Picture: The final stretch to the summit
 
An easy option on Foyleside
by Peter Walker  20 Jun 2011
For the chronically lazy who lack the moral fibre to climb Binevenagh from its foot (in my defence it had been a couple of days of minimal sleep and maximal sore throat) it can be climbed in a more perfunctory fashion by turning off the road across the mountain's NE slopes at (705 314 C) then driving up to the car park by the shore of Binevenagh Lake (691 307 D). From here bear round the NW end of the lake (the right as you look) on obvious trods. Keep to the right of a conspicuous hummock, and maintain roughly the same direction (with a very slight descent) to reach a fence, which can be followed up to the skyline and summit with its pillar; this route should keep you on paths all the way (shortcuts cost more energy).

With the top gained, it would be criminal not to explore the main attractions of this dramatic little peak on the return, and hanging a little left after the initial drop down by the fence will take you to the edge of the escarpment...a less berserk version of the Quiraing on the Isle of Skye.
