Suainebhal, “Sweyn’s fell”, is a great rounded elephant of a mountain that dominates Uig Bay. The ascent is straightforward and it provides an ideal summit for anyone who just wants to gain height quickly and enjoy the view. However it is very exposed and it can be decidedly cold, if not chilly, on the summit. So ensure you have wind proof clothing with you even on a warm day.

[This walk is described in detail and illustrated with Ordnance Survey map extracts in 'Walking on Harris and Lewis' by Richard Barrett, published by Cicerone Press 2010. Unless otherwise indicated, all images used here are copyright of the author.]
