Walked up from the campsite without realising this was here as nothing shown on the map. Spotted the bolt first then the remains of the pillar. Super day for a walk up on a warm sunny day.

Wade through the snow, not a chance of finding the route but thanks to two fellow walkers who helped us out...wonderful views across the "island of Ardgour", burnt from sun and snow but worth it

Nice walk up in the morning, good views most of the way. Trig is in pieces, in a pile.

40cm of a cylindrical trig standing in situ, 5m E of summit cairn, with original Bolt still visible. Most of pillar remains are stacked around the stump. Concrete base and large Bolt between trig and cairn: OS archive states this Block replaced the Pillar in 1972. Great summit and view. Climbed from ESE, Scotstown, with 2 Yeamans en route and Graham Top to S.

Leisurely walk on a scorching hot day. Didn't know about the bolt so didn't look for it.
