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'.   Cruach Mhín an Fheannta is the 648th highest place in Ireland.

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!
