The top of this hill can be reached by a short walk from the road end at Bearsdaire. There are spectacular views of the east side of Berneray and also across the Sound of Harris from here.
Keep to the posts marking the path as you start your walk. Please avoid lambing time.

Photographers Tip

Photographs from this small hill can be very spectacular. The light early in the day provides the best result for a photograph looking down the east side of Berneray. Late spring and early aurumn is probably the best time.
