Day visit to St Kilda with Sea Harris- highly recommended. With 5h on the island, I did the circuit of Oiseval,this and Mullach Mor which left plenty of time to explore the village and see the St Kilda Wren. Steep, easy grass slopes with trodden tracks (sheep and humans). From The Gap, it was best to keep near as I dared to the precipitous cliffs- a more direct route would have been steeper, and involved walking nearer the bonxies. Clear- sunny at first, clouding over with a base well above the summits later.pwheeler12/05/2019

Repeat ascent, this time including clockwise round of Hirta's humps, from Village Bay. This time the summit was just above the cloud base but the sun made intermittent appearances through the mist.Topographer5716/09/2015
Sailed out of Leverburgh on Enchanted Isle for three day Kilda trip. Weather too rough to land Boreray so into Village Bay to pitch tents then wander around island.

Came around from Mullach Bi via Mullach Mor. It's interesting that the trig is 200m down the S ridge and some 54m lower than the summit.Chris Peart17/09/2014
