Repeat ascent, this time including clockwise round of Hirta's humps, from Village Bay. This time the summit was just above the cloud base but the sun made intermittent appearances through the mist.Viewfinder16/09/2015
Sailed out of Leverburgh on Enchanted Isle for three day Kilda trip. Weather too rough to land Boreray so into Village Bay to pitch tents then wander around island. With Jenx, Martin and Pete M. >Oiseval >Conachair >Mullach Mor >Clageann Mor >Mullach Bi >Mullach Bi North Top and back to village, great circuit, clear views to Soay and Boreray.nordicstar16/09/2015
Anticlockwise circuit, misty from @ 330m, below dry and sunny. Clear in 1979 on a previous visit.iangalbraith16/09/2015

Bagged on a circuit of six Hirta TUMPs on a sunny afternoon.Dugswell217/09/2014
Came around from Mullach Bi via Mullach Mor. It's interesting that the trig is 200m down the S ridge and some 54m lower than the summit.Chris Peart17/09/2014

fabulous circuit wander in calm almost windless day over Hirta with Martin Richardson, on my first visit to St Kilda. Along village street, up the winding road to the west over Claigeann Mor to Mullach Bi and NW out to An Campar then east down across the valley and up to Mullach Mor across to Conachair down south to the trig and round by cliffs out to Oisebhal and back to the village.

Start of 3 day visit to this region courtesy of Seaharris (arranged by Alan Holmes). A fine afternoon of walking the ridges.Smudge26/09/2013
Lady Luck was certainly on my side for this island visit. Not only did I get out there on my first attempt, but also had mirror flat seas and wall to wall blue skies into the bargain.Alex C25/05/2012
From village (12:30) through lovely valley with arctic skuas to gap - huge cliffs - and then steeply NW to top. Buzzed by great skuas (up to 5 at a time) especially on descent. Golden plovers on road near mastdbb29/06/2011
Transport by Kilda Cruises. Spectacular topography. World Heritage village desecrated by modern military eyesores. Ascent via NE ridge, aggressive dive bombing skuas. Continued over Mullach Mor.Viewfinder31/05/2010
With the Marhofn group organised by Brent. Brilliant weather. Up from the village before breakfast and met Ken W. Easy tarmac most of the way.Eddie14/09/2009
