Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, CaptainVertigo,  28 Mar 2014
Turn south off the Ballybofey / Glenties road and enter the Reelan River Valley, where you will see a sign for Slí na Finne. Room for 6-8 cars at the Old School G95935 94116 A. There is an alternate parking spot just across the bridge for a couple of cars at G963 93. From there walk east a few metres and turn south descending towards the Reelan River along Sli na Finne. Cross the bridge and almost straight away turn east and follow the boggy wet track up to the ruined cottage, where you turn south and head up Glascarns Hill (from where there is a short hop to Croaghbane). Once a fence is crossed after the ruined cottage is left behind, the conditions underfoot improve and the main theme is rock - slabs and boulders. The incline is not particularly challenging and the views quickly open up in all directions, especially back to the north and to the east. Glascarns Hill is worth a stop, and in fact is just a couple of metres short of qualifying as an Arderin. Croaghbane itself has a broad summit full or boulders and rock. Lough Aduff can be very charming. Croaghbane is the ideal start point for the Bluestack 5 Arderins. Magnificient views. 1.5 hours car to top.
