The long, narrow summit of Knocknagorraveela offers several points as candidates for its highest point, but someone has decided that this one, marked by a pile of stones, is the winner. Interesting top, with lots of craggy rock outcroppings speckled with pools of water, though the views are a little limited. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/441/comment/4044/
