High point of Colonsay. Cairn + bedrock higher than trig on lovely sunny day via ferry from Islay. Calmac Wednesday crowds supplemented by island top bagging Marhoffers obsessing all the way to a major SIB apparently. Great views too, including the whale.

On a good day there would be fine views over Kiloran Bay. Quite an exposed trig, but an easy path to it and fabulous walk.

Highest point of Colonsay, a very rugged rock peak. Bit blowy on top but a great view on a clear day. Pilalr in very good condition. I believe it is one of the later ones.
