Good condition pillar atop a knoll. Parked at access road to Tallant Farm and headed directly to pillar across rough ground. Discovered on the way back down it's much easier to walk up to the farm then follow the path to the trig! Weather closed in upon summitting but good views across the island. FB faces north-west-ish with NE-ish and SE-ish sightholes open. Cap present with raised lettering. According to the BM lists there are also three rivets on the track between the trig and farm....

After lots of rain, and cattle turning the ground into soup, it was very difficult to get to the pillar.

North and South sights open allowing the curious sight of a branch running East-West ..obviously poked in just before those sights were sealed.Raised lettered cap and a very fresh looking FB face. Another good 360 but no lingering on this cow-ploughed field as the rain closed in.

Cnoc Donn ..cow-churned pasture.

Parked on access track to Tallant Farm (NR 341590). Short distance along track, then direct across moor - very rough

Walked up hill from farm after trekking through several boggy grid squares for 'geographing' project. Saw lizard, Roe Deer and Teal on walk. Good view from top.
