Great walk in nature. From a parking lot to the top takes almost 1 hour for someone who walks constantly. I saw even a guy running up and down! The walk passes thru a forest all the way to the top. There are some steep...More

On a clear day you get some fantastic views, but if the cloud is low then you are lucky to see the water, or much of anything. Its windy up at the top so wrap up and hold on. Not too hard a walk up.

Fyrish Monument is a nice walk through a wooded area along a reasonable path. The Monument also known as Gate of Negapatam was built by Sir Hector Munro to provide work for locals. The route does get steep in places but anyone with reasonable level...More

Hi, Once you take the boath turn off keep going for about a mile when you come to the trees on your left thats where you will find the car park. The car park area is in the corner of the woods and there is a small sign.
