Track through Glen Bernera, from S. Left track at small quarry & battled through deep heather/grass & went on to a steep grassy rake/gully. Impressive hill.ger21/05/2019
Parked by road opposite side to beach, Up Glen Bernera and up by quarry to trig pt, then to summit. Descent along atv track following power cable (an easier ascent). With PM.CJM20/05/2019
Parked up close to the beach just before the bridge at 809206. Walked past Bernera farm to the quarry and then straight up to the trig. From the real summit descended to the forest track following the cable to 827220. In hindsight an ascent from here may be easier if you don't want to visit the trig. With CM. 3 hour return.bolton20/05/2019
Via Bealach Luachrach, taing in the trig afterwards before heading off NW to pick up Druim na Leitire.Smudge11/05/2019

Track from Bernera beach. Past some dreadful agricultural detritus and into the woods. Thankfully the trees are not so closely planted that it is not impossible to pick a way through to the open hillside. Great views of Sound of Sleat.Martin R15/02/2012
From the Skye ferry pointBLACKHILL19/05/2011
Parked by the beach. On Bernera track around into forest and a steady gain in height. A mile further on the track I could see a clear way through trees to open moor. Heavy going up and down through swamp, tall heather and hidden rocks to find old fence posts to Vanessa 9750 at 15.50. Sharply down and up again about 100' to given top at 16.00. No cairn.arranc13/07/2006
