Excellent linear walk from Rhubha Briodog to Sgaladal Mhor including the Marilyns Caiteseal, Cipeagal Bheag & Beinn Mhor. Boat trip arranged by Gill (Katie from Scaladale Centre piloted the little boat out & back - 5 passengers). Really excellent adventure. I should have gone to Scaladal Bheag at end of walk - oops! - Katie came to the rescue, as, realizing my mistake I was heading for the correct pick up point.ger28/05/2019
Third and last hill of the day. Four out of five walked out west to the agreed pickup point, the other went somewhat further north!Jon F28/05/2019
From south on north traverse of West Parc using boat drop off and pick up. Cold wind but clear and mainly sunnyN.Morters28/05/2019
A wonderful linear walk courtesy of Katy, on the boat from the Scaladale Centre. Katy will drop off and pick up wherever you want. Dropped at Rubha Briodog and collected at Sgaladal Bheag for a great walk over Caiteseal, Cipeagal Bheag and Beinn Mhor via an interesting cairned path around the W end of Carn Ban. Direct line W back to the pick up and we only lost one. Easy going all the way, a top notch walk. Price reduces for more people and if you stay at the centre. Note that Scaladale is part of Lewis and Harris Youth Clubs Association, a registered charity, so your £70 fee for the boat helps to support the organisation.Gill28/05/2019
After Seaforth, Scaladale boat to Ceann Mor then straight to this summit, very windy. Then SW to other 2 Marilyns before pick up again back to Maraig. 18k.NormanW08/05/2019
Round of Beinn Mhor, Cipeagal and Caiteshal from by Kenmore. Used boat from Scaladale Centre. Pricey at £200 for being dropped off and collected 7 hours later so best to share. Did these 3 with Norman Wares. Descent from Carn Ban wasn't as bad as it looked on the map and ground was OK and not too boggy.AndrewFinnimore08/05/2019

Uisinis, Gormol, Ciopeagal Bheag, Caiteseal, Beinn Mhor and walk out to Eisgein. Made it here before the sunset, then a long walk out. Just made it before dark at 11pm.jenx11/05/2016

Over a footbridge below a waterfall and a 3' wide excellent path uphill to its end and 100m more over wet moor to the famous fish wind indicator. 11.30. A long mile on rising wet grassy sludge to a 500' bealach. Another long mile over deer grass to the south ridge of the hill. Scattered grey rocks appeared and to the top at 13.30.
