Up from A'Chill, through the pass to east of hill, past the abandoned shepherds dwellings. West from top of pass across boggy plateau, feels a lot harder than distance and height suggests. Super views back to Rum!Columba06/06/2012
Trig revisit. Super island - world class. Calmac on a Saturday gets you 8 hours ashore - barely enough to cover Canna and Sanday. Visited S9737 too plus a dozen assorted summits.RHW19/05/2012
