With the Richard Tibbetts organised boat, Duncan Philips from Cruach Haben. Thick mist almost jeopardised the trip, however circuit of the hill possible picking up the other two tops. Jenx's 2000th Hump, calculated after the event alas! With Bryher too.nordicstar02/06/2018

#5 of 10 island P30s. Landed SW tip of island, off NE tip. Still couldn't find trig bolt - buried under turf? Knoll to W at NM 66859 12316 about as high but too far to resolve with hand level - assumed lowerRHW14/05/2018
6th tump of 12 and the one to complete Garbh Eileach, on the 1st day of my three boat trips organised with Farsain Cruises, having explored the tops of Eileach an Naoimh and A'Chuli, landing at Sw tip and climbing to Cnoc Port Nan Aidhean and Cnoc Bealach an Tarabairt, descending Ese to cross the Bealach an Tarabairt then up the ridge to the top, recording 110m @ NM 66860 12318, continuing East to record 114m @ NM 67326 12486 and 112m @ NM 67328 12484. Descent South although it should have been East, incurring a very attractive traverse to the boat at NM67745 12330. Onwards to Don Chonnuill....Dazingdale14/05/2018
Group charter with Farsain Cruises out of Craobh Haven. Landed SE side, failed to find trig bolt (under grassed-over cairn?) then SW for the other 2 Tumps. Impressively rough island with several rock types. And EA nest as our boatman subsequently pointed out.RHW10/06/2015

Lovely island with deer and trees, I hope to return in August. Again there are a few choices for the top. Jim Bloomer took some abney readings with the true summit found eventually & what a view.Dugswell228/04/2012
This was going to be a quick grab because the summit was said to be unambiguous. However, not to be - another festive round of multiple lumps to guess which one could be it. Never mind, the view and weather were unambiguously good.Martin R28/04/2012
