Took red route from main car park, climbs up through forest to only drop down again! At the gate took the steep climb through heather along fence out of forest, Great views at top, and in excellent painted condition.

Lovely forest walk in the sunshine from the Kings Cave car park, took a left along the red route to the gate and then up the steep slippy bank to the lovely white trigpoint which was shining out in the sunshine. Fantastic wee hill with wonderful coastal views.

Beautifully maintained. I took the line up the fence as this time of year it's clear. Recently painted bright white with black painted fb we saw this trig glinting in the sun from an adjacent hill 2 days previously. Also bagged the nearby geocache as a double whammy.

The trig in good order.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 24th February 1956 costing 30.9s.6d (30.48). Computed as secondary triangulation station NS04/18 within the Isle of Arran block during 1956. Levelled for height also in 1956. Last maintained by the OS in October 1978. SITE VISIT: Forest car park provided just off west side of public road at NR896314. A waymarked footpath heads southwest through the woods and emerges onto open moor at NR886310. From there it is a direct easterly climb to the top. White painted pillar in good condition. Spider retains OS centre cap with raised large narrow letters. Flush bracket faces ease, ~95. Vented through south sight hole. 180 panoramic view centred on south, northerly aspect blocked by adjacent woods.

Took the left hand path to caves from car park. As I exited forest, followed fence line uphill and straight to trig.

Approached this from forest in the west. Walk up from directly south too tricky due to neck high ferns so walked up through forest and hopped over fence. Descended through fern forest which was fine if not hard work as they really are densely packed. Unlike the other trigs I've so far found on Arran this week, this one hasn't been painted in the last few weeks and therefore paint is flaking (this is fine) and flush bracket vaguely readable.

Good parking 4km north of Blackwaterfoot, primarily to serve the Kings Caves visitors. Path from the car park descends through the forest. Where it exits to continue over open ground to the caves the trig can be gained by turning east and climbing the short, but steep, hill along the forest edge. Good views across to the Kintyre peninsular. Pillar sports a fresh coat of white paint; has 1 sight hole open; original cap in place. Worth continuing on the path down the cliff to visit the caves.

Easy now that there is a new path to the King's Cave. Around the high point of the path it is easy to get through the Sitka to the moor. Horrid wet day. Beat the painter!

There are 17 pillar trigs on Arran. To get to this trig it is best to park your car in the Kings caves forestry carpark and take the path to the left and keep going untill you reach a large pond on your right, you can take a short cut through the trees to your left which will take you straight to the trig after you climb over a low barbewire fence. If you dont want to risk the shortcut you are better to carry along the path untill you get to a gate and then turn left following the treeline to the top. Good views.

vgc, metal cap, wide raised letters. In heather just S of plantation. From NE, car park then clockwise path, then thought Id be clever and take a shortcut thru plantation but a bit too dense for comfort, barely quicker. Descended W and followed path back out.

Clockwise around the path in the forest, with a short but hard climb through deep heather to the trig. On to Kings Caves and good coastal views

A path leads up from Kings cave on the beach, heading north to a kissing gate into the wood (not on my OS landranger nor explorer maps. It's then a hard trudge straight up (an Arran trudge). For the lowest trig on the island at 137m, it's hard! Good views to the Doon nearby and across the water to Davaar

Beautiful location which is most easily reached by clambering up the heathery slope from the new footpath to the King's Cave as it comes out of the forest through a gate. Extensive views across to Kintyre. Trig is in excellent condition with the brass plug still in place.
