A Pleasant, Easy Walk
by Aidy  13 May 2015
I had a little bit of spare time today, and thought by taking the Curragh Road from Dungiven to gain as much height as possible by car, I might be able to squeeze in Benbradagh, Boviel Top and Carn Hill. As it turned out, I ran out of time before I could get to Carn Hill, but managed the other two. First was Benbradagh, starting from the high point on the road, where there was a large parking area. It was a short walk from there to the summit, over ground that was easy to walk on - initially on an access track for a small mast, then on level ground, with short grass, and most of the height had already been gained. Benbradagh had cut a fine figure from below, and provided great views from the top too. Particularly impressive were the views north over Donald's Hill to Binevenagh, northwest across the Roe Valley and Lough Foyle to Inishowen, southwest over Dungiven to the Sperrins, and south east to Boviel Top's steep southern slope. Its a nice guilty pleasure to cheat occasionally! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/565/comment/17984/
