I walked up from road. It is very heavy going as the heather and moss are deep and lumpy. The view is great although it was hazy. I could see the outer isles and the Cuillins.

A nice walk from a car park near the end of the road. The day was very misty so the view was poor hence the score but on a good I sure it will be very good looking out over the Little Minch to the Long Island.

Very easy to get to. There is a car parkon main road and then a short walk. Also there is a board telling about a brotherhood of monks who lived in a settlement down on the shore. The weather today is very foggy and so the view was not good.

This is located within a FC forest. After searching around I came upon a tent and after shouting "Is there anyone there" and got no reply I looked inside and there was the trig point. See 'photos!

I frequently walk up and along the cliff top overlooking Oisgill Bay and the Little Minch. I found this TP shown on an old OS 1:25000 map and first found it in 2007. On a good day the views are great when you can see from S.Usit to Harris and further N.

It has been a great day, plenty of sunshine so I decided to visit this one as I was traveling from Glendale to E Renfrewshire. The views were very good. No clouds on any of the mountains. The pillar is in good condition except for a lump of about 4 ins out of the corner to the right of the FB.

The walk up to this point is very wet peat bogs.The view is excellent overlooking Loch Dunvegan and the vilage as is the view north and west to the Outer Isles and south to MacLeods Tables and the Cuillins.My camera ran out of batteries and my spares were flat therefore I was only able to get 2 snaps.The weather was fine but there was a cold but light wind. The hill was empty , no sheep or other livestock and I only saw 3 snipe. Might be something to do with it being the Sabbath!

Visited with my son but did not log it at that time. The cloud was just on the top ( usually called as having the table cloth on)otherwise I'm sure that the view would be 10 out of 10.
