Evening after ferry arrival...track towards lighthouse then up over easy heather moorland. Fine viewsN.Morters23/05/2019
A few places to park at Ceann a' Bhaigh. Up the road to the lighthouse then noticed a faint trodden path direct to the summit. Returned via the lighthouse and headland, gentle coastal scenery, the way marked by posts (literature available locally). A delightful way to spend the morning, views across to Skye, very dry underfoot helped as there is plenty of the route on peat.pwheeler16/05/2019
