Trig symbol on Explorer map. We called in on the way back from Ronay - Wiay - Groay and scoured the summit area for a Bolt, without success, and concluded that the tall cairn itself - probably an old navigation aid - was used by the OS to sight to rather than from. The OS online trig archive does indeed list the Cairn, as a 4th order trig. Fine rock and grass summit; great location and view. We chartered Roddy Beaton ( and had an enjoyable and very productive day even though the sea was rather bumpy! My GPSr recorded a location some way SE of the co-ords in the OS archive, as with Renish Point and Greaval.
