vgc, plastic cap, GPS plaque. Cylindrical trig in circular shelter cairn. Flattish summit but great hill and ine views. Didnt fancy the E approach ... and anyway I wanted the 2 Graham Tops hence went from W, just SE of Inversnoaden. Forest road to NS127975 then straight up (felled, slightly brashy). Re-entered forest at 132983 (obvious gate); no problem crossing Coire Aodainnn burn. Nice circuit: recommended.

Cylindrical trig. Recent tree felling near Mullach a Chuirn, after that a superb walk past the aircraft wreck to west of Lochan nan Cnaimh.

Vanessa or cylindrical pillar. In good condition with fairly recent cosmetic repairs. Spider has JWR style grey plastic cap. Front sighting hole open, others buried by repaired ground. Flush bracket faces NW ~343. Unfortunately I do not have any historical gen on this TP. Flush bracket number implies that it was built in 1936. However, the cylindrical Vanessa design did not come until around 1958. This pillar must have been a standard Hotine pillar for over twenty years, then rebuilt to its present form. Primary station PP330. Long views in all directions. This primary station was used in the Retriangulation of Great Britain to observe other primary staiotns: Ben Lomond, Hill of Stake, Shiabh Goail, Carra Duagh, and Ben Cruachan. Parking at NN190004, no parking signs elsewhere around here. Did a clockwise loop. Ascended via mapped path with challenging burn crossing at NS166979. Descended to mapped path at Bealach an Lochain and headed east following the white marker posts. This route is now the Cowal Way. Note: from NS162997 to NN174002 the mapped path can no longer be retraced. Cross over to the south of the burn (no bridge) and follow the white posts which eventually bring you to a new network of unmapped forrest tracks leading back to those mapped at NN177000.

First vanessa. Great remote spot.

From Lettermay, the lower part being one of the most horrible approaches to a Corbett ever encountered; and the descent through the forest was no better. By contrast the upper third of the hill was quite pleasant. How anyone (Crwydryn) could do it eight times is beyond my imagination...
