Parked 400m up road to dam again to ascend my last 2000 ft Ma on Harris. I looked at the SE ridge route but decided on an easier way by the S and E shores of Loch Maolaig. Pleasant, very good corrie scenery. The couple I met on Tirga Mor were planning to descend that way. My descent was down the fine, quite narrow NW ridge- a walk all the way. Golden Eagles again, sunshine, St Kilda views- were becoming familiar and the Grahams were completed in 5 days! Plenty of time to do Ceartaval and watch Red-throated divers on Loch Bhraigh Bheagarais before making the easy descent down to the path in Glen Leosaid. An excellent mountain.pwheeler17/05/2019

Followed ridge to Ulabhal, then NW down to col and path N for view of Sron Uladail overhang (14:45). Graham returned from here; I took a steep route SW up to ridge and over Tiorga Beag to summit (17:05; in cloud). Went briefly SE on ridge, then down steep SW slopes to path and followed this back to road. Finish 18:45.dbb19/09/2017
