Uisgneabhal Mòr 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 Sròn 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.

Public Transport

Bus service between Tarbert and Huisinish.


Parking area on B887 at start of track up Gleann Mhiabhaig. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
