On the way back from Gometra.Found a reasonably straightforward ascent from 403418 but bracken lower down.NormanW12/07/2018
Visiting Ulva with mum and dad, although they did not come up the hill with me, preferring to stick to the waymarked paths.Grinner09/05/2018
Following Gometra using track/bike. Just 100m before the Bothy found a track up the hill in recently planted native woodland. Takes you high then it joins a path next to an old wall to the Coll. Short trip over to the summit and back. Time enough for both and afternoon Langustines tea in the Ferry Boat cafe.N.Morters19/04/2018
Bikes were useful, though not easy on the rough track. Plenty of time for both hills between first and last ferry.jenx22/08/2016
From ferry (10:30) took north road along island to nearest point to summit then through waist-high damp bracken & steep heather across 2 fences. Thereafter easier over grass between crags to trig. Dry but very hazy; cloud on top. Back same route;finish 13:35. A waymarked route over both summits is advertised but didn't try this.dbb10/06/2016

Ascended from 'South Side' track via pt 204. Very thick heather and bracken in places; recommend ascending outside of summer months. Incredible views back to Mull, surrounding Islands including Rum from the summit. Descended to 'North Side' track in order to return. This would be an easier, but less interesting ascent although two rings of deer fence prtecting new plantations should ideally be avoided.raffemeister04/08/2014

Seventh TuMP of a busy warm sunny day with JimB and RichTea, 7:45 hours between the first and last ferries.Dugswell207/05/2013
From the Ulva ferry point.BLACKHILL25/04/2011
From the ferry I took the paths to the quarry. From there I blazed a trail through at times head high bracken for what seemed like an age. For the descent I headed north to the main track and got back to the ferry in half the timegaryhoney07/07/2009
With Mrs G. A 9 mile walk out from the small ferry terminal to the highest point on the little island of Ulva off the coast of Mull. Good paths for part of the way but after that it was very rough going up a water course and then over heavily heathered slopes. We were buzzed by a sea eagle twice though so worth the sweat!jonglew31/05/2009
Trig revisit, after Gometra. Decent summit, fine view. Track from NW, starting W of Bearnus, then easy slopes. Ulva ferry 9 til 5 weekdays.RHW24/03/2008
Over to Ulva at 9.45 on rutted track for about an hour. Struck off through bracken looking for animal tracks to give some help. Balder patches led up through first of 2 bands of crags. 3 deer looking startled. Found a way through 3 or 4 lines of crags, one needing hands as well as knees, and across damp flattish top of hill to Vanessa 10524 at 11.40. Ulva, Dutchman's Cap, Tiree, coll and Barra, B A'Ghraig, A'Chioch and B More in cloud, C Bheinn and B Na Sreine.arranc07/09/2006
Cycling back from Gometra, up and down from the track. Rear spokes came loose but survived to the ferry. Nail varnish does a temp job they tell me!Eddie10/07/2005
Date is first visit. Notes from later...heathery hill, fine view altho restricted to W by B Eolasary. tk to Gometra, back over Ulva summit, return via FP S side RHW01/05/2000
