On round of Coire Lair hills. There is a large cairn at NG 96661 49097. This marks the start of a rough path firstly up scree, then steeply up a vegetated climb, after which easily onto the top. Great care needed when navigating in the clag. There are a few lumps of trig concrete (that around the centre hole). They had been removed out of the shelter so I put them back in situ - doubt they will remain there sadly.

Superb. Another swelteringly hot day. The bolt is still fine - it is covered by some of the wood from the trig innards, which can be taken out and then replaced. I didn't see the spider, but I didn't really look. I didn't hang around, as the clegs were bad.

Bolt Bolt and wooden protection.

Remains of trig in summit shelter. High score for the hill as it's an absolute cracker.

Completely dismantled: remains of stone built pillar in summit shelter cairn. Top part retains spider. No sign of FB. Base remains with centre hole: vanessa-type bolt still present. Grey day but high cloud and good views. Path from Achnashellach station round to north side of hill then straight up, loose and stony near top. Then on to visit some tops of Sgorr Ruadh and Beinn Liath Mhor.

Missed logging in situ. Buried in snow.

Stump only remaining of stone-built trig inside the shelter cairn and the top part complete with spider minus cap lying near-by. Looks like this destruction has had a helping hand ! Great hill though.

Done in winter conditions, but unfortunately it looks like this trig is now damaged. It certainly is not the height shown in Fester's photo. With lots of snow in the cairn it was difficult to decipher how much of the trig remained so I will call it damaged as it was less than half the height of the photo, and I reckon the rock from the broken trig has been put on the cairn.

No photos remain of my walk to the summit of Fuar Tholl. I have no memory of the TP but the mountain was excellent.

Great hill... a wee gem.

This, with neighbouring Sgorr Ruadh, was my first ever Munro, Corbett, Marilyn and trig on 13 September 1952. Being young and foolish then, I don't remember much about the trig and had to revisit 48 years later.

An awsome ascent in variable cloud making the mountain even more impressive than it actually is

One of the best hills in Scotland... Torridonian scrambling everywhere. Stone built pillar visited twice now.. Must get back! Apparantly according to GRP on trigonomy mailing list, the flush bracket is a replacement, originally it was near Manchester!
