A Bit Of A Slog
by Aidy  13 May 2015
I reached Boviel Top from Benbradagh, and had been a little spoiled by the easy walking on its higher neighbour, over dry, level ground with short grass. Boviel was a different proposition. After an initial, short easy stretch, it quickly turned into one of the wettest, boggiest hills I've been on. There were numerous pools, and several deep, water-filled ditches, requiring constant little detours. Even in the best patches, the going was hard with deep tussocky grass and heather, that demanded lifting the feet high, and placing them carefully again on uneven ground. The summit itself was hard to determine, and I had to visit a few of more prominent bumps on its flattish, indistinct top to make sure I had stood at the highest point, which meant more trudging about. The flat nature of the top also cut out a lot of the views. It had been my plan to continue on to Carn Hill and return over the same route, but I was short on time, and this terrain was slow going, so I had to abandon that plan. Instead, I returned to the car, parked at the top of the Curragh Road, between Boviel Top and Benbradagh. Benbradagh had been a much more pleasant and rewarding experience, and Boviel was only really a bagging exercise, unless hills like this are character building! Maybe it would be better approached from the east. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/607/comment/17985/
