Notes on name: The form Cruach Mhín an Fheannta from logainm.ie is supported by James O’Kane (Séamas Ó Catháin), who interprets it as 'the stack of the high field of the flaying' in his place-name survey of the parishes of Inishkeel and Kilteevoge. The Discovery map has a slightly different version: Cruach Mhín an Neanta, apparently 'the stack of the high field of the nettles'.

Picture: Croveenananta from the S.
Leave the R253 at A (G968 963) and take a minor road going S and then SW to LeathCrua (G93724 93563) some 5km along. Parking for several cars. Cross the road and walk N up a track which forms part of the Slina Finne waymarked way. Although the track is at times quite indistinct on the ground make for the col up ahead between Lacroagh and Croveenananta. On reaching B (G93588 94677) at the col turn right and climb up E initially crossing a lower top C (G93946 94734) before continuing on for another 150 metres to the ummarked grass coverd high point D (G94142 94713). Return by way of ascent or drop down around the SW flank of the hill to E (G93664 94239) to pick up the outward track of the Sli na Finne and go left back to the start.

End of the day job
by jimgraham 14 May 2010
Having recently walked the main Bluestacks ridge, starting at a point noted by others, I found myself with enough time to pick off CMN as well. Walked up Sli na Finne from the Reelan Valley, well marked but boggy long distance path to the west of the top, then picked up the ridge. Had to (carefully) cross one post and wire fence but that was the only obstacle.
The summit offered a good panorama of the main ridge climbed earlier in the day. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/528/comment/4726/

A Small Wilderness
by Aidy 20 May 2016
The first of a four summit walk, proceeding to Lacroagh, Croaghugagh and Croaghubbrid. I started at Harry Goodman's point B, heading for the Croveenananta side of the col with Lacroagh, then turning east over a minor summit and on to the top. The route over the four tops is a great little walk, not too difficult or long, but with great views and the feeling of being in a really wild, isolated area. In addition to all the other views, I loved the new perspective down on Lough Fhia and the steep sided Croagh Hatain (a non MV hill). As usual in the Bluestacks, they do make you work a little, with some boggy stretches, and some deep heather to wade through. Seems to make it more satisfying somehow though.

Varied scenery - and weather.
by Colin Murphy 13 Jul 2023
On a day of wildly changing weather, one moment I enjoyed splendid views in all directions under sunny conditions, then the skies would darken and the heavens batter me from high, only for the sun to appear again 10 minutes later. It went from 22 deg C at the start of the walk to about 12 with a cutting wind on higher ground. Such are the pleasures and pains of hillwalking in Donegal!
