no bovver!
by slemish  13 May 2011
This somewhat underrated hill has recently had a name change on MV with 'Top' being added to its previous name. Much like its neighbour Benbradagh which I climbed earlier in the day, Boviel Top's splendid views can be attained for very little effort as there is a road which take you most of the way up it. There is space for one vehicle to park at the top of the Boviel road off the Glenshane pass (738086 A). Climb over the gate at the end of the road and follow the grassy track up past an old telegraph pole and on to the 454m summit. Like so many of the Sperrins, the summit is unmarked on the ground. It was a case of finding what looked like the highest peat hag and standing on it. In contrast to the dull and rather boggy climb, the view from the top of Boviel was very good indeed, particularly to the higher Sperrins. On the NW horizon I could just make out the distinctive profiles of Muckish and Loughsalt Mountain in Donegal through the haze while Slieve Croob was peeking through the gap between Carntogher and Corick Mountain. All in all this hill is worth visiting for the views but I would only climb it on a good day. I returned to the car by way of ascent, an easy 20 minute trip.
