Good view of the Sound of Mull. Rather windy so no cattle at the top. Easy approach from FC car park using gate a short way down the road towards Salen.

Bagged on drive back to Tobermory. Nice views over Sound of Mull but shame it was so cloudy. Really wet walk up from road. Parked at FC entrance and used gate on roadside. Iona waited in the car.

I parked in a pull-in at the high point of the main road - opposite and slightly SW of the Forestry Commission track entrance. I walked 30m to the gate and over it onto the hillside for a VERY wet and windy but mercifully short walk to the pillar. On a clear day the views would no doubt be excellent, but the drizzle severely limited what I could see today! FB faces W; top is missing plug/cap; S & E sightholes open, others plugged.

Took advice from previous visitors, parked across at the forestry commission track and walked down to the gate. No path up to the top but fairly easy going. Nice views on a lovely clear day.

Parked at the entrance to the cycle way and then foolishly tackled the barbed wire! So much easier on the way back when we went just a little way down hill to the gate. Pleasant on the top, but average views - for Mull.

Parked in the Eagle Watch entrance. Had to walk along the main road and then jump over a gate. Lots of orchids on the way up the hill.

Argyllshire. We walked up from the highest point of the road, which made a nice evening stroll before a delicious meal at the Italian restaurant in Salen. Plug missing.
