Parked at the car park for walking up to Strathy Point. Headed west over heather with some mildly boggy sections. Pillar in fine order with asphalt plug. Good views on a reasonably clear, though windy, day.

Altitude 92m parked at NC 82710 68589 and followed a path parallel to the fenceline about 50m south of it to the corner of the fence just S of the pillar. Cracking views.

Took the track to the left and parked at the "Get to the (Strathy) Point" cache parking coords. Yomped over the peat bogs to a gate into the trig field.

Parked at the closest geocache and walked across the heather and peat bogs. Nice and dry but some bog jumping was needed. Then up to the fence and over it to the trig. nice panoramic spot.

Great views from the trig, but you have to negoiate a wire fence to get to it.

Parked outside the gate of the B&B just south of the pillar - much easier approach than from the east, if slightly longer. Although lots of rain recently there is still enough dry sections to reach summit without getting wet feet. A very very large fence post, looks like a Venessa tube from a distance, but pillar is on other side of fence on heathery hummock. Good condition, plug filled, good sea views

vgc, asphalt plug. Heathery summit: obvious beeline from S a bit of an obstacle course with many little peaty pools. Fine view.

Sutherland. It was a very windy day for my visit. There is a concrete plug.

This is a lovely trig point on a nice piece of moorland, with good views out towards the sea if you stand on the pillar. The base is slightly undermined.
