Parked at the RSPB car park and walked the boardwalks and boggy track to the American monument. Terrific views all round.

Good condition pillar near cliff edges. FB faces N-ish with E-ish sighthole open only. Cap present with raised lettering. Incredible 360 views. Northern Ireland clearly visible. Walked up from the RSBP parking to the NE. Reasonable underfoot with duckboards helpfully covering the worst sections.

Very windy on the day of the visit but amazing location with the monument a poignant reminder of the tragic loss of life. Approach from the RSPB carpark was boggy due to recent weather, thankfully duckboards covered the worst

Short walk across boggy ground from RSPB car park. Some boarded walkways installed at worst sections so not too bad. Trig dwarfed by nearby American Monument (intersected station). Pillar in good condition (not sure why some loggers have deemed it slightly damaged). Original cap in place, raised lettering; 1 sight hole open. Extensive 360deg views, including across North Channel to Ireland.

A special place on a lovely evening before bagging the nearby Marilyn Bheinn Mhor and rushing back for half a duck, roast potatoes and leaks for tea, brill.

Only SouthEast sight open. Neat walkway halfway over the peaty bog... misty, windy and rainy... not the best conditions to be sauntering a cliffedge at twilight! :-O

Mull of Oa ..not the best weather nor timing!

Right on the Mull of Oa after a circular walk around the RSPB's Oa reserve, with great views of seals and wild goats on the rocks below the path, choughs on fenchposts and plenty of livestock! Stunning views across to Ireland on a clear day, too.

Very boggy circular walk to large American memorial to those lost in two troop ship sinkings in WW1. Pillar seems to have been battered by wind and rain and so were we. Sheltered behind the Memorial for 20 mins and wind was so strong that we were dry at that point. On top of stunning cliffs with crashing waves below - well worth the wet and windy walk

What a day! As the photograph shows, visibility was very poor. Had hoped to see Choughs and maybe even a Golden Eagle, but had difficulty seeing anything. It appeared to be in good condition, but as it started to rain hard as we arrived, did'nt stay too long.

An easy, short walk to monument with amazing views across to Northern Ireland. Have been several times. Last visit was nearly knocked off my feet by enormous wolfhound!

came here after a tasty tour of the Ardbeg Distillery with lots of sampling--we had won this in a TGO Competition--so my memory is not so good
