Small hill, big views
Short Summary created by wicklore,  13 Apr 2014
Crocknaneeve enjoys a position which gives excellent views south across to the Errigal-Aghla ridge of hills and the mighty whaleback summit of Muckish. It also allows lovely views at sunset on clear evenings out to sea and nearby Bloody Foreland. One approach from the north is as follows: Use the minor road at B 87888 33001 A to reach a junction of a bumpy track at B87820 32438 B. A few hundred metres up this track will bring you to the summit area. There is a large cross and altar near the summit, and there are Stations of the Cross along the road and around the hill.

From the south find a small abandoned white farmhouse just alongside the minor road around B873316 C, with room for one car nearby. From there it is a quick, easy ascent on open ground up to a flat area,; then a short stroll through boggy, uneven terrain to reach the road. Follow it for one or two hundred metres until you meet the road/track junction mentioned above. This will lead you straight to the summit and the cross.

There appears to be access issues on one of the minor roads to the north of the hill at B87447 32700 D, where a resident stated that she didn’t want anyone – local or visitor- using the road. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1343/comment/15587/
