Pillar toppled and in 2 parts, probably hammered by scottish weather. Wet and windy today, no views, but a good traverse of this mountain

Broken in two. Lower half in shelter cairn, uprooted and leaning, retains FB. Upper half lies next to it, retains spider. Close to original location: used to be in depression in centre of shelter? Up via the two eastern tops, down via the west. Chilly evening; a view- just

Parked the car at Balvraid and walked in via Srath A' Chomair and up north east ridge. Trig point has been sadly snapped in half with top half lying on the ground. I couldn't see any evidence of it being chipped away at, so wonder if an almighty lightning strike has done this. Returned via Beinn na h-Eaglaise, Beinn nan Caorach and Bealach Aoidhdailean making it a very rewarding walk.

My Munro #81 climbed alone. Parked in Arnisdale and walked back west till I was opposite Eilean Rarsaidh and cut awkwardly up the hillside through the woods of the Coille Mhialairigh. Once out on open moorside the climb was much easier. and eventually a faint path was found that took us to the summit. Being a 'Munro Bag' rather than a 'Trig Bag' I paid no notice of the broken Trig Point at the summit, but was fortunate to have photographed it. Not that I'd mind having to re-do this hill again, the views were superlative.

Good day with brilliant views - summit snow-capped just ! Looking into Knoydart , Ladhar Bheinn looked resplendent along with its neighbouring Monroe's. We were not so fortunate 7yrs later looking in the other direction from those very summits.

Before trigging days so no photo. Remember it being a very scary ascent and descent with all the scree. But beautiful area. Heard cuckoo at Arnisdale.

Another fantastic view point. This my first visit, on my own before crossing to Knoydart (boat could be booked in those days). 2nd visit(with friends)also in assocation with climbing Lladhar Bheinn. Both great weather days and both prior to last few Munros before compleations (first mine, 2nd a friend's)

Inverness-shire. I led a small select group from work and we climbed this from Arnisdale, which is desperately steep.
