From the south, there is parking for one or two cars at W124 77. Follow the wide track up and past some forestry for about 700m, until you come to farmland. If there is a farmer about ask permission to proceed up the grassy, gently rising slope. A couple of faint tracks assist in the ascent. The ground becomes a bit rougher - marshy, heather - around A (W124 786), but is still easily navigable. The summit is marked by a substantial cairn, although you will have to clamber over a barbed wire fence to reach it. There are fine views of the Paps to the north.

From the south, parking available for only one car at InMore WdN (W124 775). Proceed uphill from junction with local road in a NNW direction along a rough stone covered road until you come to a six bar field gate on the right at B (W12277 78058). Climb gate and continue to walk uphill across open grass/peaty farmland to summit point. Stone cairn marks the summit adjacent to a post and wire fence running along the County Cork/Kerry border. From the summit enjoy magnificent views across the Derrynasagart Mountain (Cnoic Dhaire na Sagart) range. Climb and return time to car takes approx. 1.5 hrs. Linkback:

In the mists of time

The night before had been frosty, the sun rising to blue skies that quickly burned off the icy coating, and making an early start, I was blessed by the sight of the landscape shrouded in ghostly mists. The pic shows the rising sun over a misty river close to Knockbwee. Linkback:
