Swamp Thing
by Peter Walker  7 Mar 2014 Eglish is a newly appointed Binnion, and it gloriously conforms to many of the more pessimistic stereotypes associated with the Sperrins. Especially given the recent weather it's distinctly reminiscent of a disastrous entry on The Great Irish Bake Off; hugely shapeless and way too moist.

I started at (512048 (Point A)) on the minor road contouring the hill's eastern flank; it's easy enough to squeeze a car off the road. The skies were somewhat grief-stricken, and my usually enthusiastic partner-in-crime Mr Neelix T. Dog seemed much more interested in having a snooze in the back of the BMW. Undaunted, I hopped over the gate and sallied forth along the track marked on the map. This was certainly less vegetated than the surroundings, but it didn't seem noticeably less wet (i.e. it was saturated). I persisted with it for a few hundred metres before just gritting my teeth and heading straight for the highest point on the skyline. About ten minutes of squelching and swearing led to a fence junction (easily climbed over) beyond which lay the summit area. The map suggests the views to be reasonably open to west and east...someone blessed with better weather may be able to verify that on the ground.

I attempted to return much the same way, but the track I've uploaded suggests I didn't. Just over half an hour after leaving it I was back at the car, a bit cross and deeply wet following involuntary immersion in a bog hole. Evidently the dog knows more about making hillwalking pleasurable than I do.
Point A: C512 048
