Save the great views for a nice day!

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.
