Short Summary created by simon3, jackill,  1 Nov 2012
Park the car at Barfinnihy Lough where there is quite a large lay by V 851 768 A, 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. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/214/comment/4974/
