Seatrek RIB from Huisinis. Dropped off at north end of the island. Pillar is stone-built in encircling shelter cairn. Some minor chipping to top mortar screed otherwise good. Top cap missing, no plug; no sight holes. Extensive panoramic views.

Private boat charter organised by Rick Salter (thanks Rick). Very helpful boatmen dropped us off on the glorious beach @ NA964167 enabling us to walk over Sron Romul (Scarp) and the HuMP Beinn fo Thuath to the SE, to be picked up from the jetty @ NA988140. Beautiful day and fantastic views on the crossing.

Stupendous views to be had eastwards to the mountains and hills of North Harris and Loch Reasort. A genuine first rate island trig!

Drop off by Seamus and John of Sea Harris. Wet and windy with Jim Bloomer, Mat Webster and Michael Earnshaw, just about catching Jonathan de F who missed out the HuMP.

Another island hopping trip: Landed on beach on the north of the island and traversed the high ground to the Kyle. Good scrambling off the beach. Stonebuilt pillar is in a windshelter on Sron Romul.
