From Balvraid up and down the East ridge, via bridge at 866158.NormanW10/04/2017
Parked at Balvraid. Ascended via east ridge. Circuit of summit plateau. Great views to Kintail, Skye and nearby hills particularly Beinn Sgritheall. Descended along NE ridge from around NG827156 to Cnoc na Moine (see 1:25k map) and two forest rides nearby to north. The forest rides are non existent, however forest not too bad once established within interior - 250m of breaking deadwood branches to reach forestry tracks and return to start point via bridge at NG847163. With Lorraine.raffemeister22/10/2016
From Balvraid, over the nearby bridge, followed old track round to the right then sharp left for about 700 metres until its abrupt end. From there, a nearby gate leads onto the open hillside. From 854154 deer tracks lead steeply up onto the east ridge at 400 metres. Cold wind but excellent view.Topographer5712/10/2016

Post Marhofn 2015, post cold Skye w Jenx. At last a fine weather day. Parked at head of Glen Elg by farm and track up valley, crossing river on path over old suspension bridge. Took the fine East ridge to summits. Higher is the cairned top to the East. Back down the ridge to GR852152 at 400m where a deer worn line can be followed steeply down to river. Deer fence to cross. We'd seen the water was low and an easy crossing was made back to road near farm.nordicstar14/06/2015

From Balvraid. Walked up the glen to footbridge - not immediately noticeable if you are daydreaming, the clue is a wooden tripod. Then long way back on self on ridge all the way to top. Great views of B Sgritheall. Resisted temptatoion to short cut down tMartin R16/02/2012
From Balvraid in new walking trousers. On access road past Dun to a small suspension bridge made out of 4 fir trunks. Muddy path on other side up to grassy ridge near Skye pylons. Deer trods steadily up over 3 or 4 heaves, by-passing 2 rocky towers to sloping plateau to a large lochan. Mist came down and to top at 12.00.arranc12/08/2005
