Small hill, big views .. by group   (Show all for Crocknaneeve) Picture about mountain Crocknaneeve in area Donegal NW, Ireland
Picture: Beautiful sunset with Bloody Foreland in silhoutte
Road was blocked by a frustrated resident
by wicklore  13 Apr 2014
June 2012. Having earlier climbed Bloody Foreland I decided on a last minute jaunt up Crocknaneeve. As the light was fading I took advantage of a minor road/ potholed track to reach a point just below the summit. I left the car at B87820 32438 B and walked the short couple of hundred metres up to the summit. The summit area is heather and bog, and has a large cross and an altar. The cross can be powered up and illuminated by dozens of bulbs attached to it, at special religious events I presume. The views from this hill are fabulous, especially at sunset. To the south the whole range from Errigal to the Aghla’s was glowing a beautiful pink as its quartzite caught the last of the suns rays. To the west the setting sun cast Bloody Foreland into silhouette while the sky and sea glowed orange and pink. This is definitely a hill to walk at sunset!

Be warned – when I drove back down I decided to complete the loop of the minor road. I had started on the minor road no problem at B 87888 33001 A. However when I came down at the other end of the road at B87447 32700 D This grid reference in the text is shown as point D on the Detail Map above'>B87447 32700 D D I found a car parked in the middle of the little road, blocking my way. The main road was about 30 feet away. I waited patiently but no one appeared. I knocked on the nearby house and had a difficult conversation with the resident. She told me that this end of the road is not public and that I would have to go back the way I came. I asked her about the large Stations of the Cross points that were situated along the road and asked was it not a public road as clearly it’s well-used for this purpose. She said no, it’s not public, and that she parks her car there to keep people from going up this way. The road is marked as a yellow minor road on the map and would have the appearance of being public. However I had no choice. The main road was literally 10 metres away but I had to turn tail and drive the potholed and difficult 2km back to where I had started. Clearly there are local issues here and this blow-in wasn’t going to get involved! Perhaps this issue will resolve itself to the satisfaction of everyone at some point, but until then avoid trying to head up at B87447 32700 D This grid reference in the text is shown as point D on the Detail Map above'>B87447 32700 D D, and use the other end of the looped road for access instead.
