Small but beautiful

Despite the fact that it's merely a Carn, Knockagarrane is quite the hill in terms of the challenge, the ruggedness of its upper slopes and the tremendous panoramas it offers. The starting point is only a little above sea level so expect a climb of almost 400m. As you ascend the views over Cloonee Lough Upper and Lough Inchiquin are terrific and the last stretch offers you a look at Kenmare Bay in its entirety. A very worthwhile little hill indeed.
