From the car park by the ferry port, through a gate, up the side of the fence, and over to the summit. On to Beinn Stac.LizH16/06/2024
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

Solo, then out to Beinn Stac.PeteF23/04/2022
From ferry car park. 2 slabs and a large boulder all contending for the high point. It was 90 mins after sunset but just enough light to see by.jonglew12/07/2021
