Great Ganilly, Little Ganilly, Little Arthur, Great Arther, White Island, St Helen's, Great Hill (Tean) and finally Chapel Down (St Martin's) with Martin and his boat called Kestrel. Revisited the island later in the week by normal ferry.

On holiday in the IOS, couldn't let this one go. Long suffering husband didn't mind as the walk along the north coast from Lower Town is good.

The Trigpoint and the Day Mark Lovely Day - Fab Views. Gave this one a 10/10 even though the cap is missing

Pleasant walk on well-defined tracks over heather/gorse moorland from the Higher Town quay. On a prominent headland alongside the very visible red and white banded shipping day mark. Of the 21 trig stations on the Scillies, this is the only Hotine. Pillar found in good condition but with cap missing and no plug; rear sight hole open, RHD side plug degrading. Extensive views S, W & E; N obscured by the day mark, which has a cut benchmark to RHD side of bricked-up doorway.

Visited on a trip to St Martin's to walk round the coast. The trig point (the only classic pillar on Scilly) is located near to the great red and white day mark on St Martin's Head, surrounded by heather moorland. Very easy to find. The trig point is in reasonable condition, showing traces of white paint, but the cap is missing. A lable declares that the trig is part of the OS National GPS Network. The English coast is visible from the trig point on a good day, as far as St Michael's Mount. The walk along the north coast of St Martin's is the best in Scilly.

day trip from penzance for the ua/top on st mary's and would have been rude not to get the boat over to bag this as well, great views, plenty of people making the walk up straight from the boat and like me everybody got wet on the way.

Seems I'm following Simply PAul around: St Kilda, now this! vgc, no cap or plug, immediately S of lighthouse; fine view. Nice scenic island; standard return fare from St Marys is about 8; you could probably just about bag it via a cheap daytrip from Penzance on the Scillonian (35 I think). We were on Scilly for a long weekend, mainly botanising - there are some celebrated rarities; we found Orange Birdsfoot in several places on Martins. It was also Pilot-gig World Champs (rowing) that weekend, so a good atmosphere. Brilliant, 10/10.

Found while caching on the island in conjunction with my 'long way south' event. Surprised to discover it's never been a 'Ye Ole Survey Monument' trig but looked over and photographed anyway. Cracking spot 41km from the next trig, making it the UK's second most remote- I think. I visited the most remote the year before, on St Kilda. Great views to the Eastern Isles and the daymark. Cheers! SP
