Boat charter with SeaScape Expeditions from Kinlochbervie harbour. Last of 10 islands for the day, and the best by far. Circumnavigated the island looking for an access point, eventually landed just E of the southern point. Nice rock ramp leads up to the grass line, lovely top.jonglew28/05/2024
On the RHSoc trip from Kinlochbervie. Saved best SIB for last of the day, much easier than looked, good ramp gave access.PeterD28/05/2024
Visited with an RHSoc trip out of Kinlochbervie, but on this occasion I didn't step on to the Island, instead watched 10 of my fellow baggers make it look easy. I have unpicked summit reached box to show I did not bag it.NormanW28/05/2024
10 SIB trip on a Seascape RIB arranged by Steve Gillions. 10/10 Landed on SE corner, then up slabs slanting left: looks iffy from the boat, but is wide with an excellent crack up it. Then short vegetated gully, followed by easy thrift-covered ground. A cracking island, definitely the best of the day.PGCE28/05/2024
Landed SE side near S end, up wide ramp slippery in rain, good to have microspikes. Across pink thrift slope to pink feldspar summit, narrower E outcrop perhaps slightly higher. Thanks to Derek and Integrity crew for getting us there. En route from Tongue to KyleskuRHW22/05/2019
Brian Ewing was the first to the summit followed by myself.Dugswell219/05/2019
Landed on east side with North Coast Sea Tours (Kylesku based). Ascended sloping rock shelf in a southerly direction from the middle of the island on east side then once up rock ramp scrambled up broken terrain to summit plateau. Lovely island with good amount of vegetation on summit. Nice views of Sandwood Bay too. 240th SIBassynt_bob19/05/2019
