Caiteseal (Lewis)

Caisteseal (or Caiteshal) is a very remote hill on the Pairc peninsula, rising steeply across Loch Shiphoirt from Reinigeadhal. It's inaccessibility (which could be reduced with a boat) has led to it being dubbed by some writes as the hardest hill in Britain to reach in terms of effort.
