|Parked at entrance to first field, views from B8086 from Scalasaig. One barbed wire fence to cross, steeply up to the higher N summit, slightly east following lines of least resistance to the elegant small cairn in the S summit, returning northwards through a dell ablaze with primroses..||Nick Down1||20/04/2019|
|B8086 and B8085 from Scalasaig to about 400 metres south of junction, then through long grass, bracken, and heather to north top. Occasional faints paths but slow going. Sunny but stiff breeze. Hazy view of Jura, Islay, Oronsay, and lots of Atlantic. Down roughly north-westwards to B8086 east of Machrins. Steep with dense and very scratchy vegetation (slow and unpleasant, not recommended), then flat bog before mown field. Once on road, westwards for Dùn Gallain.||mainnirnamfiadh||24/09/2018|
|First hill of the day, from a camp by Loch Staosnaig, quite a thrash from the track, through deep vegetation. I'd agree entirely with Dazingdale's height readings and the southern top is substantially lower. The link between the two was a thrash too.||Colin Crawford||27/07/2018|
|6th tump of 8 on a 30.3km Oronsay and Colonsay completion route starting from the Backpackers lodge near Kiloran House and climbing Dun Gallain, Carn Spiris, Beinn Oronsay, Beinn Eibhne and Beinn Arnicil, heading Nne over another knoll, recording 80m @ NR 37523 92842, thinking this was the top but then continued to the true top recording 85m@ NR 37626 93169, unless this another top! Another tricky descent Sse the Se towards Cnoc an t-Samhla....||Dazingdale||10/05/2018|
