Approached from Cnoc Coille Bharr over exceptionally difficult terrain with brambles, whin and bracken and the odd crawl through scrubby willow for a change of scene. Descent to Ardlamey wasn't much better despite this being winter and the bracken being deid. Take a machete with you.sclater19/01/2020
Walked from the village, enjoyed the gardens en route. Then up through the undergrowth from Ardlamy. Pretty dense at times with brambles, and bracken getting going too. Bryher was very brave! Elected to return by our thrashed route rather than looking for anything better. Easier going back!jenx04/06/2019
Moved the car to Ardailly (NR 6439 5070). Good track to the mill (NR 6414 5067) after which a bit tricksie. To avoid the initial gorse and bracken keep to the shoreline. The only other tricky bit is a seemingly impeneterable barrier of rhododendron, but it can be negotiated at NR 6372 5029. Other than that it really is a bracken and bramble-fest. A nasty hill, not to be repeated.jonglew31/10/2018
It's not often that I give up on a hill, but this is definitely one for the winter. Approaches from Ardlamey were completely blocked by head high bracken, brambles and gorse. after several sorties each of which gained me a few metres in an inordinate amount of time, I elected to abandon the attemptColin Crawford06/08/2016
Sixth Tump of the day. Part of a continual run from Na Crogachan Pier at the north of the island. Return weaving away through fence lines gates walls gorse back to Ardminish and the Gigha Hotel, where the Memsahib awaited with a beer and a sandwich for me. :-)Shutterlag05/05/2016
From Ardlamey farm , not recommended because of the abundant brambles and bracken.chalky195318/09/2015
