Short but steep walk up to this one. Windy but sunny so no midgies today.

The aim is to find 25 trigpoints in one day - this is the first of the 'day'. Many more to come. Easy walk up just followed the arrow on my GPS. There was just enough twilight to see that there was quite a drop off to the east.

Very short walk into this trig which can see just after joining the minor road signposted to Brother Point after parking in layby just north of Glenview Hotel. Trig in good condition, shame about the plastic plug, however the views are outstanding over the west coast mainland of Scotland, Brothers Point, Raasay, Rona, the Storr etc. The real jewel in the crown of this trig is the walk onto Rubha nam Brathairean (Brothers' Point). The path climbs very steeply over Dun Hasan, the site of an Iron Age fort and gives superb sea views and the idea of isolation. Peace perfect peace and a mile of miles away from my day job!

Easy bag on the way home. Parked in car park on main road, then a short walk down the brothers' path before cutting up the hill to the trig. Fantastic views!

Layby parking on west side road a little south of a gated entrance to dwelling(s) not on my OS 1:25k map. Over gate, then over stock fence into a pasture, short walk SE to trig on small rocky outcrop. Only 2 passive stations on Skye, this and the Grunagary bolt. Pillar found in reasonable condition but with horizontal crack extending across the LHD side. Cap missing, composite plug; rear sight hole open; off-set spider. Extensive views along coastline to the Storr, inland to the Quiraing and across to Raasay.

Log #139. Hadn't planned to do this one, but spotted it on the radar on my way to Staffin. I parked just off the road, in the entrance to the gated track just west of the pillar. From there, over one barbed wire fence - it's quite slack, so a pain in the bum (literally) to climb - then in the southeastern corner of the field, you'll see a gate. Climb over that, then you are at the pillar. Be careful, as it is very close to the edge of the cliff. Passive plaque is present but unfortunately the plug has been replaced with a plastic disc. The pillar is otherwise in good condition. [ExP-126/MiP-2/Rev-1/BM-9/Other-1]

A selfie at the trig I was on the Isle of Skye walking the Cullin Ridge and as i was driving i spotted this one so had a quick walk to bag this one.

Very easy to get to. There is a car parkon main road and then a short walk. Also there is a board telling about a brotherhood of monks who lived in a settlement down on the shore. The weather today is very foggy and so the view was not good.

Lovely views from the trig. Walked from teh signpost on road for the brothers walk and then cut up hill to trig. Took easier route back down to track at house then onto road again.

Walked down lane, through gate and straight up to it. Short hard climb but worth it for the views.

One of the easiest trigs that we'll do - especially when we were on holiday in the cottage just below the trig! Great views on the day out to Raasay and Rona and the Applecross Hills on the mainland.
