Walked up to The Gap from Village Bay, found the going so good I decided to add this summit to my walk. Cleats (hollow cairns in which the St Kildans stored dried food) in rows all the way up this hill; sheer cliffs on the otherpwheeler12/05/2019

fabulous circuit wander in calm almost windless day over Hirta with Martin Richardson, on my first visit to St Kilda. Along village street, up the winding road to the west over Claigeann Mor to Mullach Bi and NW out to An Campar then east down across the valley and up to Mullach Mor across to Conachair down south to the trig and round by cliffs out to Oisebhal and back to the village.

fine summit & view. circuit from Village Bay RHW06/05/2003
I loved this top and the descent / views to The Gap. Alas I didn't have the time (& legs) to revisit when I spent the night on 22/09/19 camping on Hirta. Also no incentive as the flag was right down most of the time.signyred12/08/1966
