From Tathabhal on the way back to the track.Chris Peart05/06/2023
What a fabulous hill! Walked practically the whole way up on rock slabs, a gentle slope all the way to the summit. Fabulous views. Descended west to the track, leaving Minto behind to bag four more Tumps! Got a lift back from the estate stalker- Simon. Great day despite the awful weather in the morning.Dangerous Dave19/09/2022
Along the track from the north. Over the bridge before the Loch steeply over rock bluffs. Met DaveG on route to TathabhalN.Morters13/09/2022

See log for Tathabhal - excellent hillThearlaichdubh19/09/2016
Anti-clockwise circuit of the Uig hills. Two great ridges. Very craggy in places so challenging even on a fine day. It was a bit hot today. More like walking on Crete. 3 Marilyns and 4 humps.jenx09/05/2016
Parked at track - road junction and with Jenx walked the track then the seven Uig hills. Great clear sunny day, perhaps too hot as had to search out water sources en route. 9.5hr circuit, superb rocky hills.nordicstar09/05/2016
Up the front from the N end of Loch Reonasgail at the end of the day, with permission to 'go for it' from the stalker after encountering him in the morning with clients.Eddie28/09/2015
