Good off-road parking at NR 8676 7013. Followed a very faint and very poor track WSW up through clear fell forest to edge of old forest then almost due S, maybe a little W, to trig over slightly better ground. Extensive views to Loch Fyne and West Loch Tarbert. Pillar retains an original top cap, raised lettering; LHS sight hole open. Small memorial plaque on rear face close to the ground - Iain AS Kelly, died 25/7/99 aged 21.

Parked at water treatment plant to North of Tarbert then up through rapidly disappaering woods then beeline to pillar on indistinct tracks...Excellent views of Tarbert although you have to walk a small way East of the pillar...
