After my wife complaining of being abandonned alone on our holiday and a washout of a walk the previous day on Coomnahida, I was allowed only a short climb before breakfast. I choose Knockanoughanish as it was near our accomadation, hadn't been logged before, and I liked the way the main road to Kenmare rounded it's base. I parked the car at The Shrine to Our Lady on the R571 and basically headed straight to the top from that point. It's a steep, rugged climb over rocky outcrops and marshy ground with thick vegetation despite the many sheep around. Once on top you can admire the magnificent views of Kenmare River over to Iveragh as well as the many hills around Healy Pass on Beara. I had a sandwich to recoup from my toils to the top before returning back down. A very satisfying climb. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/858/comment/3979/
