This peak has the classic hay-stack shape which is typical of mountains whose names in cruach/cruachán. Near Lough Nabroda are some crags with rhyolite formations which, though less spectacular, resemble the organ pipe formations at the Giant's Causeway.   Crohane is the 199th highest place in Ireland. Crohane is the second most easterly summit in the Mangerton area.

I started from a small road near the Glenflesk Art Gallery (on the Glenflesk to Muckross Road) The road passes a few farms and then winds up a long way onto the shoulder of the mountain as a good bog track. You can head straight for the top when the path runs out. At one of the farms there is a dog that likes to accompany people up the mountain (a large longhaired labrador/retriever type). His owner kept him while I passed but I met him up there later all the same.
Apart from that, a lovely peak with good access, a dramatic summit, and plenty of wild land to the south and west. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/195/comment/187/
