Climbing to the top of this modest hill at 124 metres gives a fantastic 360 degree view of water, islands, beaches, and mountains. On a clear day St Kilda to west can be seen and Skye to the east.

Look for the sign 'Rueval Footpath' by the Council building just east of the crossroads on the A835.

The path starts as a stone track, soon passing over a cattle grid with a nice view of Ruabhal straight ahead. On reaching Loch Ba Una look for a faint track on the left marked by a tiny cairn which leads up the heathery moorland to the top.

Photographers Tip

Spectacular photographs are possible anytime of day looking north towards the mountains of North Uist across a maze of lochans, causeways and villages
