Not that bad

Had a go at this today using route given on walkni website starting at 7519 1124 B but found description very vague, mentions posts but never saw any. Followed stream up past ruined house with tree growing in it - hard to imagine what it would have been like to live here - up to fence and along to top of Boviel Road. Went to the end of the rough track then onto open moor, boggy but not too bad and the views make it worthwhile. Seemed to be a lot of fences to cross on the way down to American Road. Raining hard by this time so saved Benbradagh for another day. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/607/comment/18181/
