Started this walk from Lasgair near Lochboisdale. Used a track to cross the water and then headed over rough ground to the southeast to make the first of the four summits.garyhoney31/07/2001
solo marilyn bagging run from B&B whist others swotted up on the plans for our 2nd Western Isles Challenge starting next day. Shock when I saw a hand bobbing upright in the sea -only a rubber glove. Lesley had earlier hyperventilated going for a brave test swim in the cold lochan behind the B&B in her hired wet suit - we decided to opt out of the swimming option on the event and take the penalty points instead !Chris Pearson08/05/2000
