|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 Down1||21/04/2019|
|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.||mainnirnamfiadh||26/09/2018|
|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 road||Colin Crawford||28/07/2018|

I recorded the highest point at 109m @ NR 40753 96645. Continuing Wsw to Cnoc Callanta....||Dazingdale||09/05/2018|
