Confused
by sandman  19 Nov 2012
Confusion arises over this hill and its neighbour Crockaulin which is app 3.5 km away. It was only when Simon explained that the Mountain View surveyor discovered that Crocknasmug was higher thus removing Crockaulin under the current prominence rules.
Crocknasmug is best climbed by way of the Inishowen Head Loop. Trailhead 23 of the National Looped Walks - parking in the car park beside Stroove Lighthouse and walking in a clockwise direction - turning left at C6618044014 D to the summit which is marked by a cross of 4" concrete blocks. Enjoy the views and return back to marked way, including trip to summit app 9km walk. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/928/comment/14878/
