MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Knocknamuck in area South Midlands, Ireland
Picture: The exciting summit of Knocknamuck
 
Zero charm, infinite views
Short Summary created by wicklore  25 Jul 2010
Knocknamuck is not a pretty summit with several aerials, guy wires, and a concrete hut complete with security camera at the summit. It can be reached via the brief access track starting at S31527 54926 A. Other approaches are not advised due to extensive electric fencing in the fields surrounding the summit.

What Knocknamuck lacks in charm it more than makes up for in the expansive views it offers. It is possible to see the Comeraghs, the Galtees, the Knockmealdowns, Slievenamon, the Shannon Hills, the Slieve Blooms, the Wicklow Mountains, the Blackstairs Mountains and some of the South Midlands hills. These views make the detour to Knocknamuck worthwhile. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/912/comment/5671/
