A rather non-descript hill but I wanted to bag this trig on my last stretch of Islay's coastline - from Glen Astle to Kintra. Very boggy and added an hour and a half to my walk, but was worth it. Several Red Deer does greeted me at the trig and I descended to the lochs to the rare sound and even rarer sight of Grasshopper Warbler. Later on at Glen Astle my best ever views of Golden Eagle. 12 out of 10 for my overall walk but trig itself deserves lower rating. Recommend this long walk though (cars needed both ends)

vgc, metal cap, wide raised letters, heather summit, OK view. 166m summit just to W is a Yeaman. Relative dullness of hill made up for by a pair of Chough seen on way out.
