One of the joys of running the hills in harris is that I rarely, if ever, meet anyone else. Harris folk invented social distancing way before it was a covid thing.
I climbed this hill and didn’t see a soul until i was 20m from the summit. Two women appeared from a different direction and we all reached the summit at the same time!
They said that their should have been four of them but their husbands had given in because it was too steep.
It was a steep climb but I was lucky enough to do it on a beutiful day. the views from the top were amazing. Check out the video to see what I mean.
I wouldn;t recommend the route I took. I only realised when I got to the top that there was actually a path. Next time, I’ll use the path instead.
Spectacular Views on a nice day but its not a route for inexperienced runners
There is a car park at the start of the run
Nothing nearby but there is a small shop in Leverburgh.
There are sheep in the fields at the bottom of the hill.
