A worthwhile approach to the Ox Mountains highest point. Started at a junction of tracks on the Sligo Way near the Kingsmountain Windfarm where there is plenty of parking. Followed track south to Owenduff River which was crossed into the Owenduff Nature Reserve. Followed the ridge south past the higher of the Belcloghy Loughs and on up to Spot Height 490m (Eamonns Top?). Dropped to the saddle at the head of the valley (where there are signs warning of underground electric cables) and then climbed Knockalongy SW Top (Knockacappul?) (521m). Continued to Knockalongy trig (544m). From here the spur of Grangebeg Barr / Ballygreighan Barr was followed above the windfarm before crossing some fences to drop down to the Sligo Way north of the windfarm. Returned to start via the Sligo Way trail.
