|Round of Ulva HP and Gometra HP from ferry. Cycled up main track to a short distance west of bothy then turned SE onto an ATV track through a new plantation. This track becomes faint but can be followed all the way up to 240m col. Main track is bumpy and poorly drained with much local up and down.||Topographer57||30/09/2019|
|On the way back from Gometra.Found a reasonably straightforward ascent from 403418 but bracken lower down.||NormanW||12/07/2018|
|After Gometra, cycling between two. Up and down from north. Hazy but some sun, warm.||Rounsfell||31/05/2018|
|Visiting Ulva with mum and dad, although they did not come up the hill with me, preferring to stick to the waymarked paths.||Grinner||09/05/2018|
|Following Gometra using track/bike. Just 100m before the Bothy found a track up the hill in recently planted native woodland. Takes you high then it joins a path next to an old wall to the Coll. Short trip over to the summit and back. Time enough for both and afternoon Langustines tea in the Ferry Boat cafe.||N.Morters||19/04/2018|
|Bikes were useful, though not easy on the rough track. Plenty of time for both hills between first and last ferry.||jenx||22/08/2016|
|From ferry (10:30) took north road along island to nearest point to summit then through waist-high damp bracken & steep heather across 2 fences. Thereafter easier over grass between crags to trig. Dry but very hazy; cloud on top. Back same route;finish 13:35. A waymarked route over both summits is advertised but didn't try this.||dbb||10/06/2016|

|Ascended from 'South Side' track via pt 204. Very thick heather and bracken in places; recommend ascending outside of summer months. Incredible views back to Mull, surrounding Islands including Rum from the summit. Descended to 'North Side' track in order to return. This would be an easier, but less interesting ascent although two rings of deer fence prtecting new plantations should ideally be avoided.||raffemeister||04/08/2014|

|Seventh TuMP of a busy warm sunny day with JimB and RichTea, 7:45 hours between the first and last ferries.||Dugswell2||07/05/2013|
|From the Ulva ferry point.||BLACKHILL||25/04/2011|
|From the ferry I took the paths to the quarry. From there I blazed a trail through at times head high bracken for what seemed like an age. For the descent I headed north to the main track and got back to the ferry in half the time||garyhoney||07/07/2009|
|With Mrs G. A 9 mile walk out from the small ferry terminal to the highest point on the little island of Ulva off the coast of Mull. Good paths for part of the way but after that it was very rough going up a water course and then over heavily heathered slopes. We were buzzed by a sea eagle twice though so worth the sweat!||jonglew||31/05/2009|
|Trig revisit, after Gometra. Decent summit, fine view. Track from NW, starting W of Bearnus, then easy slopes. Ulva ferry 9 til 5 weekdays.||RHW||24/03/2008|
|Over to Ulva at 9.45 on rutted track for about an hour. Struck off through bracken looking for animal tracks to give some help. Balder patches led up through first of 2 bands of crags. 3 deer looking startled. Found a way through 3 or 4 lines of crags, one needing hands as well as knees, and across damp flattish top of hill to Vanessa 10524 at 11.40. Ulva, Dutchman's Cap, Tiree, coll and Barra, B A'Ghraig, A'Chioch and B More in cloud, C Bheinn and B Na Sreine.||arranc||07/09/2006|
