With Dave Roeder. Parked with some difficulty at car park at Claigan (14:00). Walked ENE past the souterrain and up the winding track to about NG 246529, then more roughly direct to the summit (15:20). Sunny and very warm. Hazy views. Returned by same route; finish 16:10.dbb15/05/2024
Parked Coral beaches cp and followed track up most of the way, still a bit of huffing and puffing involved across rough moorland. Great views across to Harris etc.colazione08/03/2024
From the coral beaches car park at Claigan along the great track climbing the NW side of the hill. Left the track just after the tight bend and climbed easy ground between the two burns to reach the plateau. Crossed boggy section to summit avoiding wider sections of two guarding moat like water courses.SpudGunn20/02/2023

From Coral Beaches car park via track and west flank.Winterfloodian07/09/2020
7 and last one of the day, cycled up the track from the parking area in Claigan, not great as it was just grassy and soft but did manage to get out 1.5km to a gate. From here continued up the track until due west of the top then straight up. Great day and stayed in the Stein Inn.Simon Winton13/03/2020
From car park at road end, busy! 6 cars parked on s wild windy day, suspect for the beach, noticed a plethora of no parking on nearby crofts suspect hellish in summer. Up the track then easily over the final heathery rise to summit. 50/60moh wind blew me uphill. Clear save for a hail squall. 2/4 MarilynN.Morters22/02/2020
Parked at Claigan. An easy stroll up the track to the high point then up to the summit quite easily.Gill29/09/2019
Went to beach car park. Full, and 5 cars hovering for spaces to be released. Returned to o/s 43m spot height, 5 spaces in the bend there. Backtrack to beach, old track about 100m off to right from the parking, head for small stand of trees, eventually you have to scale the deer fence this way. So, so busy nowiangalbraith28/08/2019

From Claigan up track then on to summit. Along ridge to the trig and back down to the busy car park.NormanW05/06/2019
Glad to escape the mayhem of Coral Beach car park for the solitude of the hill. The track now sports a deer fence high gate. I left it a couple of hundred yards short of the high point, lured by a grassy ridge heading in the direction of the summit.Nick Down130/05/2019
Dropped P, I, B off at Dunvegan Castle. Parked at Claigan. Easy walk up the grassy track, then across dry short heather / grass to the summit. One leap across a peaty pool, otherwise easy. Awesome clear views to the Outer Hebrides and all across Skye on a sunny day with a light westerly.Owen B12/05/2019
Pity about the crazy car park. Followed track up as high as we could and then up hill. A couple of rises to catch you out but saw summit over peat hags. Beautiful views of the water and islands.elizyanne19/04/2019
Another day off from Winter Munro bagging due to the awful weather forecast. From Claigan, via the excellent 4x4 track to just below Creag-a Ghuail, then deep grass across a saturated moor to the top, making a little use of occasional traces of an.tx.Isbjorn13/01/2019

From the parking area at Claigan. The track east and then SE makes for an easy ascent to 245529 then a direct strike to the summit. Solo 80 minute return.bolton03/10/2017

Pleasant while the path goes- from Claigan, past the souterrain. Then a slog through thick vegetation most of the way. Cloud blew on and off from the sea on a calm day, best hill views were of Macloed's Tables. Coral beaches walked to later; an interesting areapwheeler11/06/2016
