Much nicer hill than expected - peat hag channels ran more or less in the direction of travel (from road end to NE, near Heylor). Wild moorland - lots of lochans in view.ger08/06/2019
From Haylor up to Gersfield water, then White Grunafirth, Back to car then drive to Collafirth hill and up Ronas hill for 37th time.Neil Fraser06/09/2018
A surprisingly easy and pleasant walk from Heylor, parking by the ruined cottage complete with Plastic Pig. Steeply up to a bump, weave slightly down across peat hags, easily on gravelly/rocky areas, then up mossy ground to the summit, with fine views. Excellent views of the red cliffs falling from Ronas Hill into Ronas Voe.Gill25/08/2018

An evening ascent as we were camped at Breawick. Parked at the end of the road north of the summit and walked through a couple of gates to the top. Good views of Ronas Voe and evidence of a flooded cairn on top.mindlessflogger24/08/2016
