Rugged Run – The Clisham (Iain)

The Clisham is the highest point in the Western Isles On a good day it will reward summiteers with a great view across to mainland Scotland. On a bad day you will be rewarded with a very boggy, very steep climb and nothing to see from the top!

I’ve climbed it a few times and its fair to say I’ve had more bad days than good.

The forecast was good so I hoped this time I’d see something from the top. You can check out the video to see whether I did.

A bit of a slog but worth it for the view from the top.
