From South Glen Dale to WNW, cross country - could not see any coastal path.ger02/10/2019
Parked in Glendale and started along the coast path as others. Any path was difficult to follow after the bay with a ruined house, and, after a fence, seemed to head into tiresomely dense vegetation. When I slanted up the slope, the going became surprisingly easy. It was still a relief to be able to walk on rock slabs in the final ~30 ft asc.to the summit. Excellent views included the E slopes of the Beinn Mhor group on a very clear day. Return over Cruachan (qv). If pressed for time I'd recommend the Eriskay Ma above this one.pwheeler22/05/2019
