Uisgneabhal Mor, Teileasbhal & Stuabhal

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Uisgneabhal Mor is the second highest mountain in the Outer Hebrides, and with its close neighbour Teileasbhal looks impressive from the A859 west of Tarbert. Combined with remote Stuabhal the hills make for a grand and rugged hillwalk, with a long initial approach up Gleann Miabhaig enlivened by the rock architecture of Sron Scourst.


Good track for the outward leg, then rough, pathless hillwalking with some steep ground and boggier sections. Final section of descent is very wet.
