Last maintained by the OS in July 1980. SITE VISIT: Approached from south, boat moored by rocks at NR637093. Scrambled along rocks along peninsula to worn grass path which leads to the trig. Vanessa in good condition. Spider retains OS centre cap with raised large narrow letters. Flush bracket faces NNW, compass measurement 344. Vented through back (SE) sight hole. Potential view to neighbouring islands lost to fog on day of visit. Part of a multi island tour from Craobh Haven.

Dropped by boat below the chapel then up to Eileach an Naoimh, the Vanessa trig plus TUMP top of Eileach an Naoimh SW Top below just having time to visit the lighthouse.

Raised lettered cap covered in bird doodoo with North and South sights open on this fab Vanessa. Made very tough work of reaching the island summit - totally missed the worn path up - Doh! Bit of a cloudy start but cheered up with a muse around the Monastery.

Eileach An Naoimh ..ahh, Vanessa! :-)

Fantastic location on wonderful island. First of 5 islands bagged on day out from Craobh Haven with Duncan the boatman from Farsuin Cruises. Assortment of trig and island baggers including Ed and Alex. Monastery was a bonus but even more interesting than the trigpoint!

What a location for my first Vanessa! By boat from Craobh Haven with several other island and trig baggers. Our aim was to visit five islands in one day. We were landed on the rocks of Eileach An Naoimh and walked up past the monastery by different routes eventually converging on the pillar. FB faces NNW; SSE sighthole open, others plugged. Original top with raised letters covered in congealed fishy bird droppings!

First island of five in a day excursion with a boatful of hill and trig baggers. We had a look around the remains of the monastery, and then all converged upon the trig pillar. It was a grey and murky start to the day, with poor visibility, but nonetheless I have to give this a high score just for the inaccessibility and the craic with the other guys.

Good condition Vanessa pillar on the highest point of Eileach an Naoimh. Cap present with raised lettering. FB faces north-ish with both sightholes open but blocked internally. Absolutely superb day out to the Garvellachs, Lunga and Eilean Dubh Mor thanks to Duncan Phillips. Excellent visibility in all directions with the expected huge views. Simply stunning! The Historic Scotland monastery is also fascinating and has been on my wishlist for a good many years, so doubly excellent!

Cylindrical trig, vgc, metal cap, wide raised letters, fine grass & rock summit; hazy view. 10 of us (+ dog!) on a trip with Duncan Phillips; landed at NM642097 (on rock) - potentially awkward due to very low tide but we were lucky and had quite an easy landing. Gorgeous island - very green; interesting rock; well-presented monastery remains & big beehive cairn, also an odd standing stone. Rescued an embrambled sheep. Also visited Scarba.

Visited in a company of eminent baggers from a boat out of Craobh Haven. Beautiful little grassy island with grazing sheep and ruined monastery. Pillar in excellent condition despite its exposed position presiding over wonderful views of sea and islands.
