Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, simon3,  17 Feb 2014
Crohane is an attractive member of the "Highest 100" summit list. It has great views over neighbouring Lough Guitane, Killarney with its lakes and to many of the surrounding delights such as the Paps and Carran group.
Start from the north at around W043 852 A which leads to a rough track up most of the summit or get to it via Crohane SW its SW spur of Crohane. The latter can be reached from the informal but traditional parking at W03678454 B which is at the end of an extremely potholed road reached from the N22. Go south along the pilgrims path into the extremely scenic vee between Bennaunmore and Crohane SW to the south end of L. Nabroda and then up Crohane SW.
Two large batteries which formerly powered a broadband dish have been discarded at the summit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/195/comment/4955/
