From car park at end of track, east steeply up to ridge then on to Uisgneabhal Mor and on to Teileasbhal, down NW ridge to trackdickscroop07/05/2024

From the Golden Eagle CP. Over road bridge and up heather and flush to Braigh an Fhais. Much easier as we progressed along the southern flank of Uisgneabhal Mor, becoming increasingly slabby. A fine summit and an equally fine there-and-back clamber to Teileasbhal. We next headed over to the boulder-strewn Sron Scourst, taking in Uisgneabhal Beag en route. The easiest way down to the track along Gleann Mhiabhaig was to zig-zag between the short cliffy-sections to the N of Gill-luachar. A great walk on a sky-blue day that took 5 hrs in total.summitter12/09/2023

Parked at Miabhaig bridge. Across the enclosed field then up to the broad shoulder north of Braigh an Fhais. Straight up the ridge from there.Owen B24/05/2023
With J on cloudy day via SMC book route. Cloud descended long before we reached the summit but you could feel the drops. As there was no view, we turned around and descended by the same route. Saw a cuckoo in flight near the bottom.NotReallyABagger19/05/2023

Out and back from picnic point on road to S. Would have liked to continue to Stulabhal but didn’t have time. High cloud no sun, light breeze, quite cold. St Kilda and Torridon both very visible. Rounsfell23/08/2020
From SSW. Parked at picnic area. Followed ridge NNE then N to summit. A race to the top with following cloud. Got 2 mins with top clear, spent another 55 mins waiting for it to clear, it didn’t. Visited summit rock, cairn and 2 other cotenders. With PM.CJM27/06/2019
From good parking at 105047. Headed directly up onto the ridge in increasingly sunny weather. A steady incline all the way. Just over 4 hour return with CM. Great views.bolton27/06/2019
Miabhaig- Uisgnaval Mor- Teileasval- Sron Aird- Miabhaig walk. This followed a pattern becoming familiar- up rough, pathless terrain considerably eased by abundant deer tracks, good underfoot above 400m, deflected on descents on the ridge by solufluction terraces and boulder fields. Good walk along ridge to a fine summit with extensive views on a sunny, breezy day.pwheeler15/05/2019
From start of track to eagle observatory. Over Creag na Speireig; rough heathery ground. Out to Teileasabhal next.jonglew27/05/2018

Having had a good day of island bagging, for the first time this week the high summits were clear of cloud so I wandered up in sun. Parked at Eagle observatory car park then totalled up. 1h40 up and 1 hour down.assynt_bob25/05/2017

Alone, from Bunavoneadar. Did Uisgnaval Mor ridge first then down and up to Clisham via Mulla-fo-thuath and Mulla-fo-dheas. Hazy sunshine through mist. Warm but windy on top. 8 hour walk, seemed hard going at the time! Camped at Horgabost.niallp25/07/1990
