|Completion Tump on Erraid. (For tides and public transport see log for 10456 Cnoc Mòr.) Walked road from Fionnphort, over Cnoc Knockvologan, and across sand of Erraid Sound. Erraid “landfall” just south of Dùn Aoidhean, then south-west over bealach and down to Tràigh Gheal. An intermittent footpath, with a couple of plank bridges across some of the wettest bits. Round back of small hill in middle of beach to reach foot of Rubha Calachain. East side stoutly defended by bracken and small trees, but an intermittent path up the north ridge can be reached from just north of the bealach at NM 292196. Dubh Artach visible from the summit. Back largely the same way, but walked full length of Tràigh Gheal and went farther south at Erraid Sound to pick up LR track up to Knockvologan, then road back to Fionnphort. Weather cloudy at first, sunnier later, but ground very wet after a summer’s rain.||mainnirnamfiadh||31/08/2015|
|Sunday morning invasion by Marhof folk. Direct route from Cnoc Mor involves very marshy terrain followed by careful negotiation of overgrown trails on the final climb. Returned to mainland via the nearby beach that inspired RL Stevenson's Kidnapped.||Smudge||31/05/2015|

|Parked at end of yellow road. Over Knockvologan to Erraid then here. Wet n windy but a nice circuit. Crossed about 1 hour before low tide by which time it was well down, easy sandy crossing, seems plenty of leeway for this tidal island. Once arrived, look for good path to summit, starting faintly in bouldery scrub||RHW||05/05/2013|
