An initial short but steepish climb bring us to the shores of Lough Acummeen @ 170m.

We then ascend the ridge on the western side of the lake, again quite a steep climb, to reach Cummeen summit (477m). Losing 130 m in dropping down to the col below, we then ascend to Knockakilton summit (407m) before traversing across some rough and boggy ground in a NE direction. Then skirting around the lake and following the unnamed stream back to our starting point.

There are some fabulous views in all directions at different stages of the walk.
