Logged Descriptions  (logged by 20 users)ByDate of Ascent
Solo. From Eriskay ferry terminal, having crossed as a foot passenger from Barra, walked up road to high point. More or less straight up to the trig point of Ben Scrien and the rocky rib that is the highest point. Down SE slopes a bit and then to Cnoc Pairceanan. Descended towards Loch Cracabhaig and found a gate in the fence. Descended to Pairceanan and continued to Ben Stack.pwbellarby03/06/2019

CW circuit of The Eriskay Trio - Ma-Tu-Hu. Visited the first two hills with Charlie (one of yesterday's Barra Head five island team). Charlie went back to his car for adventures further north & I carried on to the third hill. Had an hour to kill before ferry back to Barra - strolled along white sands, etc.ger24/05/2018
