A short hill walk in Donegal
by three5four0  16 May 2010
From the small area, where you can squeeze in a car or perhaps 2 at C091 244 D, it is roughly one and half hours return to the summit of Crockmore. We walked along the road to C091 246 E, where there is a faint path towards Lough Acrobane, mentioned in simon3's route description, crossing the river by a hidden bridge and then recrossing it to reach the bottom of the ridge to the right of the wide gully. (C09353 24910 F, C09476 24958 G, C09482 25168 H being the gps points to get to the ridge) Follow this ridge uphill, past a stick sticking out of a piece of plastic tubbing, to the first top, then a dip and the final short slope to the summit. Views are good and there was still a hint of strange colour in the approaching shower clouds, volcanic ash still about then. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/901/comment/4739/
