Stormy weather so just this little hill today. With B and R.jenx14/09/2019
Quick bag straight up after 09:25 ferry ex Barra. Quite rough along the ridge but views made it worthwhile. Saw BP Charlie cairn on beach near footThearlaichdubh05/06/2019
After ascending Ben Scrien and Cnoc Pairceanan and descending to Pairceanan. Walked along rather rough road to west end of Acairseid Mhòr. Went up past Stations of the Cross, which are on a cliff, and then S to Ben Stack. Went a bit E of N to reach the road on the descent a bit easier. Along road to ferry terminal for return to Barra. Weather good.pwbellarby03/06/2019
Walk from ferry terminal in grey weather over rough sheep pasture to cairn on slab, then on to Pairceanen.Denise 18/05/2019

CW circuit of The Eriskay Trio - Ma-Tu-Hu. Visited the first two hills with Charlie (one of yesterday's Barra Head five island team). Charlie went back to his car for adventures further north & I carried on to the third hill. Had an hour to kill before ferry back to Barra - strolled along white sands, etc.ger24/05/2018
Local bus service. All 3 Eriskay hills done. This one via trackless west ridge and then directly down to Acairseid Mhortrimarc210/10/2017
Roadside parking at NF 7926 1007 for a walk encompassing the 3 Eriskay hills. With Carole Engel.jonglew18/08/2017
From the harbour immediately to north of hill. Ample parking behind harbour and then along minor road. At bend in road look back and see the 12 stations of the cross painted on the rock face ascending to a cross. Leave road shortly after and make another ascent.Campbell Singer12/04/2016
