Between Goatfell and North Goatfell there are 4 rocky bosses - there is a bypass path on the east side of the ridge (if you're walking the whole ridge - spectacular! but some tricky moves - thanks to Jon Glew for the help)

Took the short route up from Corrie, crossed the ridge to North Goat Fell and returned down the Coire Lan path. Rain turned to sleet, to hail, to snow. Wind blowing hard, gusting on the way up then consistently high whilst we crossed the ridge which made negotiating the rock castles interesting. Pillar is in very good condition sitting on a large horizontal rock platform and accommpanied by a toposcope. Could do with a coat of fresh paint but otherwise fine. Cap missing, plug looks like cement but may be asphalt. Views were disappointing as only intermitant and then never more than to the other Corbets, but still worth a 7. ***Re-visited with Carole Engel on a traverse of the ridge from N Sannox CP to Merkland Bridge - Witches Step, 3 Corbetts, 2 pillars; lovely bright day with views.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 30th September 1936 costing £70.12s.11d. In 1951 this marker was computed for triangulation as primary station PP309 in Figure 6 of the OSGB primary network. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1956. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in October 1978. SITE VISIT: Up the well trodden waymarked path from the south east. The trig pillar is built on solid rock. Column in good condition. Spider centre plugged with tar. Flush bracket faces SE (138°). All sight holes open. Potential for very long views in all directions when there is no haze.

I arrived on Arran after taking the 12:30 sailing from Ardrossan. I hesitated little in finding the start of the Goatfell Track, which began my long ascent through the conifer plantation. I somehow managed to time my summiting to coincide with a heavy bank of cloud which reduced the visibility to a few hundred metres. Every now and then the dramatic ridge to North Goatfell poked out below the white, which made for an interesting five minutes up on the top. Unfortunately I couldn’t go down on a different path because I had to collect my rucksack from where I left it in the forest. A long walk in bright moonlight then took me to my campsite at North Sannox.

Goat Fell just falls short of being classified as a Munro. The tallest mountain on Arran with a number of routes to the top. Two hours for a average fit person. Views are beautiful as you look over Brodick, Lamlash, and the Holy Island (Mulloch Mor trig)

Goat Fell, Isle of Arran, Scotland Goat Fell is classified as a Corbett at 876 metres high. It is the highest mountain in Arran. It is also the historical scene of a murder that caused national controversy in July 1889 when John Laurie was convicted of killing Edwin Rose
