Second of the day, parked due west of hill above Bay. As advised by others, kept left/north of the burn, a bit rough but not too bad, then along the ridge to the top. I made the mistake of taking a more direct route down and got into very nasty soft moss and heather- best return by outward route.Simon Winton14/03/2020
Parked at the usual place, where there's a grassy pull off inside the passing space. Up the N side of the stream on truly appalling terrain. Avoid any temptation to cross to the S of the stream; if you keep going towards the bealach N of the hill, you will come to the turf wall marked on the 1:25K map. A good path runs on this wall right to the bealach. This eases the pain significantly. A Yurt next to the Skyeskyns tannery does good tea and cake for resuscitation before the next hill.Gill29/09/2019
From 273536 poor moorland terrain which was tiring after 2 Marilyns earlier. Nice cairn and view however.NormanW05/06/2019
Raining. Nice flowers.Jon F25/05/2019

From the A850 at NG 291510. Borderline between irksome and purgatorial, which means some of the way IS purgatorial. Went straight up through very wet deep grass and heather, to get onto the more stunted vegetation on the top ASAP. Some animal tracks had a vector component in the right direction and were taken advantage of, for relief. From summit, set compass for shortest possible route back to tarmac of the B886, purgatorial deep vegetation all the way down and many leg-breaker deep holes. Substantial mag. dev. on the summit - 40 degrees !Isbjorn20/01/2019
Grass verge parking next to passing place at 27354 53647, animal tracks up the north bank of stream then more or less direct route to summit. Heather long at first but it gets better.Topographer5724/11/2018

Good view, but would never do this again. Slog from hell. Company: Soloiandesbottes16/05/2018
Shortest route. Bright sunny day, very windy and cold (beast from east). Incredibly rough ground all the way. Rounsfell28/02/2018
Considering the tiring slog the previous evening along the 2km of the ridge to Ben Geary at the northern end of the Waternish peninsula, it was pretty staggering that the terrain was so much more benign on the ridge walk here. Most puzzling and relieving as I wandered happily in the sunsine south to Beinn CVhreagach and on further to the subsidiary southern TuMP summit of Beinn na Boineide with trig pillar S9410.vegibagger31/05/2017
From Layby near high point on A850, via the trig point. Return same way...light spots of rain. Glad the hill was dry with recent dry spellN.Morters27/05/2017
From small pull-in on E side of B886 followed deer tracks, mostly stream side, to reach summit area - 60 mins to top.Chris Peart21/10/2016
With Jenx, from B886 near high point at bridge at GR 278521 with ok verge parking. Used animal tracks along stream edge to gorge feature then ditect to top. Good viewpoint.nordicstar07/02/2016
Found some useful deer tracks beside streams up to the bealach bet Marilyn and hill with trig.jenx07/02/2016
After Ben Geary. Parked at big layby halfway between Bay and Fairy Bridge. Then unremitting slog through, grass bog and heather to summit. Again views superb.Thearlaichdubh19/08/2015

Even after 8 weeks of drought the approach from the west was hard work over tall, compressible vegetation.jimbloomer22/06/2012

Started at NG 27390 53369.Faint path beside stream continues all the way to bealach between main summit and B Mheadonach. Horrible wet day, no view at all.Couldn't be bothered to go look for the trig point.Martin R26/02/2012
Parked by gravel dump. On road and up on very spongy moor. Hard going aiming for a line of crags on horizon. Cairn visible from road. Around to right across heather covered peat hags to top at 12.05. 5' high cairn.arranc15/05/2008
Parked at high point of road to south, via trig. Sunrise over Trotternish ridge.agentmancuso01/04/2007
