Cnoc an Stualaire / Crockastoller is a townland in the parish of Gartan. Crockastroller on the Discovery map sheet 6 is a mis-spelling. The correct form appears on sheet 1.   Cnoc an Stualaire is the 856th highest place in Ireland. Cnoc an Stualaire is the second most southerly summit and also the second most westerly in the Donegal Central area.

Resplendent views from a small hill
by three5four0  23 May 2010
A fine view point indeed. From the Bluestacks to Slieve League & SlieveTooey round to Slieve Snaght, Bingorms, Drumnalifferny with Errigal poking over them to Moylenanav. Worth the long walk out for the view alone and not another walker in sight anywhere! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/743/comment/5818/

Hot day on Crockastroller
by Wilderness  1 Jul 2018
Beautiful views of the Bluestack mountains and the surrounding area.
I started my walk from the car park at Lough Barra and made my own way to the top of Moylenanav summit. I then walked the horseshoe in clockwise direction until I reached Crockastroller. From here I made my own way back to Lough Barra passing the small Croaghanarroo hill on my left.
The route passes by so many peat hags and some deep boggy ground in places, so be careful!!!
It was very hot and the horseflies were out on full force; they were an annoyance but they didn't ruin my day. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/743/comment/19957/

No Crock of gold on this one
by eamonoc  23 Jan 2022
Up for a few days walking in Donegal, visited Moylenanav and took a look at Crockastoller away in the distance and decided to take the long trek out to it, headed towards west shoulder of Crocskakallabgh and dropped down steeply to an extremely wet boggy col riven with numerous peat hags, every step took complete concentration as the going was very wet and rough eventually reached drier ground closer to the top of Crockastoller 7km from starting point. A very remote top surrounded on all approaches by very boggy rough wet ground. Headed off in a northerly direction towards minor top Croaghacullin 435m OS sheet 6, the first km was over stony dry ground only to be followed by another km through torturous terrain where again peathags abound, steps carefully taken eventually lead to the stony top of Croaghacullin, followed by another wet 2km back to the start point. A tough very demanding 13km walk in the very wet Glendowan Mts. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/743/comment/23391/
