Parked at 738086 (only room for one car), in a small bay cut out of the side of the hill on the minor road for Boviel, off the A6. You have to park tight into the bay to allow for vehicles turning. A couple of metres down from the bay is a large stile for crossing the fence, from which you can walk up hill or follow the fence, for a very short distance, back past your car to where the bog track reaches the road end (by a gate), and then follow the track up hill past a small cairn. As eflanaga points out, it is a rather unspectacular summit with old overgrown peat cuttings covering the summit area with one small but deep bog hole fenced off. The views however are good, and over reward you for very little uphill effort from your parked car.

We continued over to Carn Hill and again eflanaga's description of the terrain is spot on, the views out over the Roe Valley compensating for the final section through bog.

The chambered grave, marked on the map (730077 D) beside the minor Boviel road, is worth stopping at too. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/607/comment/3535/
