From Carishader. Summit cairn impressive with marvellous views. And stood on the high point.NormanW14/05/2019
Across weir 063310, easy parking. Round the hill to the left, stay in valley until the first ascending burn of note, 078318. Up from there. Mostly sunny but cold, brief snow shower on top with our lunch. Breathtaking vuews again.iangalbraith11/05/2019
Good parking at bridge 103 320. Over Aineabhal to Suaineabhal. Rough all the way.PeteN30/12/2018
Crossed the weir easily at the road end 063310. A decent path runs easily to the north side before heading south to the summit. 2 hour return with CM. A great day in good conditions.bolton18/07/2018
From weir across to highest point on lower slopes. Then N up to summit. Good going. With PM.CJM18/07/2018
Paddled across river by weir then found a good path up the lower slopes before turning south to the summit.AndrewFinnimore03/05/2017
From NB063310 near water treatment works. Waded across weir and then direct approach up steep broken cliffs. Excellent views of the whole of Lewis from the top. Returned slightly further to the North to avoid steepest ground.raffemeister16/04/2017
From track to NE near Otter bunkhouse then followed river to avoid some of the rocky undulations. Another excellent hillThearlaichdubh16/06/2016
From near the otter bunkhouse, Miavaig. Track then straight up the drainage line. Great viewpoint on first really clear day out here.nordicstar08/05/2016
Looked at weir crossing but too much water that way. A good route from the bridge though. Cuckoo kept us company.jenx08/05/2016
From Cairisiadar, up the track, across the moor and then the Allt na Gile Fraoch. There's a grassy gully above that, and then onto the summit plateau. The views are gob-smacking.Gill24/12/2015
Solo. Climbed from west. Crossed river say 200m north of weir where river is widest. Used wellies to cross river, and left them on east bank for my return. Lovely hill.Bobf19/05/2015
Otis, Dagnis and DagmaraGlenford20/09/2014
Climbed with Dagnis Dancitis, Glen and Otis Laws on a sunny Saturday afternoon. Walked over the rocks by the weir then followed a bit of a path towards the summit passing Anne, Eric, Campbell and Mat on their way back down.Dugswell220/09/2014
Up down up down up.dandaran10/11/2013
Started from Coirisiader - parked near the Ceilidh band (that will make sense when you get there). Followed track west and took less obvious left branch. When it peters out it is case of PYO route through boggy ground. Gets better the higher you go. Hardier souls (without a back injury) than me will add on the two Humps.Martin R03/10/2013
With Mora, from Cairisiader,followed track from nb094333BLACKHILL01/06/2012
From NB 062 311summitsup12/06/2011
There was a 3' gap in the weir at the end of the road south. Trek across uneven moor with a lot of downs as well as ups, including a final trough at the foot of the slopes. Sharp rise up ridged grass steps to the first of some rocky slabs. Scramble up rocky falls onto a large rock covered area sloping up to top at 12.40. Large neatly built cairn on a huge overhanging slab. Met a young couple with child coming up - first people met on a Marilyn for ages.arranc25/06/2010

From N side of road bridge. A bit of a ringer for Dumgoyne - straight up.Eddie19/07/2008
