Please someone give it a paint, easy bag - so what if we get a few car horns - maybe an attempt to remind us there is a castle nearby or it could be the guest appearance of our car furniture...last one in the Highlands for now. A slightly unglamorous 400th trig point but a vanesta so that's ok!

Log #140. Parked at the hall, then walked along the road to the pillar. I wasn't expecting it to be so close! Freshly cut grass set my hayfever off, but it was only a small annoyance. The raised cap is still intact, which is really surprising considering its location. Overall good condition, offering a decent view of the surrounding hills and Eilean Donan castle.

Great views of the castle from here, can't believe we've passed this trig so many times and not noticed it. Mr TJR said it was a Vanessa on steroids.

Last maintained by the OS in June 1978. SITE VISIT: Large public car park at NG879263, off SW side of A87, entrance just SE of trig. Pillar stands on open mowed grassland by SW footpath. Vanessa in good condition. Spider retains original OS centre cap with raised large narrow letters. Flush bracket faces east, ~84. Sight holes buried by raised ground level. Open mainly upward panorama runs from WNW through north, east and south to SW. Remember to visit nearby levelling flush bracket G1750 before departing.
