YSM702 Beinn Nan Coireag. Decided to hit my closest YOSMS after work. 1.5 hour journey to get there. Took the car up the track and parked at the Scottish Water tanks. Then a very pleasant stroll along the track until the arrow pointed upwards. Only one way to go so up I went and quickly spotted the pillar. Lovely views from up here but the fence close to the pillar spoils the photo opportunity. Cheers.

vgc, metal cap, deep letters. Just outside deer fence; heather summit, cloud & rain, no view. From SSE, good track then N to trig, easy heather.
