Previously a drivable track led most of the way to this nondescript top, but this has now deteriorated and driving it is not advisable. There is parking for 1 car at the side of the road at A (Q63745 05109). Walk up the zigzagging stony track as far as B (Q64232 05838). From here it is only a 300m walk up a gentle slope to the highpoint. The summit is unmarked and unremarkable, but offers fine views.

Whereas Cummeen is a small hill with a fantasitc view surrounded by bog, Knocknakilton (spelled with an extra 'n' on the OS map) is just bog. Recommended for peak baggers or peat boggers only. Could be included as part of a Cummeen-Knocknakilton-Dromavally horseshoe walk but it would never become a classic. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/723/comment/3256/

So first thing to note about Knocknakilton is it is covered in a mist more times than not, I needed to walk it so I could figure out a route and it took a couple of attempts. I walked it by turning off at the crossroads on the N86 go up a small road to a crossroads (park up). Then take the right into the woods.

It is tricky to figure out which route. Here is what I suggest, follow the zig zag do not take the right into the woods. Take the next right. Follow that zig zag you come to a Y jct take the left. Then keep going straight up (the whole thing should not take more than an hour). If you hit the radio tower (I advise you not to get to close) you took the wrong turn.

If you keep going straight you will hit a gate that leads directly into the bog. Turn right (be careful of the ditch) and walk to the fense. Travel along that till you reach the peak. You will be surprised how quick it gets covered in a mist. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/723/comment/14748/
