Last hill in a day of three

Parked at the entrance to the access road, as previously mentioned by dbloke at 369696 starA. This is a busy spot, with lots of cars pulling up to look at the views or to rest their clutch, after the drive up from Clochan.

Left the wife to read her book and strode out along the track, met a farmer with many dogs all of the gun variety. He was friendly enough and was wished me well. At the main mast there was several workers about (one passed me on the track), checking the mast no doubt for the imminent arrival of Katia. Went round a gate (to the left of the mast and track) and followed a sheep track across a col, before climbing the last few contours into the kidney shaped summit contour. Visited the summit spot height and several other small rises, before returning to the track and making my way back to the car.

Checking the GPS recorded route, as I walked back along the track, I noticed it had clocked a high point of 402 metres rather than the 395 of the maps spot height. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/849/comment/6542/

dbloke on Knocknaskereighta, 2009

Leaving Portmagee we drove up to the col at Coonanaspig (V369 697 starB) by following the Skellig Ring anti-clockwise. My guess is that this is named after the view of the Skelligs. I could be wrong. We were hoping to get another easy drive to a top by following the service road to the masts on Kilkeaveragh and then hopping over to Knocknaskereighta, but the no-entry signs gave us the impression someone would rather we didn't. We weren't brave enough to chance it anyway. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/849/comment/4146/

He Who Dares, Bags.

Speaking to someone in a pub in Valentia the previous evening I was reliably informed that the locals pay scant regard to the discouraging signage at the entrance to the service road. So the next morning, humming "Break The Law" by judas Priest, I drove up the road and parked at the transmitters, about 1.5 kilometres from the summit. Heading left around the fence I picked up a distinct track that led east over a broad bleak ridge. The summit is a featureless grassy rise, with neither cairn nor trig pillar.
I returned via the same route making a round trip of about 1 hr 20 minutes. A hill that's easier to walk than to pronounce. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/849/comment/17575/
