Out & back from Camastianavaig following paths round cliff edge. Fantastic hill. On own.MorecambeMonkey15/05/2019
From Camustianavaig along good path just above the beach to near Clach Dhu, up past McQueens Loch to top passing thro' mini quiraing area, back down ridge.daviemore13/04/2019
A Skye Marilyn with a path, what bliss, what joy. From Camastianavaig shore car park. N to red post box, then NE up driveway to 'Hill Path' sign pointing L. Up grassy corridor between two fences to wooden gate. Path is unclear after this gate - it squeezes slightly L between two birch trees at the L end of a steep grass bank, then traverses R above this bank. A few false summits but these are offset by the magnificant setting and views. Enjoy the lovely SHORT grass.Isbjorn22/01/2019

Absolute gem. Park at foreshore in Tianavaig, and in 100m follow the signed hill path all along the lovely cliffs to the summit, with awesome views. Even had a visit from a sea eagle but he didn't fancy my ginster. Must be best non Munro, Corbett, Graham etc on SkyeThearlaichdubh20/08/2015

Bagged on a nice and sunny day, glorious views.3fatties10/04/2015
Parked at Tianavaig bay and followed the escarpment to the top. Continued north until it was possible to drop down and return under the cliffs heading SSE to the shore. A path along the shore returned us to the start. Fine views of the landslip and the sound. Under the cliffs feels remote.mindlessflogger24/12/2014

Enjoyed a pleasant unhurried walk up from Camastianavaig on the good path. A bit too unhurried though because once I reached the top it poured down for the whole way back to Portree.Alex C12/09/2013

A beautiful mini mountain. Parked at Penifiler and walked round the coast to the north of the hill. The main slopes up were found and the views from the top were excellent. An adult White-tailed Eagle was seen flying below to the north excellent.garyhoney04/04/2002

We stared our route up this hill at or near Peinmore. Ascended part over moor, part on S ridge then went down the N ridge some way. Billowing clouds and some sunshine. Like most, we thought this a very fine hill indeed. With Pete.pwheeler24/05/1998
