Picture: Knockanoughanish from the west.
This is a rough quiet twin to the better known Knockatee. It has it's own charms of quietness and remoteness. It has great views over Kenmare Bay and into Glentrasna.
An obvious way to reach it is to start from the west at A (V78212 60043) which is also an access point for Knockatee. There are several fences in the general area however if when you start out you stick to the left of the fence you should only find one to cross (as of 2016). There are other places to start from the R571 such as from the south of the top.
The summit area is commonage and there is active sheep farming in the area for example to the south. As mentioned previously by choosing your route you can avoid crossing fences into farmland.
The actual top area has two peaks the most northerly of which appears to be the higher; it has a small cairn on it.

It's very much a Kerry mountain...
by Conor74 23 Aug 2010
Knockanaoughanish is miles within the Kerry border. The county bounds helpfully follows the main spine of the Cahas, from the top of Hungry Hill up along past Derryclancy and on to Knockowen, Cushnaficulla and Baureragh - I say helpfully because it kinda makes geographical sense and it looks right! As one walks between those mountains there are a lot of cairns along the route between the peaks, and not just at the summits themselves, so I assumed they were used for delineating the county bounds in the areas between those heights.

Even the county bounds on the Ardgroom side runs from the top of Hungry Hill to its highest neighbours to the north, the mountains at the back of the 'Pocket'. So the top of the range was the dividing line on all sides in the Beara peninsula.

Indeed, the Diocese of Kerry incorporates all of the Cahas, as it takes in all the Beara peninsula. I had heard that the only reason the Beara peninsula was split at all and was not wholly allocated to Kerry was because nationalist feeling always ran high there so they though that to split it between two administrations would dilute this feeling. Of course that may be myth, and there may be a wholly more boring explanation.

Oh and finally there is a Knockanaguish mountain quite near, outside Kenmare in the Mangerton group. Clearly 'hills of loneliness' were popular round these parts. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/858/comment/6050/

paddyhillsbagger on Knockanoughanish
by paddyhillsbagger 3 Aug 2009
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: mountainviews.ie/summit/858/comment/3979/

A hill to combine with Knockatee
by three5four0 10 Aug 2010
Climbed after an ascent of Knockatee and from the same start point at L Gowlán (V78175 60165).

Climbed up the grassy hillside, crossing fences at B (V78631 60191), C (V78841 60248) & D (V79175 60258), with short sections of tall ferns and reeds between the fences. Follow the fence over Drombohilly and then steeply up the final slopes, past a sheep thats managed to strangle itself in the wire fence, and finally to the summit. Again, the views are superb from this small hill, and all you have to do now is not fall onto the sheep carcass, on your steep initial descent off Knockanoughanish.

Save the great views for a nice day!
by ciarraioch 4 Oct 2011
Thanks to three5four0 for his helpful posting on this - see below. A handy extension from the top of the road to the south of Knockatee, we did this in drizzle on a 'soft' February afternoon. Some (very) low grade scrambling in places. Saw absolutely nothing on top and regretted our rash decision to take this one in, after having already climbed Knockatee earlier in the afternoon. The name, Hill of Loneliness, seemed apt indeed. But on the way back, the cloud lifted somewhat revealing majestic views down along Kenmare Bay. A grand walk on a fine day I would say.
