A short bogtrot up from the Millton road. Wall and fence on summit is low and you can step over to enjoy the ruin and view.

Parked by the harbour and crossed the fence by the two stiles. Followed the fenceline up. Almost missed the pillar as it was over the wall just north of the small broch! great views as usual. descended to the north and walked around the road to the car.

I'd forgotten this one existed. The second and final trigpoint for this visit. Beinn Hough awaits. An easy one to do - one of the advantages of Tiree being so flat!

My final pillar of Coll and Tiree. A crowd of locals gathered to see me log it (see pic).

Argyllshire. It is a short walk up the hill (Dun Mor a Chaolais) from the harbour (after which it gets its name?) There are remains of a broch on the top of the hill and therefore the white painted pillar stands just slightly away from the top. The views could be very good but it was grey today. Plug with raised lettering.
