Utterly gorgeous situation with pink granite flecks with lots of mica flecks catching the sunlight and yellow lichen plus wonderful views of crashing waves on the rocks and wonderful views all round to Treshnish Isles south rest and Rum and Eigg to the north.

Vgc, asphalt plug, classy location on granite outcrop overlooking the isle of Gunna, where I was in May. From Ceann Fasachd via the 53m dune summit then cross dunes, along beach, past houses and small burial ground, over damp pasture with lots of grass of parnassus, then easy pasture. Then to Hogh.

Argyllshire. It was a beautiful walk out to the point across Crossapoll Bay to Walkers Cottage, then on a compass bearing to the trigpoint. We returned to our start point by way of Feall Bay. There were good views of Gunna and Tiree. There is an asphalt plug. Alongside the pillar there is the circular disc marking a Hydrographic Survey Point.
