Nice views of the lake
Short Summary created by thomas_g  10 May 2013
A relatively featureless top with nice views over the lake and the steep slopes of Gullaba Hill. Access is from Knockbrack S to the NW, via Coomclogherane to the east and Knocknamanagh to the south. Access from the west is possible too, but it would be fairly boggy going.
Best access is probably from the farm at V987 692 A, where with permission from the very friendly farmer, you can follow the track to the lake and then up 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).
