Whilst visiting Knockbane last weekend, this otherwise mundane summit did have an item of interest: at the base of the trig pillar was a small metal marker with the inscription "EI/G4WSB/P".
A quick google revealed this to be part of a project called Summits To The Air Database, a programme that encourages radio amateurs who enjoy hill walking to take their radios with them and operate them from mountain tops (see http://www.sota.org.uk).
