Day trip from Mallaig, nature trail past croft 3 then short distance NE up ATV track, then left up into forest and onto open hill to main ridge. Some bad ground in and just above forest, but it gets better higher up.Topographer5702/10/2019
KP, from Loch Scresort (Moody35).Vin06/09/2019
From Kinloch via the Nature Trail to where it starts to descend then dog-legged back keeping to the rocky terraces - the grass in between is hard going.Chris Peart02/05/2019
From Orval, followed the path from where the Kilmory and Harris tracks meet. Kinloch River easily crossed. Then awkward terrain to the summit trig. Wasn't sure about getting down through the woodland so headed SSW to where the path enters the woodland, into the teeth of a gathering gale on rough terrain. Then followed the very pleasant and mostly sheltered and reasonably good path through the woods back to Kinloch.Owen B17/06/2018
A quick up and back from Kinloch while waiting fro the ferry. Boggy path; tussocky slopes - keep top the rock outcrops!patrick07/07/2017
From Rum bunkhouse. Via nature trail westwards along wall to above the craft/caravan. Here the path splits, heading down, heading along further into woods and a rough path/track heading up on a diagonal between the trees. Took this to top of tress then gained the ridge and over a few sandstone terraces to prominent trig. Fine day after light drizzle start. Red Throated Diver nesting on lockan at 1/2 - 3/4 height. Return same way.N.Morters19/06/2017
An afternoon stroll, via the Nature trail path and then up the hill once out of the woods. The first bit seriously rough, with knee deep pillowy mats of vegetables, holes, bogs etc., but there are nice sandstone pavements to walk on higher up. Exceptionally fine views of Skye, Knoydart, the Long Isle, Eigg, Canna, etc, so it's well worth the struggle.Gill09/06/2017
Didn't plan to bother with this hill, but a very poor forecast for the afternoon made it a good half days walk. Using the old path (now a nature trail) and going up by Allt Airigh Thalabhart worked well; a trail beyond this led to the headwaters of the next burn- both burns turned by the sandstone terraces which gave a satisfying route- much on rock pavements- to the summit. Glad the cloud stayed off though. Back a similar way.pwheeler06/06/2017
Sunny but very windy. A little stroll whilst waiting for the wind to die down tomorrow. Decided to walk on to Mam Tuath.Wycombe Wanderer30/04/2017
Path from Kinloch then up the hill by the forest and on to the summit. Gets easier the higher you go.AndrewFinnimore17/04/2017
Muddy path from Kinloch to edge of forrest then clumpy grass to summit cairn and trig.m3doc07/04/2017
2nd ascent, from Kilmory Bay this timeMichaelF23/09/2016
From the track junction on the way back from Orval. Route works well from here.jenx27/08/2016
Cycle up from Kinloch. Used old paths to bealach before good ridge to Orval. Trig and adjoining Hump then to Mullach Mor.nordicstar27/08/2016
Walk from Kinloch. Along north side trail, then up through rough ground to summit. Descent west towards Kilmory track.CraigW13/07/2016

Tough rough going and running on empty now, with Darren towards the end of our 40km outing around the island in an enjoyably tough 26 hours between ferries,with a short 6 hour camp half way round. The community shop was a godsend for an overdose of biscuits, and we were first in the queue for a meal on the ferry back.Chris Pearson26/07/2012
Really hard terraced heather climb. Lots of bog to negotiate up top, a very 'ticky' hillock but had a nice sighting of red deer and magical evening views over West Rum and Canna to make it all worth while.Columba25/05/2012
Solo. From Kinloch Castle N and then W on path through edge of wooded area. Beyond trees took something of a slanting terrace going diagonally NE. Passed collection of huts of some age - might be pre-black-house houses. Returned over a couple of tops of Meall a' Gheirtein.pwbellarby23/04/2012

Over the bridge on signed path and on path up Kinloch Glen. Followed faint path to the right through a gap in the trees. Vile going over tussock and deep troughs and swamp. Very heavy going to edge of trees to find a deer fence blocking the way. Tall step stile to get over. GPS told me that I was too far east. On compass over foul moor, up and over 5 or 6 cross ridges to the column 9735 by a small pile of stones on a boulder. 16.30. Rotten hill.arranc28/05/2010
Solo. Did this hill from Kinloch while waiting for the ferry back to Mallaig on a fine Monday morning. No paths though so it's all over rough moorland.jonglew25/05/2009
Alone, Craig & Neil not fancying the heavy rain.Grinner01/07/2008
Got boat across to Holy Isle. Mullach Mor then back along West side of island - with Tony, Sophie, Nic etc - great!zoob01/06/2005
