Visited from the busy Coral Beach car parking area , followed the track past the "Souterrain" before ascending the hill along side the fence finally across the peaty moorland to the Trig ,which shows damage to both bottom corners of its FB face , with an original cap and one open sight hole - an excellent viewpoint

A bit crumbly at base/FB level. Metal cap, wide rasied letters. Fine view. Straightforward ascent via track from car park to W, although gate barbed-wired.

This trig is about a mile north of the summit of Beinn Bhreac - but almost at the same height.
