Where is the 10 plus button? The views from this trig are awesome. So much respect has to be given to the Ordnance Survey men who both located the site, then carried all the equipment require to built and survey from here. First Cullin, first Munro, blown away with the views that truthfully didn't spend as much time examining the trig as at others. Very fortunate to visit when visibility was so good.

Fantastic walk to this one from Sligachan, setting off half an hour before sunrise at 07:30. First time on to the Cuillin Ridge for us, and a spectacular sight it was on a perfectly clear and cloud free day. Superb.

A few cracks but generally sound. Cylindrical. No cap or plug. Fine rocky summit. From NE, Aultdearg Ho, good path then pathless to base of NW ridge; ridge itself has a good path (keep on or just R of crest for best line). In cloud with strong cold wind. Then to Portree Hotel where 71 Marilyn baggers and associates assembled for this years MarHoF Gathering.

One of the 22 Munros, Tops and Deletes of Skye visited between 22nd and 27th April 2011 in glorious weather. What an island, what a magnificent ridge. Guide recommended for the full outing.

Very retrospective log. Day uncertain but month and year correct. Condition of trig not noted. Parked at NG 424 258 and approached via Bealach a' Mhaim. A rather hairy descent via Am Bastir and on to the pub at Sligachan.

Excellent TP on the sharp Cullin ridge. Good cylinder shape trig. Amazing views. Bagged this on the way to Am Bastier. Walked up in clag but this cleared at the trig for a magical scene of the summits of the ridge peeking above cloud.

My 99th Munro and my first Skye Munro. Beautiful day but unable to go on to Am Basteir (climbing under Am Basteir and the tooth to the col between Sgurr nan Gillean and Am Basteir) as a rock fall meant a tricky down climb which we were unprepared for. Since then have climbed Am Basteir twice and Bruach na Frith again.

One of the easiest summits of The Ridge, and being on the corner, so to speak, made this an obvious target. They would have had nowhere to stand on Gillean or Am Basteir.
