Parked at Highland Boath. Circular walk down the road and then up by Clunas Reservoir finishing back at Cose. Sparkling clear day with great views.

Decided to go for this one today. Took the bike and cycled in from the Boath end. The path leads through someone's property but I met the owner (and his barking dogs!) and he was happy for me to pass through. The path is easy to cycle and you are soon at the the top. I recommend sticking with the path for as long as possible and skirt the edge of the flat top rather than trying to straight line it to the pillar, as the terrain looks boggy. Dumped my bike by a pile of tree trunks and carried on on foot for the final 500 feet or so. Pillar is in great condition and stunning views all around on a clear day like today.

Drove to the reservoir and then walked up the track. Then left the track when I spotted the flagpole and then spotted the trig. Breezy up here today. Dog was freaking out with the wind then ran off with the geocache. Looks like a lovely spot to visit in summer.

Walked up from Clunas Reservoir ignoring the fact my Mum had said she saw a sign saying shooting range, do not enter when the red flag is flying and there was a flag. Shots however sounded as if they were coming from the direction of the A96 and when we got to the top the flag pole did not have a red flag flying. On the way back a Cawdor Estates landy took the flag down and gave my Mum a cheery wave. Trig in good condition.

Log #62. As per Graeme and Peter, I parked in the pit by the entrance. Gate was not locked, and there was no-one about at Cose Byre. I followed their route to the pillar, which is in good condition and offers good views of the Ross-shire hills and towards Nigg and Cromarty. Decided to take Spidym's more direct (but squelchier) route back towards the loch. [ExP-60/MiP-0/BM-2]

View NW, towards Ross & Cromarty.

I parked at the location used by Clochandighter and basically followed his footsteps all the way to the pillar. It is in good condition although the plug has been removed and never replaced leaving the top open to the elements. A lovely view point.

Overall approach from ESE. Parked in disused pit by track entrance at NH887446. Followed mapped track network via Cose Byre to the `Danger Live Shooting` notice 150m west of trig. Quick yomp across heather clad grouse moor. Pillar in good condition. Spider centre open. Flush bracket faces NNE, compass reading 23. Vented through SE sight hole. 360 open outlook includes many of the Sutherland tops.
