Logged Descriptions  (logged by 64 users, only the latest 50 shown - Show all)ByDate of Ascent
Bike from Ulva ferry. Road dry and easy going on a mountain bike, but the short sharp uphills soon add up. Ascent mainly by animal tracks from col above the graveyard. A southbound descent was bad news, deer fences, brambles and bog at the base of the hill. Excellent weather, 5hr round trip.fasgadh10/04/2019
Anchored in Gometra harbour with MVW, DR from main path then to summit Admiralty trigpoint, ground bit rough as no paths, finished in sort of circular walk. Very humid with some good vies of Hebrides and Staffa and isles.Frank12/08/2018
Ferry from Ulva Ferry then cycled as far as Gometra bridge in grotty drizzly conditions. For such a little hill it's quite tricky with false summits and loads of bracken and Heather to contend with. Also bagged Beinn Chreagach on the way back.NormanW12/07/2018
Morning ferry, cycled to Gometra on the tack. At high point on track bear right to small woods on animal tracks that continue mostly to summit.N.Morters19/04/2018
Cycle out from Ulva ferry then lunch in the BoathouseMountain Goat02/05/2017
Quite complicated to reach the top even once over on Gometra. Heading up from the bend in the track after the bothy its best to go off to the right. Plenty of helpful animal tracks. Bikes were useful, though not easy on the rough track. Plenty of time for both hills between first and last ferry.jenx22/08/2016
Left bike at bridge because the track deteriorated considerably once on Gometra. Walked past settlement to end of track and up western slopes. Eventually located summit, tricky due to sea fog and unfortunately had no view. One of the more memorable Marilyns, requiring 3 ferries (from Fort Wm) and a bike to reach this remote spot.AndrewFinnimore17/06/2014

From the Ulva ferry pointBLACKHILL25/04/2011
Trig revisit. Flattish heathery summit, great view. From high point of track, keep R of heathery slope, on grass & bracken. Ulva ferry 9 til 5 weekdays. The 2 trigs in <5h but they deserve better.RHW24/03/2008
Got first ferry, pay on return. On track for 5 1/2 miles of up and down about 250' above sea. Track very rutted and all potholes were full of water after yesterday. After 2 hours onto Gometra island over a small bridge. Another 1 1/2 miles passing cottages before a faint path uphill through heather to higher ground. Bracken thrashing finding deer paths to a heather slope to final prow and top at 13.00. Stout 4' cairn 4m from Vanessa 10508. My 950th Scottish hill. 15 1/2 m - 6 3/4 hrs for day.arranc06/09/2006
Cycled along track from the ferry.Eddie10/07/2005
