Parked in Burnham Deepdale across from petrol station and made way across the marsh. Had wellies on but still found myself waist deep in retreating seawater. Lovely little island with great views of empty beachThe-Z-Man10/03/2020
Paddled from Ramsey island, having commenced at Brancaster Staithe. Landed on muddy beach at the RoW and followed the vegetated but well defined footpath to the hut ( occupied by Natural England contractors) and then up onto the grass- covered sand dunes to its NE. The HP was obvious with contrasting views to the peaceful green- grey saltmarsh and crashing waves and golden sands. There were a few seals. Nice paddle back in lighter winds and with the tide to Brancaster Staithe.Denise 21/10/2019
On return to Brancaster Staithe after visiting Ramsey Salt Marsh, by kayak. Land at start of the path by NT sign on bank. Hut being used by a group of friendly lads contracted to do some strimming - no doubt conservation work. Distinct high point amongst the large dunes - marram grass stabilised sand dune. Felt a lot higher than 7m to me.RichardM21/10/2019
Followed the path before low tide, still up to my shorts for two of the crossings then path to lovely hut before up to summit on a wet Saturday afternoon. I noticed 3 people off exploring the far western edge of the island before I headed for the summit.Dugswell203/09/2016
Crossed at low water on a spring tide and, as others have said, there was still knee deep water in the main channel (and not far off that in the first channel the footpath crosses soon after leaving Burnham Deepdale.)AndyS03/09/2016
With Adrian, from Burnham good parking opposite Deepdale bunkhouse, followed mapped path which is quite well used. Crossed 1hr before low tide and returned almost on low tide 1 day before spring tide, knee deep so seems independent of exact tide state. Appears tidal from map with saddle further E at TG830457? Agree with JG wrt HP location just NE of the charming Scolt Head hut. Lovely walk on a sunny pmRHW22/05/2016

From Brancaster Staithe following quite closely to the FP marked on OS 1:25k. This is not a tidal island, needed to wade across 20m or so of knee depth water, waders would do it, but not normal wellies. This was right on low tide, but didn't check if it was a spring when it could be a bit lower. Also lots of slippery mud about, but not deep. HP is behind a well equipped lodge/bothy on quite a high well-colonized grassy sand bank. HP of 19m and a GR of TF 80871 46656, both a fair way off from that given here on HB.jonglew23/01/2016
