There is enough space for 2-3 cars to park at Gl'var (C252 341)
, by an old mass rock on the minor road south east of Knockalla. From here follow the road back towards the R247, till you meet a lane way at B (B (C247 336))
and follow this lane up hill. Where the track swings round towards the Knockalla Loughs, pick you line (left) up hill to Knockallas west summit. Views are superb from the summit, return towards the lochans (there is an all terrain vehicle tracks over the summit area), but choose your line as there is a small bluff and a short but blocky band of small boulders to avoid , right beside the first lough. You can now follow a track towards the twin summit, which ends on its upper slopes and then follow a faint path up to the summit.
On the way there, the space between the tops and small ring contours frame various Donegal mountains and beaches well, have you camera ready!. There is another track which you glimpse from time to time as well, which may be worth investigating. From the second summit, descend straight down hill, taking care to turn a few minor outcrops on the way. You should see the stations of the cross on your left, as you approach an old stone wall and cross a wire fence. You want to be heading towards a lane by an old ruined farm house at roughly C (C256 349)
. As you approach you reach a wire fence, turn right and follow this and again when it takes a turn towards the lane. Cross open ground , with the fence on your left now and walk towards the ruined farmhouse, where you will find a gate onto the lane. Follow this lane down on to the minor road, by a church, where it is a short walk back to the car. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/884/comment/4627/
