Be warned that should you pay a visit to Knockbane that following your efforts through forest, heather gorse and other lovely obstacles make sure you don't fall into a substantial hole located in the cairn just behind the trig pillar. its almost covered over with vegetation and could spring a nasty surprise on an unsuspecting walker.
