An isolated hill occupying the centre of the valley between Lough Inagh and Recess. The quarry on the southern slopes produces the famous Connemara green marble. Walks: for a route to the summit and to Bun na gCnoc, see Paddy Dillon, Connemara, 129-33.   Cnoc Lios Uachtair is the 944th highest place in Ireland.

An easy to access and navigate hill, well worth it for its central position and views in every direction. Park as previously suggested at L8530 4820 A and head north east before swinging north. The western view of The Twelve Bens with Errisbeg away to the south and Mweelrea away to the north is fantastic. The Maamturks with the passes of Maamochoige and Maamean notched into it to the east are laid out nicely too. Conditions when I reached the top meant while hazy, cloud keeping the Inagh Valley in shade and a settling sun casting a lateral light beyond the mouth of Killary combined to allow me to see as far as Clare Island and jagged Achill Head some 60km away between the flanks of Mweelrea and Garraun.
