An unplanned hill, but seeing as it was so close to Bidigidh decided to tack it on the end. Returned to the car (NB 0656 0732) by contouring round NW sides of Bidigidh and Cleiseabhal. Ground all very rough and broken, although fortunately dry.jonglew27/05/2018
Beautiful bright day with views to St Kilda. Cleiseabhal, Bidigidh, Oireabhal, Ulabhal, Muladal, Tiorga Beag, Tiorga Mor. Followed fine summit ridge to NE before descending S into glen. Excellent views, including towards Sron Uladal.RobertP22/05/2018

With Graham Illing. From car near main road (10:45), past power station almost to dam and followed pipeline into corrie. Up to ridge and summit. Windy. Followed ridge to Ulabhal, then NW down to col and path N for view of Sron Uladail overhang (14:45). Graham returned from here; I took a steep route SW up to ridge and over Tiorga Beag to summit (17:05; in cloud). Went briefly SE on ridge, then down steep SW slopes to path and followed this back to road. Finish 18:45.dbb19/09/2017
From Cliasmol. Cleiseabhal via SW ridge, a superb ridge walk to Bidigidh, steep ascent of Oireabhal, and a return by-passing the summit of Cleiseabhal. Wild beauty and ever more breathtaking views of the Harris Hills, Taransay and the white sand beaches.Nick Down122/07/2017
