6/7 on a cycle round the north of the Island from Arinagour. Left bikes at the wire fence then quick nip up to Clachard, then along to visit burial Ground on beach, admire daffodil field, then quick nip up A Chroic from road, then on to end of road, for epic walk along from Sorisdale over Meall na h-lolaire, Meall nan Uan and Carnan Mora, and back to bikes - not as bad as expected but quite draining. Then found reserves of energy to pick off Beart an Fhir from small field just near the 'dual carriageway' on the road, pleasant climb through the rocks, and then from the bridge by beach up to Creag nan Clamhan (I found the nasty gully, very scratchy - avoid as advised). A day of variety, and great views, but some rough walking. Needed the local gin!nickywood122/04/2022
Parked where we could at the side of the road. An awkward walk in over rough ground, though the summit was a pleasant place to be once you got there!LizH22/08/2019

With Jon Glew after visiting trig NE of Elleraig. Best to come in from bridge at 244632.Thearlaichdubh03/09/2018
Quick nip up 4 hills before the ferry departed. Probably should have gone from Cornaigmore, but instead drove to end of the track at Bousd and went from NM 2526 6338, taking a near enough direct line. Just 1km each way, but rough and boggy ground. Nice top though.jonglew03/09/2018
After Creag nan Clamhan. B8072 to where road splits, through gate marked “Cornaig More” and along south-west side of hill as far as gate, then up left on to ridge to approach summit from south-east. Completion Tump on Coll, and 1000th logged top. Rain approaching, so celebration muted – morning roll with smoked salmon, and pineapple Lucozade. Dark clouds out to sea westwards, but Lunga (Treshnish) visible in other direction. Down by slightly more direct route to Cornaigmore, then B8072 towards ferry before being offered (and accepting) lift into Arinagour from near cemetery.mainnirnamfiadh29/06/2016

Interesting route finding through little passes. Kept expecting to find a gang of outlaws hiding. Great looking black sheep. Views excellent.Martin R10/05/2014
