With Jenx at Marhofn 2015. From col high point direct across broken rockscape in mist to Beinn na h-Iolaire.nordicstar12/06/2015
Park tidily at the end of the public road in Arnish. Follow the left hand track out of the car park down towards the sea. Continue along the track through a gate until you reach a house at NG 5966 4874. Keep right onto the uphill track heading north. At NG 5970 4977 keep straight ahead. Shortly afterwards the path turns right and climbs to a col. At this point you are on your own. Head north across the open hillside for around 350M to the summit.geralddavison24/03/2015
Along path from parking area. One of the more memorable Marilyns!AndrewFinnimore13/05/2014
With Mrs G. Driving to the furthest point possible on Raasay involved nearly 2 miles of Calum's Road. The path onwards was good and easy to follow until we veered off to bag this small 254m Marilyn when it was a yomp over heather and gorse covered slopes. Great views to the north over Isle of Rona and westwards to The Storr on Skye.jonglew16/05/2012
Deliberately chose an offbeat route to summit. You mean you got lost? No, no it's just I find finger posts and gravel paths oppressive. The drive seemed wilder. Hey, the sun shone, for a while. Great views.Martin R02/03/2012
From Arnish with Jonathan Woods, Chris Watson and Jim Bloomer on a lovely afternoon before walking over to Eilean Fladday at low tide to pick up it's high point.Dugswell203/06/2011

Path from end of public roadGeoff Briggs31/05/2005
Drove the length of Calum?s road to a point just above Arnish. From this point walked along the track that was once the main thoroughfare to the Island of Rona. Near the highest point left the track to reach the trig.garyhoney06/04/2002
