Parked in what might be a newish car park opposite the standing stone. Up the road to a field gate, then a very bad cattle track and just as bad at the end of it and out on the moor. 2 heather-clad outcrops at the top, unsure which is the high point so went to both.jonglew16/05/2024
1st hill of 8 today. Parked up near reservoir then walked down to gates and took track that leads to open fell. Track has been cattlelised so had go on the hardened sides to avoid the worst of the goo. 1st outcrop is marked as a fort followed by the summit knoll with a few high points to check out. Descent to fence the pasture before descent to same outward track. Onwards to Carn mor.Dazingdale10/05/2024
Only two logs for this hill prior to today. Then 13 people turn up to help celebrate my 3000th Tump, and Rob Woodall's 13,000th. A friendly farmer directed us to a better start to the hill rather than through his field with cattle.Minto04/04/2022
With large group for double celebration - Rob's 13000th Tump and Jonathan's 3000th Tump.Tony J04/04/2022
Parked on the edge of Port Ellen below the school. Up road then minor road to meet the helpful farmer who was about to move his cattle. So he directed us to go along the road a bit further then up the track to Brahunisary Farm & then to make our way from the back of his farm through a couple of fields onto the Tump. Thirteen hungry & thirsty Tumpers turned up for the party.Dugswell204/04/2022
My 13000th Tump, thanks all for company. 3 summits of similar height. From SSW, walked up from Port Ellen, met farmer who said to go via farmhouse as he was taking cattle down the more direct route. Wet n windy but a nice occasion.RHW04/04/2022

Nice hill visited for the double tump celebrationAdrian04/04/2022
Despite the date I failed to co-ordinate with the party, setting off too early and hanging around in the wind and wet near the summit for as long as I could suffer. Not long enough, I fear. Wish I'd met the farmer on the way up; I saw him on the way down, after I'd negotiated the slurry filled track and cattle pitted fieldsColin Crawford04/04/2022
One of the 13!Dangerous Dave04/04/2022
With Dave Roeder and about 10 others to celebrate Rob Woodall's 13000th Tump and Jonathan's 3000th Tump. Wet and windy, with cloud over summit till after we left.dbb04/04/2022
