Reached from Carn Hill (See for first part of Benbradagh Ridge Walk). From Carn Hill the terrain worsens (deep bog trenches) at first and then improves somewhat after crossing fence. The heavy gorse/heather dissipates and the going gets a little easier as you drop down onto col IC 74391 08475 C. After crossing another of the many fences on the route the remains of a low level wall can be followed up hill for a time as it is roughly in line with a direct bearing to Boviel's summit. Ground gets heavier as you ascend. Eventually reached the series of tracks clearly shown on OS Map, one of which wends its way up to within a short distance of the un-spectacular summit atop a peat hag. The track provides a degree of respite from the heavy underfoot conditions endured previously but peters out and deteriorates as you near the summit area. As with Carn Hill it is possible to take a minor road from the main Derry-Belfast route up to the tracks mentioned above and this would certainly make for a much easier route. Because of the incessant rain and low cloud visibility was very poor throughout. Despite this Boviel doesn't appear to have a great deal to offer for any effort expended in reaching its summit.
