Quick there-and-back from Round Table. Sunny day with good visibility but cold wind. Saw a few other people.Jonnyiom01/12/2019
Parked on track just off road and followed well-defined easy path to trig and summit cairn. Great views from top even on this full cloud day, luckily for us it was high cloud and it wasn't even bothering Snaefell. The views stretched from the Mourne Mountains to the Lake District to Snowdonia. Afterwards drove to and did a 9.7 mile walk taking in Bradda Hill, Lhiattee Ny Beinne and Cronk Ny Arrey Laa and later on bagged Mull Hill and Cronk Ny Arrey.DanTrig22/10/2019
2 of 2: Parked at the Round Table. With Karen.ChrisR16/10/2019
Parking in the bridleway, 2/4 cars. Track to top, clear views but closed in on return to the car.iangalbraith15/10/2019
A good circular walk along the valley from Glen Maye, up over the tops and back on the coast path. With B and R.jenx13/08/2019
Sufficient parking at the path access where the bridleway meets the road. Excellent clear day, so saw the supposed seven kingdoms. Wales : Holy Island, Anglesey, Snowdonia all clearly visible. Northern Ireland : Mournes and other areas visible. Scotland : Mull of Galloway, Galloway hills, and I think Criffel visible. England : clear views of the Lake District skyline and the large offshore windfarms. Couldn't see Blackpool Tower though.Owen B19/06/2019

Quick up and down from Round Table. Windy at top.NormanW04/11/2018
4th tump of 7 on a 32.2km traverse from Peel to Port Erin, 1st exploring Peel Castle then climbing Corrins Hill, Raby Moar Hill and Dalby Mountain via Glen Maye, descending through Glen Rushen and the Round Table plantation to reach the A36 where i headed directly for the summit through the heather, now emerging into flower. Fantastic views from the top with a 360deg panorama. I recorded 488m @ SC 25773 75923. Descent via path to the A27 then another parallel with the A36, heading for Cronk Ny Arrey Laa..Dazingdale17/07/2018
3/3. From Southwest.PGCE27/09/2017
Slowed down by a cold, so I did this and Cronk ny Arrey Laa(qv) as separate walks, rather than do them together using the Su bus from Round Table to Bradda. Like most, from Bayr na Skeddan- parking on 'green' road, good path to summit for views, remains of fort on E side. There's a trodden path heading E, but I returned same way.pwheeler15/06/2017

From road side overnight sleep place up the wsw track into the cloud! Highest point of southern end of the island and final Marilyn. Plaque detailing significant ancient sitevegibagger25/07/2016
Parked at the gate to the East, approximately a mile away and started our steady ascent. Reasonable well defined path, with soggy sections due to recent rain. Once at the summit, great views, perimeter wall of the ancient hill fort and white trig point.dreeder7518/07/2015

Ticked after Cronk ny Arrey Laa on the coastal path. No luck with a view. Camped in the woods at the top of Bayr ny Skeddan but had to make the tea out of bog water. Luckily no after effects suffered.mindlessflogger02/08/2014

Wow, first time Isle of Man. Mountain roads all closed by deep drifts. Slow up A27 from Dalby. Just made round table in drifts. Parked in snow bay and steady up hill to summit in sunshine. Return same route and onward to Ronague and Port Erin.nordicstar30/03/2013
