Climbed on very hot day with family from Lasgair and via north shore of loch nan smalag to slight col south of summit then up, more direct return! Fantastic views of Beinn Mhor etc but even better towards Eriskay and Barra, a wonderful wee gem of a hill. Took children to tidal island of Orosay afterwards!pdantic10/08/2012

fine steep complex hill, tough beeline to col to N. Auratote 783201 to Unasary 772276 over 4 Marilyns RHW01/08/2001
This was a fairly easy down and up from Beinn Ruigh Choinnich although the ground under foot was extremely damp. A good view to the south could be had from the top.garyhoney31/07/2001
Solo marilyn bagging run combined with Beinn Ruigh Choinnich from our B&B day before our 2nd Western Isles Challenge event, left the others doing their homework checking the complex plans for the event which I had spent 'months' drawing up.Had a shock by coast when I saw a hand bobbing uptight in the water - only a rubber glove.Earlier Lesley had hyperventilated in the the cold water going for a test swim in the lochan behind the B&B in her hired wetsuit - we decided against the swimming options on the event and took the penalty points instead!Chris Pearson08/05/2000
