Planned my approach using route described on BBC show blueprint : http://www.bbc.co.uk/blueprint/offthebeatentrack/binevenagh.shtml. Started off at St Aidans church and well (C678315 A) From the well go right and up steps at the corner of the graveyard, where the forest path starts. This was a nice walk with shafts of sun beaming in through the trees. Mountain bikers had been at work with loads of ramps and stuff on display throughout the forest path. After a 15 min walk the forest opens out to the large grassy embankment underneath the impressive cliffs. This is quite steep and takes a bit of effort getting up to the crags below the cliff. Veered off from the blueprint route at this point. Found a narrow gulley between two cliffs which looked passable. Had to take er canny as the steep ground was covered with loose debris. Luckily there was enough grass and rock, hand and foot holds to eventually clamber onto the large grassy Binevenagh top. Came up opposite the lake which had a few people fishing at it, obviously must be stocked. A glider was circling round the whole time I was on the summit. Dandered south along the cliff edge and then east to the cairn summit with trig pillar. Glad Binevenagh is now on MV, for 385m the view is good value per metre, particularly down to the magilligan foreshore, inishowen, sperrins and antrim hills. Retraced my steps and then followed the blueprint track back down. This took me to the end of the cliff run, into binevenagh forest (C697317 B). The path then drops quite steeply downwards in a NW direction. Coming to a forest track I turned left and walked back underneath the towering cliffs. This track runs out after a while but picked up on another one lower down which took me almost back to the point where i had emerged from the lower forest. Then back to the church, completing the route in a good 2 hours. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/860/comment/3333/
