Minor damage to top surface. BSM style FB. My penultimate Scottish trig pillar. From Affric roadhead, with detours to two outlying Sim summits, down via Sodhail. Dreich day but mild and less windy than of late. Day of the Scotland Cross duathlon event, Morvich to Beauly

Walked in from Chisholme Bridge ascending Sron Garbh & then the superb ridge walk over/round the pinnacles of Stob Coire Dhomhnuill to Carn Eige which as you would expect is an excellent viewpoint. Headed North to Beinn Fhionnlaidh before returning around Carn Eige to ascend Mam Sodhail. Followed the SW ridge & eventually met the track through the glen for the long tiring walk back to Chisholme Bridge. An epic mountain day.

Revisit. Tidying up some final Munros, couldn't resist revisiting some old friends on such a beautiful day.

Fourth highest of all OSGB36 trig pillars. Parking at NH216242 and NH200233 depending on choice of route through hills. Followed mapped track west to NH148228 then NW to about NH125248 where the path fades away. Climbed the side of the steep gully to the north and onto the ridge for Mam Sodhail. Final 1km NE is all on the ridge, returned via same route. Primary station pillar in good condition. Completed 1st August 1945 costing 42.12s.6d. Spider centre open and filled with debris. Flush bracket faces 160 (SSE) Vented through NW sight hole. 360 panorama from top.

Carn Eighe was the third Munro of a 6-Munro day from Alltbeithe YH but the only one with a trig point. My walking diary records the time we reached each summit but not the state of the pillar.

With Beinn Fhionnlaidh the next objective, was beginning to think I should have started this Affric round of 5 Munros plus 10 Munro Tops a bit earlier... (back to car at 22:15 in the dark).

White painted back then... Backpacking into Affric via munros. Check out the remains of the old bothy on the neighbouring top, Mam Sodhail. There used to be a man living in there to keep the likes of us out! Carn Eige is the highest point of the near island that is "north of the Great Glen" A very prominant peak.
