Nice easy paddle out from St.Ninian's Bay at high tide so not too far to walk. Very flighty cattle in the field. The gorse seems to be encroaching on the pillar. Could become hidden quite soon.

The walk out to Ardnave Point from the car parking at Ardnave Loch was by far the hardest part. A quick and straightforward paddle across. Other than being on a small island, nothing particularly remarkable about the pillar

Easy kayak over from Laphroaig. No particular tidal streams to worry about compared with Orsay earlier. First (and probably only) time I've managed two of these little island pillars in a day.

Aware of the strong current between Orsay and Islay (up to 8 knots!) I'd carefully planned a kayak across on the slack water. Unfortunately I'd managed to print the tides for April not May and missed it by about an hour and a half! The water was certainly flowing pretty quickly but a bit of ferry gliding got me there and back without too much drama.

Just reading the other logs, I hadn't realised the pillar's previous history of disrepair. I was paying more attention to staying upright in the wind on the summit and the pillar seemed perfectly ordinary. I noticed the lack of a flush bracket, a missing cap and some concrete missing from around the spider. Looks like a good repair job to me.

I'm no fan of using a car to get to trigpoints (where's the fun in it) but this one had me beaten. Although it may be legally possible to cycle down the A303 there's no way I would. And it's not any better from the south with the A33 and the M3 (plus, after a GOML incident at Scotland's 2nd lowest pillar, I'd be wary of the obvious approach from West Farm). So, had a hire car for the day and did like everyone else and parked at the services. A thoroughly uninspiring pillar. Also it seems the Little Chef may be no more, currently being fitted out to become a Starbucks? At least the weather was nice.

Reached at the second attempt (stormy weather 3 years ago meant I didn't make it). A very windy day this time too (I'd earlier given up cycling from Lerwick to Walls turning back at half way and took the bus instead) but being a westerly, the short crossing over Easter Sound was sheltered enough to easily manage in my inflatable packraft. I doubt there would have been many other places I would have launched today! An easy walk up the track almost to the pillar.

Paddled out from Rubha Ban with a cheeky bit of portage between Ullinish point and Oronsay. The strong westerly wind (another "interesting" crossing) meant I decided to land at Geodha Chruidh rather than the more obvious landing on the western side. Very thick vegetation meant getting across the island was tough going. The sight holes are open and the bolt (with nipple) is clearly visible. Final island of this trip since the weather got much worse. Soay will have to wait for another year.

Paddled out from Toscaig with a reasonably strong north-westerly wind which made the crossing in the middle of Caolas Mor "interesting". A tricky (due to the thick vegetation) and uninteresting ascent to the pillar but more than made up for by the spectacular 360 degree views of Inner Sound and Loch Carron from the top. Best view under 150m in Scotland? Annoyingly my photos don't do the view justice. Pillar in very good condition with all its metalwork.

A strong south-westerly wind meant missing out on the more enjoyable paddle out from Gairloch and taking the sensible(!) direct crossing from Big Sand. Maybe I was just comparing it to the previous day's visit to Handa but Longa struck me as a slightly scruffy island with not a lot to recommend it. This is partly down the cattle grazing on the island I think. Pillar in very good condition with all it's metalwork.

Wind and tides made for a safer crossing by paddled out from and back to Scourie Bay. Very few birds about (a bit late in the year to be nesting I guess) and even the skuas seemed more interested than menacing. A fine island with impressive views back to the mainland. Like Eilean Nan Ron, another sandstone/conglomerate island, with completely different geology to the adjacent mainland (Pre-Cambrian gneiss)

First island trig on a north and west coast "quality not quantity" bagging tour. Paddled out from Skerray Bay (the pier was quite lively on a Saturday afternoon for anyone looking for a boat) along the south side of the island to the shelter of Mol Mor with impressively imposing Old Red Sandstone cliffs (very reminiscent of the cliffs at Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire and judging by the BGS iGeology app a bit of an anomaly in these parts). A steep but easily doable climb up the grassy cliff and up to pillar. In remarkable condition given the battering it must get from the weather. Asphalt plug.

An epic failure. Took a significant detour to get to it, cycling into the wind. Went the wrong way in Porthcawl and had to retrace my steps. Then discovered that preparations for a golf tournament meant I couldn't get to the pillar and reading the other logs discover the thing is buried anyway! Some pillars aren't to be.

Return visit and I see how I went wrong. The pillar is in the middle of a fruit row (currently an end row) and would be obscured in September when there is more foliage. And it's one of those annoying pillars not at the highest point. Anyway, all present and correct.

The fields have been recently ploughed so I had to take the long way round the field edges. 10/10 for expert ploughmanship avoiding the pillar!

The brambles have been cleared and there is a huge pile of rubbish - looks like the community garden is coming along. It's still not possible to legally get closer than the road and given the time of day I decided not to attempt climbing over the wall. The pillar is easily made out through two fences.

Not such a belle vue

I imagined myself as Moses parting the Red Sea as I crossed over at high tide in a howling gale with big waves crashing down on either side. A very impressive sight (though not my Moses impression). Was almost on my hands and knees getting to the pillar - there's not much room for a wrong step!

There is some serious redevelopment work going on in the lighthouse at the moment - completion spring 2014 according to the sign. The pillar is currently inaccessible and I wasn't able to catch a glimpse of it - I'll assume it's still there and will be unveiled with a new coat of whitewash in 2014!

Had to wait 3 days for a (small) break in the weather but then it was a quick kayak out from the harbour at Baltasound. Landed on the small sandy beach then up to the pillar avoiding the sheep sh*t and rabbit holes. The weather was starting to close in so didn't stay long. The paddle back was tough into the wind. The pillar looks slightly weather beaten with the base slightly eroded (probably the sheep) and an asphalt plug. The views would probably be pretty good on a clear day, unfortunately it wasn't for me.

I'd had the date in my diary for a while. The sailing club were having an open day (advertised on their website) so I sneakily went and bagged the pillar after I was through the gate.

My most adventurous and satisfying pillar yet. I cycled (and quite a bit of pushing) from Raasay YHA to the end of the road with my folding kayak in tow. Launched at Loch Arnish with a magical send off from some harbour porpoises. A shortcut through Caol Fladda and up through some disconcerting swell to the harbour on Rona. And then back.

Got to this one by kayaking out from Broadford (a first?). The approach to the pillar from the beach may be easier than from the road. Absolutely stunning views on the way out and back.

Fear not peregrinus, the pillar is all present and correct. It's a tiny island and the pillar is right where you'd expect it to be on the OS map and easy to spot (maybe relying on GPS was the problem!). I kayaked over from Broadford harbour and had the entire island to myself as the cottages seemed to be unoccupied.

There's something slightly odd about this pillar. If you view it from the back there is a bulge in it! I don't think the mold was quite straight when it was built. Never seen that before.

Judging by the other logs and photos, the brambles have really taken over and the pillar is invisible from the track. Fortunately a gap in the hedge and some recent bramble clearing for a new fence mean that it is just visible (though not reachable) from the field.

I've seen stone built trigs before but none as shoddy looking as this one! Was it built in a hurry on a Friday afternoon as the midges were biting? Otherwise completely unremarkable.

Given the location and (relatively) lowly height this is a surprisingly tricky trig to access. I managed the steep ascent from the north after bagging Beinn na Gucaig then back along the forestry track to Lundavra where I'd parked the bike. Cap still present.

Walked up from Stoney Middleton. A scramble up and over Froggatt Edge, took a compass bearing (though clear, the pillar is not visible from there) and a hard slog over the moor to White Edge. There are definitely easier ways to approach!

If approaching from the footpath to the east, there is no need (or excuse!) for climbing any walls. Bridgeman's directions (from 2005) are spot on. Lovely views spoiled only by the whacking great cement factory at Bradwell.

I think I had a similar experience to pjr. I parked my bicycle at the end of the track by the road, walked up field, hopped over a fence to the pillar but decided to walk back down the track past the farm buildings. I gave a nod to two blue coats (minions?) on a fag break and by the time I got to my bike a red coat (foreman?) was watching to make sure I left. Which I did. A nice trigpoint spoilt by the surroundings.

No need to nip through the (rapidly closing) gap in the hedge as previously suggested. Going a bit further up the lane gives easier access to the adjacent field then a walk along the hedge line brings you to a fenced gap in that hedge which can be easily and relatively safely climbed. Then its a short walk across the field to the pillar.

I think this one has probably been destroyed. The hedgeline marked on the 1:25000 map is definitely gone and going on the previous comments, where there was an open field there is now a field of farmed blackberrys(?). I couldn't gain access to be 100% sure due to new deer fence, it could have been hiding between some of the regimented rows but I don't think so. I'd love to be proved wrong though!

Could there have been a change of landowner since 2007? There is now a "Private no right of way" sign nailed to a tree and barbed wire wrapped round the top bar of the gate by the road. Obviously, having come all that way this was enough to make me turn round and go home ;-)

mickandshane's directions are spot on...except for one problem, it seems that the rough pasture is due to contain a new development of houses. When you get to the metal gate you are presented with a temporary fence and a huge mound of earth! It is still possible to skirt round the fence (head left) and reach the trig which seems safe from the development within the trees. However, once the houses are up, I don't know if it will be possible to access it!!

The view toward the trig point Current state of the housing development in front of trigpoint
But the trig\'s still there
