Route taking in the two Peakeens and Knockanaguish using the Kerry Way. Begins from roadside parking at the Gowlane crossroads V91746 75183. A day of continuous rain and very little visibility.

Quite tortured ground hereabouts - I expected Peakeen itself to be almost a Sunday stroll kind of place, but the approach is not straightforward, requiring threading your way through crags on the ascent. Making your way towards the West Top involves negotiating a descent through very broken ground. At one stage, I found myself above a substantial drop unexpectedly and had to reroute around it. So take care here in bad weather. From the West Top, I contoured under Peakeen back to the Kerry Way, before heading for Knockanaguish, my final approach being from around Lough Nagannee over some very steep ground. From there back to the comfort of the Kerry Way and to the car.

Overall a nice 3 hour walk made much harder than it should be by the weather.
