This peak is in the townland of Baile na Loiste / Ballynalost, parish of Clondavaddog. It is marked as Knockdonnelly on the first edition OS 6" map, but this was later revised to Crockdonnelly, no doubt to reflect the local pronunciation of cnoc, 'hill'. The second element has nothing to do with the surname Donnelly. It is from Ir. teannála, 'signal-fire'. Previously called Ballynabrocky Hill in MV.   Cnoc na dTeannála is the 1467th highest place in Ireland. Cnoc na dTeannála is the most northerly summit in the Donegal NW area.

Flattish summit with easy ascent via tracks.
Short Summary created by simon3  2 Jun 2014
Ballynabrocky gives views over the northern tip of Fanad and to much of the northern edge of Donegal and Ireland.

One place to start from is C2291 4613 A which is reached via a rough road off the main road. Ask for permission to park. Follow the rough track around the scenic Lough Hanane. Leave a wide margin to the right (West) of two houses on the SW side of the lough and using the numerous rough tracks, zigzag up the hill to the summit.

From the quartzite strewn and flattish summit ridge there are views to here to much of the north of the Fanad peninsula, its lighthouse, Rosguill & Dunaff.
From the SW end of Lough Hanane (at 95m) the view towards the Urris Hills is reminiscent of an infinity pool, with the distant SE end of the Urris Hills forming a backdrop and the intervening Lough Swilly reduced to a narrow line. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1348/comment/15592/
