Picture: View from the E with the rest of the Boughils behind.
Park the car at Barfinnihy Lough where there is quite a large lay by A (V851 768), room for 10 cars.
Cross the fence at the northern end of the lough and climb up the steep, rocky mountainside handrailing a sheepwire fence to your left which runs all the way to the top of Boughil. The fence then continues on to Cnoc Na Capall
Alternatively, it is possible to start as described but skirt Boughil and go direct to the col between Boughil and Cnoc na gCapall and then straight up.

Handrail city
by thomas_g 5 Oct 2013
Walked this after 2 days of fairly intense rain, so it was slippery in spots, especially on the steeper parts, but the sheep fence is a constant companion all the way to from Boughil to the east to Bascadh to the west. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/214/comment/15213/

Tread carefully
by Onzy 22 Nov 2013
The descent west from Cnoc na gCapall and the subsequent ascent of Bascadh is over very confused terrain. While the fence is your handrail for the entire march over these tops, it will be necessary to depart a few metres from its comfort from time to time to avoid unfeasibly steep ground. This was particularly so today, a beautifully clear and sunny day, but very cold, with a lot of the rock carrying a slick coating of ice and a lot of the wet ground frozen. I found myself very wary of my footing particularly on the descent. Walk slowly and carry a big stick! Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/214/comment/15262/
