Detour required as didn't want to overly disturb the wee lambs and calves. Cracking day, verging on warm!

Good condition pillar atop small hill line at the head of Loch Indaal. Parked on beach and walked up track then up to the trig. Easy access. FB faces N-ish with W-ish sighthole open only. Cap present with raised lettering. Excellent views down the loch.

First trigpoint and activated an amateur radio station as MM0NRD/P for the Worked all Britain scheme. Simple walk up farm track from road then up path to top of ridge. Might be low in height but great view down the loch.

Easy trig to bag, on the way back from a trip to Spar! (and a fab walk at Sanaigmore)

Parked on grassy coastal strip (NR 28475 63317) opposite farm access track for short walk to this trig. What it lacks in height it makes up for in imposing position it commands near head of Loch Indaal. Pillar in good condition; original cap in place, raised lettering; 1 sight hole open. 360deg views, particularly fine over townships on either side Loch Indaal.

Great views for so little effort. Easy parking and straight up the side.

I began the morning at An Cladach bothy and visited this trig pillar on my way to Port Charlotte youth hostel. I climbed over the first gate and walked the full length of the little ridge, passing over a couple more gates on my way. The trig was an interesting interlude in a long day road walking, but really couldn’t warrant a better score due to its lowly stature. Also, the S9000 was still to elude me...

Perched on a ridge along the A847 with stunning views along Loch Indaal. A regular perch for a falcon of some sort, I could not identify from the road.

One of Islay's lowest trigpoints. Sunnier day than last visit.

Great views over to Bowmore, a steep ascent straight up the side avoiding the zig zag path

Not the highest TP in the world, but it felt like it at the time! Blowing a gale! Visited after taking photos of sea fury at Port Wemyss. Most seen Islay trig! Drive past this trig on way to work.

Access was a two-minute walk across from the road and then a short climb up onto the ridge. Blowing a hoolie up there at the time!

Irresistable, up a long grassy ridge overlooking the duck soup that is Loch Indaal. Halfway between Bruachladdich and Bowmore. Heaven!
