Glorious spot and one of the best views of the holiday. Trig itself easy to get to from the minor road crossing the peninsula. Superb looming views of the mountains with the small isles resplendent under blue skies. Over to the little Marilyn of Ben Meabost next for even more sublime views and feelings.

Located east of Elgol on a mound 120m from the minor road that runs to Glasnakille. Good views here into the heart of the Cuillin mountains. Pillar, a standard truncated square pyramid, is in good condition.

Lovely white-painted pillar, found after a visit to Elgol, a marvellously isolated spot with a school on the beach! How cool is that! Pillar easy access just off mountain road. No plug and sightholes closed. Concrete base exposed about 2" all round. Wonderful views over the Cuillens and coastal Skye. Great spot!
