2nd tump of 8 today with Charles Everett, 1st was Druim Mor on the mainland. Ferryman warned us that we might not get back over later as Force 8 winds forecast. Steep grassy/bracken covered slope then over a fence down and then easy track veering off for the final climb. Charles met another Marilyn bagger at the top. After the nattering we descended to the track via one fence leading us to the Gylen Tea house; one of the most exquisite tea rooms i have encountered-drinks and lemon cake were compulsory. Next, the Sw top, Cnoc na Faire.Dazingdale11/05/2018

Completed clockwise tour of island in 3 hours plus tea shop and Marilyn/trig.nordicstar08/06/2015
Climbed with MT in appalling weather, after a rough crossing. The rain felt like needles and the wind was so strong on the summit it was difficult to stand still.We took the track past Balliemore and made more directly for the hill from near the high point of the track.Sprog06/06/2015
Took ferry over (£4.50 return) to jetty at NM 83020 28646. Followed track west into hills past Balliemore Farm, forking left to take track to Barnabuck. Left it near its highest point to skirt south below crags, taking a heathery rake up to Pt. 175m. Then dropped down to marshy area, and followed boggy ATV track to minor bealach just south of the summit. A short climb brought us to it. Descended east by this ATV track, picking up another track north to Balliemore Farm and thence back to jetty. NOTE: no ferry between 12:30 and 14:00. Otherwise generally every 30 minutes, if passengers are waiting. With AT on a wild, wet and windy day.Man of Kernow106/06/2015

With MarionOik19/08/2000
A recovery day after an epic retreat from an over ambitious attempt on Raven Gully (Glencoe)_ with Darren evening before, and a midnight camp in rain and midges which continued all this morning, so threw tent in car - drove to Oban - booked in to a B&B (unheard of normally) -draped climbing gear, and clothing everywhere to dry, then to escape the fug and lethargy did this short outing across to walk up this marilyn.Chris Pearson14/08/1999
