Onzy: Track 2340 in area near Boughil, Dunkerron Mountains (Ireland)
West of Moll's Gap
Length: 7.5km, Creator time taken: 3h20m, Ascent: 602m,
Descent: 599m

Places: Start at V85115 77057, Boughil, Cnoc na gCapall, Bascadh, end at Start

Route over Boughil, Cnoc na gCapall and Bascadh, beginning at Barfinny Lough.

The standard route here would probably be to cover these three hills and add Knocklomena before descending to the road and returning to the start point, or, I suppose returning over the hills again.

Faced with some time pressure, and finding the complex terrain, particularly between Cnoc na gCapall and Bascadh very time consuming, I called a halt at Bascadh and contoured under Cnoc na gCapall on the return.

There is a handy fence which can be followed right from Barfinny Lough all the way along the tops.
