Boatload 2 on my trip organised via Mull of Kintyre Sea adventures. Three at a time transferred to Sheep Island first via Peter with his smaller boat. Lovely rock to start walk and island covered in Wood-sorrel and Bluebells with a distinctive sub-species of Soay sheep. I walked down to look at Natural stone arch. Lovely view to Glunimore...Dazingdale20/05/2023
Dropped off on Sheep island first before talking Sanda. Gorgeous encounter with tiny Soay route lamb only couple of days old... Bluebell strewn top... Saw two seagulls nests each with three eggs. Slovenian guy Milly saw numerous ones asking northern edge of summit plateauvegibagger20/05/2023
On boat 1 with Mull of Kintyre Sea Adventures rib from Campbeltown, organised by Darren. Transfer to the island via tender, at SW corner, lots of submerged boulders making it tricky. Lots of nesting gulls, so up and back to the summit.Minto20/05/2023

North Coast Sea Tours (Derek Gordon) landed us at south west side of island onto bouldery beach using plastic dinghy. Lots of boulders in sea on approach but managed to find somewhere to land the tender. Ascended with Alan Whatley and Charlie Scott. Debated which of the 2 mounds of grass on top was highest and did them both.assynt_bob25/04/2019
