There are spectacular views from here of the causeway across the Sound of Eriskay, and across the many islands situated in the Sound of Barra.

Eriskay Ponies freely graze the slopes of the hill.

Good strong footwear and suitable bad weather clothing advised as weather conditions can change very quickly.

Photographers Tip

Photographs of the village and Causeway, or across the Sound of Barra give best results on a morning taken from near the summit of Beinn Scrien
