Not easy for a small hill
Short Summary created by wicklore,  8 Aug 2011
While Slievemeen and Slievemartin are easily accessed from the carpark at J196 174 A This grid reference in the text is shown as point A on the Detail Map above'>J196 174 A A, Crenville requires more of an effort. Sitting to the north of Slievemartin, Crenville could be described as a hill more suited to peak baggers and serious enthusiasts. This is because this hill has difficult underfoot conditions that would wear out or dissuade those who come unprepared. Those who persevere are rewarded with a sense of isolation and some good views of surrounding hills such as Tievedockeragh to the north and Shanlieve to the east as well as views along Carlingford Lough.

Crenville can be reached from Slievemartin to the south. Slievemartin is very easily reached from the car park at J196 174 A This grid reference in the text is shown as point A on the Detail Map above'>J196 174 A A following the signposted ‘black arrow’ route. From Slievemartin head north across pleasant grassy slopes to reach a fence at J204 182 B. Another few hundred metres over tussocky heather with hidden holes and tiring long grass will bring you to the unmarked summit at J207 186 C. Alternatively, from the car park mentioned, forest tracks can be used to get to J203192 D, from where it is a short (but typically tiring) haul up to the summit.
