This is one of a number of Donegal hill names in which the element cró (which normally means 'a hollow' or 'a sheep-pen') has apparently become confused with cruach ('stack').   Cró Bheithe is the 1116th highest place in Ireland.

Picture: Looking SW. High point is small mound immediately left of the boulder.
 
A short scenic walk.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  3 Nov 2011
From Dunglow take the N56 S and then go left (E) on to the R252. At B812 091 A (opposite the west end of L. Sallagh), go left on to a minor road and follow along to B834 100 B. There is room to park near a metal gate with a sign on it advising of access to a walking route. Once through the gate follow the track N heading for a small col high up on the ridge straight ahead. Once the track ends continue up in the same direction over a couple of grass covered boggy areas to gain the col B83157 11307 C. A short distance along B83117 11475 D go left (NW) and follow along a short way to L. Doo B83072 11599 E. Go up steeply SW to the summit. The stone cairn is not the high point. The top is a peatty mound beside a large boulder B82791 11423 F. Return by way of ascent. Total distance 4.25k easily covered in under two hours. To shorten the route, at B 832 114 G go left (W) up the slope to the top. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/937/comment/5696/
