The Bearhaven copper mines, located to the west of Knockoura on the low but rugged hills above Allihies, were run by the Puxley family of Dunboy. Daphne du Maurier relocated them on Hungry Hill for her novel of the same name.   Knockoura is the highest hill in the Slieve Miskish area and the 599th highest in Ireland. Knockoura is the second most easterly summit in the Slieve Miskish area.

Hello Beara!
by TommyV  2 Nov 2018
It's possible to drive all the way to the masts at the top of Knockgour, or however far you feel comfortable on this twisty farm track. As I was in the wifes car and not my own, I decided to drive most of the way and I parked at the second last hairpin bend at around 400 metres. A short walk will bring you to the masts at the top of Knockgour. From here it's about a kilometer over to Knockoura along a rough track. Great views of both sides of the Beara Peninsula for little effort. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/485/comment/20158/
