One of my favourite spots on a good weather day. One of the top corners of the trig point is slightly damaged.

Parked at NF 7155 2974, but could have driven out to the end of the track. The trig sits out on a small promontory poking out into the Atlantic Ocean, and does have a remote feel about it. The large stone obscuring the spider was unceremoniously removed revealing a missing centre cap, and the replacement mortar plug was also missing; LHS sight hole open. Views west to the New World - honest!

Drive to NF 715297. Sometimes on track, sometimes on smooth grass to left of track - good surface even when rest of island very wet underfoot

Log #513. Drove most of the way, which was a stupid idea in my too low ASBO-mobile. Good walk along the shore to trig and gun emplacement. Watched bonxies terrorise a crow for five minutes. Loads of cows, placid calves. [ExP-351/MiP-38/Rev-6/BM-39/IS-52/Other-27]

Wonderful location. Drove to the end of the track across the machir then short walk past the Dun. No seals but gannets, turnstone, dunlin, sanderling and a bonxie.

A windswept place at the end of a splendid beach and machir walk from Gearraidh Bhailteas. Lots of birdlife; great views (on a clear day!) Plug missing

Drove to sea front. Road not great. Walked round the peninsula being watched by the seals in the bay. Lots of them basking on the rocks. One of the nicest spots on the islands.

Clear and bright conditions. The wind behind me most of the time. Walking the shore and machair from Howmore to Daliburgh. Plug missing.

Fab spot with plenty of seals basking on the rocks. A ruined Dun and an old gun enplacement (I assume)

Used Trimble GeoXH with H-Star post-processing from Benbecula Base station. Transforming to the OS National Grid (OSTN02)coordinate zone gave me an identical match to the coords shown on your website. Exact coords were NF 70954.65 29942.61 Great site for sea-watching. Arctic skua flew part on the landward side of us.

vgc, broken resin cap, fine location & coast view. Driveable track most of way: sea has destroyed a section just before the end.

Drive up at the western extremity of South Uist. Car made a good hide for the birdlife spectacular here. Plug missing, else all OK.
