Easy Access from the East
by thomas_g  5 Oct 2013
There is a sheep fence which runs all the way from Boughil via Cnoc na gCapall which makes for a handy handrail regardless of the weather. The ascent of Bascadh from the east looks worse than it is, but care is still required when it's wet. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/284/comment/15214/
