Picture: Knockanallig cairn on Bere Island
paddyhillsbagger on Knockanallig
by paddyhillsbagger 3 Aug 2009
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. Linkback: 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! Linkback: 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. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/985/comment/14794/

Picture: Cross on the way to the summit.
Don't worry the island is bear free.
by TommyV 30 Oct 2018
There are a couple of great loop walks around Bere Island. Given it's size we didn't have time to complete them fully. A must is the walk to the lighthouse on the West side of the island. There is room for one car at A (V68178 43967). Over the stile and follow the track south passing one of the old military instillation's that were built by the British and set up all around the island. One or two gate hops and the track becomes more of a path all the way to the lighthouse at Ardnakinna Point B (V67226 42398). If time is on your side you can continue North East on a looped walk of the island, as time was against us we simply retraced our steps.

For anybody looking to bag the high point on Bere Island there is room to park a car at C (V71131 43660). From here follow the Beara Way South West. You will soon notice a White Cross, soon after this it's time to go left off the track at D (V70556 43408). Another couple of hundred meters should have you at Knockanallig.
