A short ferry ride from Castletownbere and a short drive along narrow island lanes gets you to the stile at the bottom of Knockanallig. A clear path, part of the Beara Way leads up to the large cross or a short diversion leads to the summit cairn. Commanding views are had of Hungry Hill on the mainland as well as Bere Island itself. A lovely day out. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/985/comment/3994/

Bere Island Hike

View from top of Bere Island with a vantage point over all of Bantry Bay, Cahas on the left with Sheeps head on the right - surely one of the best vistas in West Cork! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/985/comment/19672/

Another wind turbine
by Conor74  3 Sep 2012
Lovely views across Beara, the Cahas and the Mishkish ranges, from Dursey right up to the Sugarloaf and across around to Sheeps Head. And great views over the island itself, the Martello Towers, the batteries of Lonehort in the distance.

And of course, a few hundred metres away...the wind turbine... A real stomach churning one too, in the middle of an area of such beauty. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/985/comment/14794/
