Parked near entrance to masts and had a very windy walk to the trig. Very misty so no views.

The view seemed better from the multi geocache I've just walked from.

Parked at the start of the farm drive to the E, then short climb to top then over bog to pillar, good condition, lovely location, views limited today due to weather conditions.

Parked at mast nearby and easy walk to the pillar. No views owing to weather and trees

Dervaig No great views, parked at the mast and easy walk to the trig pillar, which is in good condition

Bagged on drive back to Tobermory. Parked on road side and walked up the hill through bracken. Ground boggy. Nice views until a rain shower blew in and got me. Iona stayed in the car.

I parked carefully on the verge of the road at NM 4448 5208. Gusting winds and thick drizzle made the short walk up to the pillar a very wet experience! Pillar sits almost directly beneath power lines. FB faces ENE; ENE sighthole plugged, all others open; top has plug/cap missing.

Set off for Mingary Aird, brothers labrador chooses to chase a deer instead of walking with us and 3 hours search in the rain later, dog reappears but no trig bagged. Consolation of Dervaig and Mingary on list for next Mull visit.

Not many trigs easier than this one. Visited on the day after the Mull Rally when the cars were screaming past this very point at ridiculous speeds. Excellent fun. Good day for it. Views not as spectacular as you might expect but Rum clearly visible to the North.
