Summit: 2,621 feet NB154073

The Clisham is a mountain on the island of Harris in Inverness-shire. The Clisham reaches 2,621 feet and is the highest mountain in the Outer Hebrides and the only one to exceed 2,500 feet.


The easiest ascent of the mountain starts from the highest point of the A859 road between Tarbert and Ardvourlie (Aird a' Mhulaidh). From this point it is a climb up the broad southern shoulder.

A longer and more varied expedition starts at a bridge over the Scaladale River near Ardvourlie, from where the minor summit of Tomnabhal (1,811 feet) may be ascended before continuing on to the Clisham. Many walkers taking this option continue west then north along the ridge, taking in the summits of Mull bho Dheas (2,438 feet), Mulla bho Thuath (2,362 feet) and Mullach an Langa (2,014 feet), thus completing a round known as the Clisham Horseshoe.
