To avoid a long road walk back to the car park @ NG067999, park in lay-by @ NG093974. Walk NE along road to kissing gate @ NG094974 but don't get too excited as there is no path! I then headed in the direction of Sron Godamuil to NE and easier ground. Up to trig Ceann Reamhar and on ridge (easy walking) to Beinn Dhunh. Red hot day.

Parked at Losgaintir Graveyard then walked along some of the coast before heading up Beinn Dhubh, Beinn Losgaintir and Ceann Reamhar on a very sunny afternoon.

I started off at Luskentyre cemetary and then followed the coast around for a kilometre and a half before making my ascent to the summit of Beinn Dubh. The wind was super strong on top and I was mightily glad of the high stone shelter surrounding the trig for some respite.

vgc, metal cap, wide raised letters, standard Hotine, unlike its younger neighbour. Memorial plaque at foot of pillar. Stony grassy summit. A/c/w circuit with Ceann Reamhar, easy boggy descent to 094974 (gate W of burn).

Another monster view.. An evening visit after a day on the Shiants. St Kilda was the star attraction in the big view.

No details noted - from W, fine views, lower part of ascent boggy; magical @ sunset
