This name has been misleadingly anglicised as if it contained the element cruach, 'stack'. It actually contains cró, 'sheep-pen', and it seems that the name has been transferred from a pen to the hill on which it was situated.   An Cró Mór is the 1171th highest place in Ireland.

An Cró Mór is the highest point on the Great Blasket Island. This island can be reached by ferry (when running) from the pier at Dún Chaoin and may also be approached by boat from Dingle. An Cró Mór is obtained from the slipway on the island by heading up and northward through the ruined village, passing above the three white-washed houses which are visible even from the mainland. The path levels off and swings west, eventually coming to a "Tee-junction"; go right at the “Tee-junction” and up past An Dún (the fort or rath). Continuing along the narrow path above the cliffs brings you to a rise from which you can see An Cró Mór. The path then drops down to a saddle from which An Cró is reached after a number of small stages. It is marked by a rough-concrete obelisk and on a good day offers excellent views of four of the Blasket Islands. From slipway to An Cró is approximately 1.5hours.
