Cnoc na Sleá is the modern Irish form. Arguably the Classical Irish form Cnoc na Sleighe is more faithful to the pronunciation.   Cnoc na Sleá is the 1443th highest place in Ireland. Cnoc na Sleá is the second most northerly summit in the Donegal NW area.

short hill with long views
Short Summary created by slemish  5 Mar 2011
Crocknasleigh's coastal location means it punches well above it's weight in terms of views from its modest 163m summit. Much of the rugged North Donegal coastline is visible from here among an enormous swathe of Atlantic Ocean. The easiest route up is to start in the Youth Hostel car park (126425 A) and follow the track up past the hostel itself and then over open moorland to the summit cairn. There is a re-entrant (125m) on the northern side which has an interesting ruined look-out station from WWII. Crocknasleigh is one of the most photographed mountains in Ireland as it is the hill that features in the classic Atlantic Drive view as seen in Ireland tourist brochures the world over.
