With RHW and Dugswell2 on the 10am ferry from Guernsey, a full day is needed to do the island justice. Bike hire essential to get round all the interesting spots. An easy rock scramble down the headland, some old concrete steps near the bottom aided descent but not necessary. Then another easy scramble up to a sml-med cairn at the top at N49.4498, W2.36797. A few fledgling gulls encountered. A low tide is necessary in order to maintain dry feet.jonglew09/07/2017
With Doug and Jon, 1000 ferry from Guernsey, hired bikes (not pre arranged), tracks and path most of way then concrete steps to R of col, easy crossing 2h30 before low spring tide, steepish slightly scrambly ascent to large scruffy cairn, then with Jon to next tidal island which has navigation beacon, col similar height. Then to GouliotRHW09/07/2017
Very hot day with cloudless blue skies. We turn right as we leave the village, past the church, gardens and school to reach the end of the track. Follow signs to Eperquerie, a well cut grass path between gorse/ bracken to reach open area with cannon and splendid view. Cross narrow grassy path with steep drops either side to reach northern end of mainland Sark with bench, day mark, rock carving and sundial. Descend on narrow path down to tidal gap keeping east as slope more gentle on this side. Find hidden concrete steps and easily dry cross channel at LW-1 Springs. Make a rising traverse on east side of La Grune to avoid steep rocks and gorse. Short ridge on top with small cairn at N end but we think outcropping rock at South end is higher.Denise 26/06/2017
Sailed across from Herm and braved a night on one of the mooring buoys in Havre Gosselin below the temptingly close summit of Brecqhou. Tracks north to Eperquerie Common then path down to N tip of island. Surprisingly a few steps access the coastline on the NE side of the point.Easily over boulders to the inter tidal island of La Grune. Easy ascent of slabs and grass on SE side. Summit has a nice cairn but the outcropping rock 14m to its SE is slightly higher than the ground around the perimeter of the cairn. Cairn is at:- N49.44977deg, W002.36796deg 35m WGS84RichardM26/06/2017
