Log #496. More or less direct route from main road after parking in pull-in above Ardanroin, via tower at Loch Scolpaig. Boggy between Cnoc Foshigary and summit, around Loch Sniogrivat. Route from Griminis probably preferable. [ExP-335/MiP-38/Rev-6/BM-39/IS-52/Other-26]

I removed the rope that MickandKim found her last year - no need for that to stay wrapped around the trig.

A lot of goml rubbish on the road to Scolpaig, but an easy and even more scenic route up via Griminish. Fine views from the top, up to Lewis and across to St Kilda. Pillar roped up.

a small and lovely heather hill with sea views to the north & west. This is currently used as a passive GPS station-plaque dated July 1999
