Hebridean wonder
by Peter Walker  29 Mar 2015
The 'main' road south from Tarbert is mainly notable for the sumptuous coastline along which it passes (the beaches...dear lord, the beaches), and it climaxes in the unique little church at Rodel. After a couple of drives down here I was intrigued enough by the rocky hill that rises behind it to spend a morning on its exploration. It spoils you, it really does.

A minor road leads north from Rodel (NG048832 A), past a radio station and the rock-snuggled Loch Thorsagearraidh. After a smidge more tarmac I took to the rough hillside to the left at around (NG056844 B), making a pathless way up to the blunt spur falling from the summit ridge. The environs are utterly wild, but even with a huge amount of outcropping rock along the way the passage is astonishingly easy, and one can almost totally fixate on the vistas of nearby coasts and more distant islands.

Two tops rise from the broad summit ridge, linked by another very straightforward promenade along the rim of the northern cliffs; I saw an eagle along here, much to my fiancee's later annoyance. There is a trig pillar on the higher of the tops, and from here one looks over a huge expanse of rocks and fresh and salt water...there must be a lochan for every single person on the island, while out to the west on a clear day lies the fairytale archipelago of St Kilda. One of the greatest views I've ever seen.

I dropped south from the summit (there are a few cairns vaguely marking the way) before contouring under the rocks of Mullach na Stughadh to reach the sheltered Loch Thorsagearraidh. A clear track led along the north shore before I blundered southwards along a network of paths and through a bit of gorse to get back to the church.
