Standard route from the landing place, over the hill and back along the west coast. With Mrs Anchovy, M & X. All rather lovely.Herbert Anchovy29/08/2018
Clockwise from the pier to Mullach Beag then Mullach Mor, returning by the western coastal path. A stunning walk and viewpoint, highly recommended!Chris Mac03/08/2018

£12 ferry at 11.00. Walked south along the western shore, then up the steep path through the heather from above the southern lighthouse. Very tame goats with kids : two breeds - small brown ones, large white ones, a family of them guarding the cave. Oyster catchers, ponies with foals, bluebells, a chaffinch, a swan nesting on the shore. Grey day but a special walk. Well waymarked.Owen B13/05/2017
Just in time to catch ferry at 2pm. Had an hour and a half to get up and down via the main path and made it with time to spare. Excellent path and superb viewpoint at the top.AndrewFinnimore05/08/2016
A gem of a place with the ferry service to match.Topographer5702/06/2016
10 am boat over. lovely dayrobertphillips16/05/2016
2nd hill after Mullach Beag and a touch of scrambling on descent path to the return leg of the circuit from the pier. Great day out accompanied by Hal and Rose, an American couple i met on the boat. I found a fissure in the rocks that went in about 50m and still wasn't dark (suspected light from above). Cute goats, birds galore, interesting Buddhist murals and evocative old Hawthorn trees on a lovely day ended by a drink in the shop made by the aptly appropriate 'Finnish' woman.Dazingdale06/05/2016
Parked in Lamlash and took the ferry over. Ferry owner says there are no strong currents in the bay, so if I go again I'll take my canoe. Followed well made path in a clockwise direction as instructed by the Monk(ess)? Great views all around, Eriskay ponies and spectacular cliffs. Very interesting wee walk.raffemeister30/04/2016
Two and a half hour romp around the island with Jenny, Margriet and Rick on a lovely morning. Mullach Beag, Mullach Mor, Pillar Rock and the two lighthouses plus the odd cave, Soay sheep and Eriskay ponies.Dugswell221/04/2016
With Jenx, Tall Blond and ticky Dugswell. Small group on special boat of four over to HI. Standard route round, done in just over two hours 30 full circuit. Jim and Russell are contacts. The Beag too.nordicstar21/04/2016
Oh what a perfect day! A beautiful little island in glorious spring sunshine. Willow warblers everywhere in the woods, and gulls on the cliffs.jenx21/04/2016
With Rick,Jen and Douglas on a near perfect day.tallblond21/04/2016

Ferry to Holy Isle, then after introductory talk took marked path from jetty up N ridge to top (11:25). Lovely day, lots of other walkers, good views to Arran & Ailsa Craig. Rushed back same route finishing 12:15 but ferry had already gone.dbb18/04/2014
I climbed this hill with my dad and little sister Amelia. We visited the trig point and got very wet on the way down luckily we reached the bottom just as the ferry came in.isabelle summer30/08/2013

Paddle over with Netty. Walked over with Tom and Net.Mountain Goat12/06/2013
A short, 15min, crossing from Lamlash courtesy of the Holy Island Tours launch saw us at the jetty and being greeted by a representative of the Bhuddist community, owners of the island. Deciding to cross the high ground south to north we headed south along the coast to the southern tip of the island visiting St Molaise's Cave on the way before making the ascent.jonglew10/05/2013
With GHC. A lovely day out.Play2End05/05/2013
With Jackie, Màiri and Andrew (who all wait at Mullach Beag). Superb views from the summit. Ferry fare is money well spent.mikejacobs14/08/2012

Lovely stroll down the west side of Holy Isle then back over Mullach MorCrib Goch26/08/2011
Fantastic day on Holy island off Arran's east coast. From the jetty we walked the ridge of this island to the summit great views - and down to the retreat at the southern end of the island. Walked back along Western coast back to the Tibetan Retreat.ChinnockC31/05/2011
Designated path from pier to top - rerurning via Southerm end of the Island. Charming and peaceful thanks to the stewardship of the Bhuddist community.summitsup21/05/2010
Revisit. Busy sunny Easter Sunday, the boat was very busy at a tenner apiece. Fine view including snowy Goat Fell which I climbed first thing. Mullach Buidhe this pm so a quick jog up and down had to suffice today - good fun on a nice firm path; warm dry feet for once. The Peace Centre was just finishing a course so there were a few extra folk on the return boat.RHW04/04/2010
Boat trip from Lamlash £10. Soay sheep seen. Walk over hill, trig on top with 'donations'. Descent over far end, return by coastal path, buddhist scripts & paintings seen. Plus goats and sea caves. Excellent!Aye Jimmy29/07/2009
Nice three hour walk around the island - £10 for ferry from Lamlash is a bit steep though.Richard09/07/2009

The island is an intriguing place. Originally known as Eilein Molaise, this name being gradually corrupted and transferred to the town across the bay.agentmancuso08/04/2008
Ferry from Lamlash then after listening to 'briefing' set off on a circuit of the island. Managed to get my 14 month old to the top and off.garyhoney25/06/2007
