Thanks Alan, finally reached this island after a five year waitColin Crawford19/01/2019
Landed from Braveheart on green slabs made tenable by handfulls of sand at W end of S side of island. Nice grassy island with grassy cairn at high point. Fulmars circling off NE cliffs. Thanks Alan for perserverence in organising the trip.RichardM19/01/2019
On a trip organised by Alan Holmes and using the boat “Braveheart”. Thank you, Alan. Beautiful weather for a trip to Fidra and Craigleith from North Berwick.pwbellarby19/12/2018
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.ger19/12/2018
As others, thanks to all who made it possible.Topographer5719/12/2018

After an abortive attempt three months ago, finally landed on an AH organised trip.NormanW19/12/2018
Very slippy/slimy landing on sloping rock.Thankfully the boatman had brought along a bucket of sand to give some traction.bjewing19/12/2018
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 Singer19/12/2018
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.jonglew29/10/2018
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
