Useful though not gracious spur of Crohane.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, simon3,  17 Feb 2014
Crohane SW, the SW spur of Crohane, can be reached from the informal but traditional parking at W03678454 A 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. Start up the hill from around W0391 8151 B. It should take about 1h30 to reach the top using this route provided you don't spend too long gaping at the unusual scenery.

An alternative route is to go via Crohane. There is a farmhouse at the southern end of the road, (Point W042 851 C) where the hillwalking-friendly farmer will allow you to park. Take the track behind the outbuilding for about 100m and then cross a gate to take you directly up the spur to the NW of Crohane. The ascent takes 1.5 hours. From the summit head directly south for 500m down a steep but firm grassy slope then turn SW and ascent a fairly gentle rise for 750m to take you to the SW top’s highest point, which is marked only by a handful of white rocks. There are great views over Lough Guitane to the NW and Crohane Lake to the south. From Crohane to the SW top takes under thirty minutes. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/525/comment/5284/
