1.5hrs from ferry to the summit - terrific views to N, S & W.Chris Peart23/04/2019
Going home today so a quick walk before ferry from Lochmaddy. Just drove down the road to park slighly north of the hill, layby to park in. Parked directly below the summit. Straight up and back again on a misty day. OK I guess, a bit of exercise. Lovely views I would imagine on a better day.nickywood116/06/2018

From road end parking. Good path to old house along shore then fainter lines up hillside. Heather bash last 50m. Trig in great location above the Sound of Harris.nordicstar28/04/2016
Up from the road end. Good views to Harris.jenx28/04/2016
Parked at end of road where there are two turning points. Through gate and immediately turn up hill following fence on the right, reach a gate through a decrepit fence and cross a small burn below a pretty waterfall. Hill was mostly rough heather and being tired made it hard going. Superb viewpoint for such a small hill.Campbell Singer03/04/2016

Up and down from road end. Just had to lock the bike which nobody else does on these islands.Eddie14/04/2003
From the end of the minor road descended to the rocks to make sure this walk was from sea level. Then made the short ascent to the trig past a lovely little waterfall on the way. From the top Harris Skye and the Uists could all be seen very well.garyhoney04/08/2001
From road end at Loch Portain. Second lowest Marilyn on list. Over heather and tussock, by-passing rock slabs and to top after 1/2 mile down and up. 15.15.arranc03/06/2001
