Picture: Knockreagh's view to Kilmakilloge Harbour.

In many ways the most interesting places in the Caha Mountains are to be found at the edges where glacial action has cut deep valleys and steep cliffs. On the northern side of the Cahas, the valley of Glenrastel is best known, however its smaller cousin Glentrasna is worth a visit. Knockreagh is the northern outlier of the summits circling Glentrasna.

One obvious way to reach it is by leaving the R571 road (Tuosist to Lauragh) at V805605 C. Walk up the track which goes at least as far as is marked on the 1:50k map. The track deteriorates badly towards the end, nevertheless the time I visited there were distinct tractor tracks almost to the end.
The summit is a great vantage point for views SW along the north Beara coast.
Two isolated peaks stick up out of the low plain before the inlet of Kilmakilloge Harbour. They are visible in the photo as the nearer dark lump (Knockanoughanish) and, just visible, the top on the skyline at the right (Knockatee). Though both under 400m these distinctive summits are very obvious from many parts of the Glentrasna circuit. Beyond stretches the coastline, not so visible on the murky day this picture was taken. To the left the rising ground leads to the delights of Tooth Mountain (590m) and Coomacloghane (599m). Trackback:
