HISTORY: Pillar completed 19th September 1957 costing Ģ68.7s.0d. Levelled for height to Class 1 precision tertiary standards during 1958. Computed as tertiary triangulation station NG24/T66 during 1959. Last maintained by the OS in April 1978. SITE VISIT: Approached from west. Parked in large layby, east side of A855 at NG491463. A gated track at the south end of the layby leads onto the open hill and it is a straight but tussocky pathless route to the top from there. The full name of this hill is Sėthean a' Bhealach Chumhaing. Pillar in good condition. Spider centre retains OS centre cap with raised large narrow letters. Flush bracket faces west, compass measurement 260°. Vented through right sight hole. Spectcular 360° panoramic view. A view to die for, literally. Just behind the pillar there is an unguarded drop of 1288ft into the sea.

From west, starting up the water board track for a short distance. Everything was bone dry after a prolonged dry spell, and so this route was fine. Superb view point. Cap intact.

Beautiful hill one of a number of Skye's cliff Marilyn's. Downpour coming in from the Outer Hebrides via gloomy Storr.

Spider has metal cap. Super cliff edge location. Excellent views of Raasay, Coulins, The Storr, etc. 10093 is prime!

The views towards Raasay and giving a different angled view of Ben Tianavaig are great - sadly the weather caught up with us so it wasn't as clear as we'd have liked to have made the most of them though.

Trig in vgc, great early morning walk from Toravaig. Straight forward route from houses following fence line then heading straight up to higher ground to avoid most of the boggy terrain. Re visit for pictures.

Loved the views, didn't so much like the fact that the track mentioned below didn't exist. 1.7km from lay by across grassy, boggy ground, just straight up, hard going after the previous 2 days walking but totally worth it for the views.

My first trig on an island since compiling my list of them all and an excellent one to get this trip underway with. Weather not so great though.

Sithean Bhealaich Chumhaing is proper name. Easy walk from road to the west as weather improved during afternoon.

vgc, metal cap, wide raised letters. Nice summit, great view. Just time for a quick visit before the Uig-Uist ferry. Track from W then simple climb.

A break in the rain tempted me to walk along the coast from Portree then back over the moorland to the campsite at Torvaig. Pleasant but tough underfoot and little to write home about in the lattter stages

No details noted - scrappy hill, pleasant ascent, fine summit perched above sea, in cloud
