With John S. From gate at NL 945426 on tracks to south end of Tràigh nan Gilean, then up left to gate in fence on skyline. Thence by NE ridge to summit on NW side of fence, but would probably have been better on SE side because of intervening barbed wire. SW from summit to Ceann a' Mhara: magnificent views on a warm and sunny day.mainnirnamfiadh09/05/2015
A lovely walk combining these two TuMPs plus a walk along the beach with Iain Brown and Martin Richardson.Dugswell209/05/2014
