A shapely Top
by three5four0  9 Oct 2011
See Barraduff Mountain and Killaha Mountain for the rest of this route.

From Killaha mtn, we retraced our steps back to the col with Barraduff Mountain and then contoured below Barraduff Mnt to reach its col with Knockeika and another fence. From this point Knockeirka looks surprisingly shapely and alluring for a 426 metre top. Follow the fence, what else!, up hill to gain the summit with its fine views of the surrounding mountain groups.

Returned to the col and this time contoured around to the South side of Barraduff Mtn - there are ATV tracks here. Here you reach the fence to Castle Rock, pass the standing stone, which could possible have actually been a stone alinement. Check out another stone not far away and if you look east or west of the standing stone, other standing stones and stone circles are marked on the map.

Follow this fence back onto Castle Rocks' summit and descend down the South west ridge back to the parking space and your car. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/709/comment/6581/
