Pillar in really good condition with relatively new coat of white paint and retaining its cap. The pillar is at the side of the road and there’s a few lay-bys and nearby car parks. Nice views of the rigs towards Invergordon.

Not much of a climb needed here! Easy roadside 'bag' to north of the B9163 near some houses. All fixings in place and pillar up on its plinth sporting a reasonable amount of white paint. All in good order. Pleasant views over the Cromarty Firth.

Came across this one by chance after taking the ferry across from Nigg on a whim (having seen the sign for it driving North on the A9 a few days earlier). Had to stop and reverse back along the road to get photos much to the amusement of the man cutting his lawn in the house opposite!

Easy spot at roadside. Didn't linger long as I was parked up on the road but trig looks to be in good condition.

Have passed this trig many times heading into Cromarty. It has such an excellent view down the Firth to the town and up the Firth to the rigs and mountains.

On a cycle ride from Rosemarkie round by Cromarty and picked up some roadside trigs on the way. Somebody has been busy with the whitewash.

Log #1. Passed trig points loads of times while doing navigational road rallies, but I suppose this is my first official trig log. I took a sporadic drive around the Black Isle, but didn't think to dig out the other local ones. EDIT, 02/08/14 - Came back to it tonight, got a picture this time. [ExP-1/MiP-0/BM-0]

What a lovely trig. lovely houses along here too, so jealous, I'd love to live on the seafront and maybe when I win the lottery my dream will come true and maybe I'll have my own trig in the garden!

The 4th trig point on our Black Isle mini-tour of trigs whilst en-route from Tongue to Aviemore. Located on a small mound at the roadside, very visible and easy to spot. Good views into Cromarty Firth.

Lowest one I have visited, on the roadside beside the Cromarty Firth, and as accessable as possible. Newly painted, including all the metal work.
