Reached from Boviel (see for previous leg in 'Benbradagh Ridge walk). Leaving Boviel's unremarkable top one as the now obligatory fence to cross and a long heavy trek across extremely wet/boggy ground towards the road (described by 'thisbliss'). Passed quite a few concrete bases (presumably for pylons) and a lot of disregarded parts and wire, which has to be a hazard for sheep, not to mention unwary walkers who trip over it! Reached the road IC 72827 10391 Bafter about 1.5K. Never was a piece of tarmac so welcome and we had the pleasure of its company for a further 650m passing through two gates, before breaking back onto open hill and the short ascent on to Benbradagh's summit. Passed a Ministry of Defence concrete marker with the inscription MOD - BS - 17 (not sure about the last digit!) on the way to the summit. The summit itself is quite disappointing until you walk right to its edge and then you see the drop down towards the valley floor. Unfortunately, the weather was still miserable, wet and low cloud, so views across the Roe Valley towards Binevenagh, Lough Foyle & Innishowen to the north and east, and into the Sperrins proper to the west were impossible Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/565/comment/2908/
