By kayak from the bay east of Torr na Ba. Bracken dormant,too early for midges. Explored Eilean a Phidhir, Eilean nam Breac, An t-eilean Meadhoin and Eilean Ban. The only problem was the Rhododendrons at the summit of Eilean Ban. No sign of Morag.bjewing02/04/2022
Kayak from picnic site. Easy paddle though watch out for submerged rocks in the dark water. Rough-going through deep moss, bracken and trees.AndyS25/06/2021
Packraft from Bun an Loin. Landed on the west side of the isthmus south of the hill. Ascent not difficult but lots of deep moss and fallen trees. A wonderful glimpse of what the lower parts of the Highlands should look at. Pottered around the other islands afterwards.fasgadh02/05/2021
Kayak from picnic site opposite Eileen Ban. Landed SE corner, mostly just bracken and fallen trees to contend with. Also landed on Eileen a Phidhir ( apparently P29.9 ) big mistake due to the additional obstacles of many. big fallen trees , Rhododendrons, brambles and midges.chalky195306/08/2020
