The top between two tops
Short Summary created by thomas_g  10 May 2013
A featureless top with lovely views, especially over the lake.
Best access is to park in the farmyard at V987 692 A (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/
