The south Harris coastline
Beinn Dhubh and its neighbour Beinn Losgaintir are reasonably lumpy hills by Harris standards, but their situation is almost perfect, and they provide an easy half-days hillwalking. The initial climb up the nose of Sron Godamuil is quite steep and rough; grassy terraces can be used to weave through the extensive slabby outcrops here, but experience suggests that it is better to keep to the rock given that it is generally just walking with the occasional steadying hand required. Certainly easier for a three-legged dog.
At the top of the nose the going changes to short-cropped grass studded with smaller stones, providing very easy going over Beinn Losgaintir and onto Beinn Dhubh. This is a simply magnificent viewpoint, south over the sea and sand and wilderness, and north to the main Harris hills. Lunch should be very leisurely on a fine day.

A blunt nose led WSW down a steep and sometimes wet slope to the sweep of the Traigh Rosamol sands and a minor road leading back to the start.
