Descended from Beinn Stac, directly towards the track near a house, going through a gate at NF7912 0939. Pleasant walk along the loch side, past interesting sculptures, along to the road junction and up to the summit. Descended W towards a waterworks structure, going through a gate at NF7941 1047, and along to the track at the waterworks. Down to the road and back to the car at the ferry port car park.LizH16/06/2024
A quick island visit. Walk up from Acairseid Bayphil7030/08/2023
Off the ferry from Barra at 7.45am and all four Eriskay tops bagged by 9.30am. Parked at Ferry CP and then anti-clockwise circuit of Beinn Cracabhaig, Beinn Stac, Cnoc Pairceanan and Beinn Sgritheann. Continued hot conditions meant it was an easy wander along sheep, cow and deer trods and across bone-dry sphagnum for most of the way. There is actually a waymarked path to and from Beinn Sgritheann from road to the west, which makes things even simpler. A celebratory breakfast in the Kilbride cafe completed a great morning.summitter14/06/2023
A circular walk with Alma Aurea. Beinn Sgritheann, Cnoc Pairceanan and then a loop back along the coast. Just beautiful views throughout. /Dmeltdiceburg31/07/2022

Solo. From Eriskay ferry terminal, having crossed as a foot passenger from Barra, walked up road to high point. More or less straight up to the trig point of Ben Scrien and the rocky rib that is the highest point. Down SE slopes a bit and then to Cnoc Pairceanan. Descended towards Loch Cracabhaig and found a gate in the fence. Descended to Pairceanan and continued to Ben Stack.pwbellarby03/06/2019

CW circuit of The Eriskay Trio - Ma-Tu-Hu. Visited the first two hills with Charlie (one of yesterday's Barra Head five island team). Charlie went back to his car for adventures further north & I carried on to the third hill. Had an hour to kill before ferry back to Barra - strolled along white sands, etc.ger24/05/2018
