Easy full traverse NNE to SSW on hard frosted ground in glorious sun, after Ollaberry.Tony S31/01/2019
With Jon Glew, from the quarry. Sheep tracks gave easy firm going all the way, often on good firm ground ground below the peat hags. There seem to be 3 summits, but the eastern summits are not as high as the western summit. Not an outstanding hill, but surprisingly good despite its appearance.Gill25/08/2018
Up through the quarry from the B9079 (HU 3400 7870). Took a direct line over dry(ish) peat hags. Checked out some other high ground ESE of the GR, but seemed probably lower by a small amount.jonglew25/08/2018
As nordicstar but thought there could be three summits.Eddie10/03/2017

Spent much of the morning between the summits in intermittent mist practising my GPS navigation skills, then came off the hill the wrong way.Topographer5731/05/2013
Elliptic from near Eela Water - pleasant spot for a protracted afternoon doze.Smudge30/05/2013
From track end at GR334795. Cut up sheep pasture to gain open fell easily and quick heather skip to top. Two possible tops visited, small cairn and hag top to NE. Appeared same height. Back same way in 40 mins.nordicstar28/05/2013
