From the CP above the SW end of Kiloran Bay to the road bend, across fields S of the watercourse (not the best route), up the obvious gully and right to Pairc Gharbh. Then cross-country through a miniature wood to Beinn nan Fitheach, and back on the N side of the watercourse (much easier).Nick Down121/04/2019
After Pairc Gharbh. Initially tending west of bealach, then aiming for east ridge which proved to have a lot of small trees, making progress slow. Completion Tump on Colonsay, but a bit of an anti-climax still dry, but low cloud now keeping visibility below about 200 metres, except directly downhill to sea and Eilean Olmsa. Down initially south-westwards to avoid sheer drop at west end of summit ridge, south-eastwards from Blàr na Baintighearna, then south-westwards following line of wall to reach old road at gate about 398961. Very boggy. Road back to Scalasaig.mainnirnamfiadh26/09/2018
After Pairc Gharbh, not the easiest of links, with some deep vegetation in the col and heather/scrub on the short ridge to the top. Easier descent to the roadColin Crawford28/07/2018
8th tump of 9 on a 19.8km Northerly loop visiting all Macphies and tumps en-route, starting with Beinn an Sgoltaire, Beinn Inebri (not a Tump) Carnan Eoin, Beinn Bheag, Meall na Monadh, over Dun Meadhonach to Dun Crom,then a traverse over the lovely wild Northern bay, before climbing over Cnoc Corr, Cnoc Charragh, passing a standing stone, Cnoc na Faire and then West over Bheinn Bhreac, South over Maol Buidhe, Dun Dubh, Cnoc Mor Carraig nan Darrach, Pairc Gharbh and finally South to this top. I recorded the highest point at 109m @ NR 40753 96645. Continuing Wsw to Cnoc Callanta....Dazingdale09/05/2018
