Drove dirt road to HP 6112 0192 where discretion became the better part of valour and decided parking was the best option. Reasonably good track for a while before making a direct line to the hill top. 1" bolt on flat rock, close to hill summit.

Took about 25 mins to walk out the track to this trig. Very breezy on the top, with the remains of an old World War 1 radio station nearby. I walked back down to the old ruined chapel and viking ruins before going along the beach back to my motorbike.

No pillar but bolt found in the centre of a circular group of stones. Difficult to give a realistic score because of the misty weather, certainly worth more than 5 on a good day.
