As written above this was a cache we had wanted to place for a while and we decided this was a perfect opportunity. 9 scouts and 3 leaders carried everything they needed to make a beacon at the summit.
This is not a climb that can be taken lightly, it is steep and a hard walk t the summit. The path can be boggy and rocky. The trig point is surrounded by a walled cairn and on a clear day you can see North Lewis, The Uists, Taransay, Luskentyre and on a good day St. Kilda. Amazing unforgettable views.
Allow upto 3 hours for your climb and a few hours to descend, please make allowances for short days in the winter.
Not a suitable walk for very young children.
We hope you enjoy the highest mountain in the Outer Hebrides.
There is a log book a guiding badge from the queens silver jubilee and a few other swaps. Please replace carefully.
Please use CITO and mostly enjoy.
The Clisham (Scottish Gaelic: An Cliseam) is a mountain on the island of Harris in the Western Isles of Scotland. At 799 metres (2,621 ft) it is the highest mountain in the Outer Hebrides and the archipelago's only Corbett.
The easiest ascent of the mountain starts from the highest point of the A859 road between Tarbert and Ardvourlie (Aird a' Mhulaidh), and climbs the broad southern shoulder. A longer and more varied expedition starts at a bridge over the Scaladale River (Abhainn Scaladail) near Ardvourlie, from where the minor summit of Tomnabhal (552 metres (1,811 ft)) may be ascended before continuing on to the Clisham. Many walkers taking this option continue west then north along the ridge, taking in the summits of Mull bho Dheas (743 metres (2,438 ft)), Mulla bho Thuath (720 metres (2,362 ft)) and Mullach an Langa (614 metres (2,014 ft)), thus completing a round known as the Clisham Horseshoe
