The Blue Stack Mountains or Bluestack Mountains, also called the Croaghgorms (Irish: na Cruacha Gorma, meaning "the blue stacks"), are the major mountain range in the south of County Donegal, Ireland. They provide a barrier between the south of the county, such as Donegal Town and Ballyshannon, and the towns to the north and west such as Dungloe and Letterkenny. The road between the two parts of the county goes through the Barnesmore Gap.
The highest mountain in the range is Croaghgorm, which is 674 metres high. Nearby summits include Ardnageer (642 m), Croaghanirwore (548 m), Croaghbarnes (499 m), Croaghblane (641 m), Croaghnageer (571 m), Croveenananta (476 m), Gaugin Mountain (565 m), Lacroagh (403 m), Lavagh More (671 m) and Lavagh Beg (650 m). Silver Hill (600 m), is the smallest mountain in the British Isles to meet the 600 m threshold for a Simms classification (see, List of mountains of the British Isles by height).
