A lovely walk from the road end at Arnish on a good path then a short stroll to the top of the hill. Back the same way to the Fladday path junction, then down and across to the island. Back on the coast path, which has been cleared recently and is now an easy and beautiful stroll. Tea and cake at Raasay House before the ferry.Gill01/10/2019

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

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
