Followed route but went down the cliff and up to the summit via the rock formations, mainly because it was blowing a gales and there was thick cloud.
But a good interesting route.

I was up here the week before in September and was lucky enough to get it good. Its a surpringly good hill despite its elevation I have looked at it from Portree many times but never bothered. Glad I did.

Near the summit following the ridge.

It's a cracking wee hill - like doing a hillwalk and clifftop coast walk rolled into one. Saw porpoises down int eh sound the last time I did it.
