|Due to sea conditions, 3 months ago, was unable to land on island. Success this time - same boat ('Braveheart') with same skipper & mate - trickyish landing. Nice little island with summit cairn.||ger||19/12/2018|
|As others, thanks to all who made it possible.||Topographer57||19/12/2018|

|Early morning drive up from Leicestershire. Finally the tide and weather were matched. Great trip to a pleasant if somewhat smelly island. Then onto Fidra. Thanks again to the resolute Alan Holmes.||Campbell Singer||19/12/2018|
|Paddled out from North Berwick an hour before low tide midway between spring and neap. Landed on barnacled sloping slab rocks midway along the SW side. 5ft+ swell mid stream and breaking worringly on the E side, round here it was relatively calm with no more than 2 ft of swell, still made for a slightly tricky landing. Seals and pups on the island. On to Lamb and Fidra.||jonglew||29/10/2018|
|From the boat Braveheart from North Berwick- thanks to Alan Holmes for arranging. landed at high water on somewhat greasy rocks aided by sprinkled sand. Short walk up to obvious HP with cairn. No birds. Good views of Bass Rock. Overcast with low swell and light wind.||Denise||19/01/2018|
