|I don't think many folk detour to this peak. Good views, as is along the whole of the ridge. Perfect weather. Company: Solo||iandesbottes||12/05/2018|
|parked overnight at The Old Man of Storr car park and in glorious weather but quite brisk wind finally made a one way traverse all the way up the Trotternish ridge. Came off it before Bioda Mor as I'd summitted it before and I wanted to get up Cleat and take a look at the two tricky other two little TuMPs off under the eastern cliffs. Great day had a sting in the tail. never got a lift and faced a gruelling 13 miles walk back which added another 5 hours till 2.25am Ouch! Deliriously tired.||vegibagger||02/06/2017|
|The best summit on my Uig- Beinn Edra- Hartaval- Kensaleyre traverse of the central part of the Trotternish ridge. A path from Creag a'Lain
to Boca Buidhe easily skirts this, and the buffeting on the way down to the bealch between them suggested the path but I gave this a go and it was calm, though it looked like it would be horribly exposed to the strong NE wind. The wind roared above, creating vortices of cloud now and then, but I could admire the superb cliff and gully scenery. I retreated back across the short, exposed hiatus that must be walked across to attain the very top before having lunch, but it remained calm.||pwheeler||17/06/2016|

|A long superb multi top run with Darren on a sunny day along the length of the Trotternish ridge from the bealach (left the car)to The Storr- then hitched back. Top is on a flat jutting prow with a distinctive rock platform close by.||Chris Pearson||20/07/2012|
