a nice walk, but not for anyone with special mobility needs or buggies its uphill for the most part and very much a woodland trail. A peaceful walk with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.

Spectacular walk. The view from the hill far outweighs the view of the hill - simply breathtaking. Lots of history and legend surrounds this hill which definitely adds to its charm. Exceptionally beautiful- highly recommend

Knockma is an amazing walk that I would definitely recommend. It can be challenging for lazy people like myself but it is worth getting to the top for the stunning views. The adorable fairy doors scattered everywhere make it feel very magical :)

Beautiful place to walk. Not good for those with mobility issues. Locals tell me thieves are around so don't leave things visible in your car at the car park. Several signs warn of this. Lots of local legends about Knockma. No fee to enter or...More
