Quick detour on Hebridean Waynickywood113/06/2019
On Hebridean Way (or just off actually).clivevilla04/06/2019
From the deserted house at NF888765, through a gate and deer tracks most of the way up. There are a lot of walls and fences shown on the map, all old turf walls long abandoned except one topped with a non-barbed wire fence. Cloud on the top ~100 ft came and went, the limited view being fascinating including the Lees and a world of water and rock where it was hard to make out the sea from freshwater lochs.pwheeler19/05/2019
From the derelict house - a clear sunny day and tremendous views.Chris Peart27/04/2019

From the car park at Loch an Sticir. With MoraBLACKHILL07/05/2015
Early morning. Parked at a deserted house at 888765. A short easy ascent on short grass and heather. As I approached the summit, rain set in to break a long dry spell. Continued to the Uig ferry.Topographer5721/09/2014
Is this the smallest Beinn Mhor? Gentle gradient all the way, following old heather covered remains of walls for a good part of the route.dandaran08/02/2014

Date is first visit. Notes from later...prosaic ascent, fine views. passing pl on rd summit to W: 888767 RHW03/08/2001
Cycled out early alone before breakfast from our B&B close by to the north on a beautiful morning. We had fled to the B&B to escape the noise and chaos at the youth hostel which had been largely taken over by a 'boistorous' school group one of whom during our short stay smashed a window and required me to use my first aid knowledge to deal with his bloody arm with glass sticking out - just like in one of those squeamish practice first aid sessions with fake blood, only for real.Chris Pearson25/05/2001
