Having just bagged Knocksculloge, I headed NW, following a substantial track all the way down to S11780 07951 starA, where the track forks sharply. I turned left for 100m until I reached a rusty gate. Crossed this to follow a track along the edge of the forestry for another 100m, leading to another track. Walked SE for a bit along this until I found a spot where I could ascend the steep bank and then proceeded directly south for about 500m to reach summit. The final part of this was rough going, over knee-deep heather and uneven ground. The summit is (almost) marked by a pile of stones, but a single pointy rock a few metres away marks the actual high point. This was the last summit in a day's hillwalking of what I named after the Motown group, The Four Tops...Knocknasheega, Broemountain, Knocksuclloge and Knocknanask. I started the first two at S131 065 starB and the second pair a short distance away at S128 065 starC. FYI did all four in just over 4 hours.
