Carrane Hill is the highest point in a range of hills known as the Arigna Mountains, or as Braulieve (sometimes Brauslieve) from Ir. Braidshliabh, 'plunder mountain'. The latter name does not appear on OSI maps but is still remembered in the area. These hills straddle the Sligo/Leitrim border, except for a chunk in the south belonging to Roscommon. An early alternative name recorded in Bethu Pátraic (The Life of St. Patrick) is Sliab hÚa n-Ailella, 'mountain of the descendants of Ailill'. See Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' (pp. 183-84) for details of the festive assembly on the mountain.   Carrane Hill is the highest hill in the Arigna & Bricklieve & Curlew area and the 708th highest in Ireland. Carrane Hill is the most northerly summit in the Arigna & Bricklieve & Curlew area.

Photo taken on the afternoon of the 9th of November, 2019 in the direction of Lough Arrow and Castlebaldwin. Glad to report I made it back to my car before those rainclouds made it as far as me. Approach to these peak from Drumkeerin side is a bit of an industrial more and is a bit depressing. Nice enough views from the summit though.
