Sublime day, cloud inversion for hours. Along with The Storr.Jhimmy04/06/2018
What an awesome ridge, heading as far as long ridge for 2 hours to get the Flasvein via all peaks and back as want to do northern marilyns from Quiraing car park today too. Perfect weather. Company: Soloiandesbottes12/05/2018

From The Storr on easy short grass. Back to the bealach then the top end of the north ridge of The Storr. Took the easy path back to the end of the NE ridge where once again I was confronted with the hordes. 3.5 hours and just over 6.5 miles for the 2 marilyns. Solo.bolton06/10/2017
The Storr and Hartaval via local bus and Coire Scamadaltrimarc204/10/2017
parked overnight at The Old Man of Storr car park and in glorious weather but quite brisk wind finally made a one way traverse all the way up the Trotternish ridge. Came off it before Bioda Mor as I'd summitted it before and I wanted to get up Cleat and take a look at the two tricky other two little TuMPs off under the eastern cliffs. Great day had a sting in the tail. never got a lift and faced a gruelling 13 miles walk back which added another 5 hours till 2.25am Ouch! Deliriously tired.vegibagger02/06/2017
On Uig- Beinn Edra- Hartaval- Kensaleyre traverse of the central part of the Trotternish ridge. From Boca Ruadh- a long way between tops for this walk, a very straightforward ascent though somewhat featureless terrain. Super viewpoint, lots of sunshine. The descent worked a treat- Sron Dubh, just below the crag at NG466537, skirting below crags on short turf, then a short beeline over moor with emerging paths leading to the excellent path shown on the OS maps at NG450527. This one really exists! I used a bus to link the start and end points but you'd get 9.5 h for the walk if you traveled from Portree and back by bus.pwheeler17/06/2016
