Walked over from the viewpoint carpark, nice little hill, bit boggy in places, great views from the Vanessa, looking in good condition.

Simple walk from viewpoint car park, there and back <15 mins. Follow bouldered off quarry track then head slightly East to avoid big and up to the top. You can tell from the paintwork the direction of the prevailing weather. Shame about the rain when I visited, but it is Scotland!

Wanted to drive the road to Applecross so took the top road in and picked up this point. Traveled the lower road back recommended trip!

Log #135. There is a bouldered-off path to a small quarry directly opposite the parking area. Quick and easy trip from there, although if you take the direct route it is a little boggy. The vanessa pillar is in good condition, although the cap is missing. Really good views over towards the islands. [ExP-122/MiP-2/Rev-1/BM-9/Other-1]

Missing cap and view towards Cuillins.

Quick run up from the car park, gave a score of 8 as the view here should have been breathtaking however the rain and mist obscured most of this.

Unusually round pillar, similar to those seen near Dover which were erected for the building of the Channel Tunnel. I wonder if this pillar was built here when the coastal road to Applecross was completed in the late '60's? Anyway, the plug has gone. The W sighthole is open and the S sighthole partially open. White painted top. Concrete base at ground level all round. Wonderful views to Harris, Rona, Raasay, Skye and NW Highlands. Easy access from the car park - but beware after heavy rain!

The first round pillar that we've seen. Found whilst visiting the nearby geocache. Re-logging as originally found as Maxiboo22 but consolidating all finds under the one account.

Cylindrical pillar, no paint but good condition. Stumbled across this one while stopped at a viewpoint on the way to Applecross. Fantastic views across to Rona, Raasay and Skye.

This pillar is in a lovely position on a little hillock near the Applecross road. It is easilly accessible, and has good views out to sea towards the Western Isles.
