Log #498. Had booked dinner at the lodge, so quick run up the hill from the car park at Barpa Langass. Cracking dinner, sweet potato and chickpea curry. Camped on small patch of grass opposite car park. [ExP-337/MiP-38/Rev-6/BM-39/IS-52/Other-26]

Walked from Langass hotel via the stone circle, returning past the cairn and back down the road to the hotel. Ground boggy in places but trig in good condition and good views.

Parked at the cairn carpark and walked up a wettish path to the pillar. Great views all round including the snow covered hills of South Uist and South Harris

Splendid views over the amazing scenery of North Uist. Trig point is on a well waymarked circular walk that takes in a stone circle and a chambered cairn (sadly the latter is currently not safe to enter because of a rockfall)

Wasn't expecting such amazing views from this little hill top. Did the circular walk including stone circle and chambered cairn.

this one gets a 9 basically for the experience. Saw at least 2 and heard 3 Golden eagles in the small wooded area below the trig, also spotted a short eared owl. Add to that the stone circle, cup marks and chambered carin, what more does a trig need to offer.

vgc, plastic plug, peaty heathery summit, fine view of Loch Eport & Eaval. From NW, car park, good track to chambered cairn then dampish waymarked path to summit.

Crawled about in the cairn, then wandered up the bone dry bogs for another fine view point. Plastic insert.
