Eabhal is a landmark visible from most of North Uist. Seeing it is easy, climbing it is not so easy. At 1138 feet, the difficulty is not its height. The difficulty is getting to the base of the mountain, as it lies some three miles from the nearest road. But the long walk in is worth it, for as you climb the mountain the vast, loch-spattered interior of North Uist slowly comes into view. Here are some photos of that view.
The first is looking to the northwest over Loch Obasaraigh.
