At 799m, this is the highest peak in the Outer Hebrides, and a Corbett. On the southwest side of the peak are the Coire Dubh Slabs which are some 250m high and on the north side is Aonaig Mhòr where there are a few winter climbs.
One option is to turn off the A859 just north of Tarbert and go 1km along the B887 to Bunavoneader and from there follow the path a short way to then break off and follow the burn into the coire. Quicker though, is from higher up at the west end of Loch na Ciste where there is a layby off the A859. Slopes by the burn lead to a bealach where the southern spur of An Cliseam can be contoured before descending to a bright green grass patch within Coire Dubh; a short ascent then leads to the slabs.
