended by retracing my steps a bit

before heading NE down to Cummeenslaun Lake and joing up with the old green road heading N. The more adventurous

could probably descend directly E from the top. N will take you straight off the cliffs. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/436/comment/3855/
