Good scrambling weather, final move not too difficult! Lovely sunset light on Suilven.twg2704/09/2017
Decent weather for scrambling around on the pinnacles. Went anticlockwise and came down via the Tümp to the NW. Impressive hill.agentmancuso23/07/2017
An easy couple of hours from the car park on a nice day. Easy scrambling, Plenty of people about too.Shutterlag29/04/2017

With Richard M's final Marilyn party, thank you to all those who helped me over the gendarme near the summit.Topographer5729/05/2016
Late for the summit party owing to a flat tyre, had to flag down a car and request a lift to start. Not a bad day though in the end. Well done Richard M.alda29/05/2016
Repeat ascent in honour of Marilyn completer number 8, Richard McLellan. Great choice of hill in grand weather and lots of cake and malt. Five out of eight compilers on summit together.Martin R29/05/2016
Richard's final Marilyn. With 20 others. Fantastic weather followed by midge free beach bbq at port a Baigh.Denise 29/05/2016
Revisit with Richard Mclellan who had managed to save this superb peak as his last Marilyn - joined by a good group of friends including 4 of the 7 previous Marilyns completers and several who appreciated the rope kindly provided for the little scrambly tower just before the summit. Fine sunny day. Down via Meall a'Chaorainn.RHW29/05/2016

My final Marilyn, a wonderful hill to complete on, great company and after an iffy start superb weather on the summit. Many thanks to all those who travelled to this far corner of Scotland to join me . Descent via Meall a'Chaorainn which just makes 'Tump' statusRichardM29/05/2016

Solo from car park. Poorly Jen left behind so quick sortie ro top in 30 mins and back after ridge traverse in 90.nordicstar09/09/2015
Via normal route, Thunder storm passing over on the way up.rhalstead01/07/2015
Previously to South-East summit only on 10/07/2014Neil Midgley25/06/2015
Fantastic hill, great views despite not very good weather. Did all three tops. Not as hard as guide book makes out, but when met with the big step on the west (highest) top, the gully to the left is an easier option. A wonderful complex mountain with rewards far greater than its height might suggest.nicolajane16/06/2015
Beautiful sunny day. Climbed with Chris, Digger, Kitt and JohnPhylipSollis22/04/2015
With Rob and Lesley. A grey day with rain on the decent. Limited views from saddle.Roadie5813/04/2015
Dropped down to the left of the sentry barring the summit. Then managed to wriggle up the large boulder. Less exposed than it looks from above.hils26/09/2014
Directly up from the road. Great pinnicles. Done with George Morl.Adrian08/06/2014
from carpark roundeast route to col then over pinnacles to rock then scramble to top,great hill.robertphillips23/05/2014
Rockhoppers trip (about 20 out in total on the day) up Stac Pollaidh (612m) in glorious weather. Scramble between pinnacles on top. Strong winds in places made the scramble even more fun.tobywharne01/01/2014
Walked with Gill. And Tanni. Lovely day with clear views and blue skies.Roadie5808/09/2013
With Dad.gilbatratchet07/08/2013
Very windy, but managed the true western summit climb.indianajane24/03/2013
Good weather. Great little hill within a fantasticunique landscape. Had fun scrambling around on the top. The final ascent had one final tricky part - the problem being I was worried about commiting and then not being able to get back down - it actually proved easier to descend as you could jump down to the path. Great fun!scholesy09/10/2012
With family. The guidebooks make it sound a lot worse than it actually is I think. There is one marginally difficult move, but that is it. A great hill with awesome views. One of my Scottish favourites for sure.AGWilliamson19/09/2012
With GB on the main tourist path to the ridge and then pinnacles to the west. Unsure whether we reached the correct one.bolton11/09/2012
From car park took path around the E. side of the hill & then up to the col - W. along ridge, but didn't attempt the exposed scramble up the final pinnacle to the summit. (PM)gerrybowes11/09/2012
Midges are us, but apart from that an excellent mountain..A must for everybody to complete.. 1 of my favs, with plenty of scrambling too.Mc Tango20/08/2012
A short but quite steep walk up from the road. The east summit is easily gained but the true, western summit takes a little nerve in negotiating the rock stacks, the last of which requires a short but exposed climb (easyish hand and foot holds). A head for heights is definitely needed, but it's not as difficult as the guide books state.jonglew19/05/2012
3rd ascent, with PK. Great early morning scramble on a fine little mountain.amswanston07/05/2012
With Theo and Robin, started from the road, began in the rain but cleared pretty quickly.tidebrook20/03/2012
With Tim, wet but fun scramble, small mountain, big personality to quot our friend Niall.Loz_mck06/01/2012

With DJB. Wonderful scrabble, found the crux quite easy.douglas_easton20/05/2011
Climbed this one on my own after leaving adrian and his mates behind. The weather was perfect on the way up with minor snow showers on top out of nowhere.mattwilde6624/10/2010
Fantastic day watching the weather on the nearby hills.Meagaidh23/07/2010
a grubby day meant a quieter hill.. took the new path up around the back of the hill and up the gulley north east below the summit. the views are pure fantasy.stig_nest16/09/2009
Hot, sunny, calm, good views. Spotted a group of people on the final summit, used their climbing skills to get me back down the bad bit. Thanks guys.iangalbraith01/06/2009
Gusty wind but managed the summit scramble OK. Great little hill - up and down in just over 2 hours.signyred15/05/2009
