The top between two tops
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, thomas_g  31 Oct 2023
A featureless top with lovely views, especially over the lake.
Best access is to park in the farmyard at V987 692 starA (Point A) with permission from the very friendly farmer. You have the choice of going to Knockbrack first and a boggy walk over to Knockbrack S Top or head south from the farm along the good track and climb the heather strewn hill to the top.
(Be warned, conversations with the granny who lives at the farm will result in a cup of tea whether you want it or not: old style Irish hospitality). Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/591/comment/5350/

A relaxing part of the world

Easy underfoot, great views and splendid isolation. I came at this hill from Knockbrack along a gently sloping ridge with no issues to report in terms of terrain. There's a couple of small satellite dishes on top but otherwise its fairly featureless aside from a small outcrop to the east of the summit which afforded some protection from the western winds as I made inroads into my food bank. Actually, there appears to be a farm vehicle track coming up the the col between the two Knockbracks which might provide for alternative access via the friendly farmer's farm. 15 mins from Knockbrack.
