Parked in the car park and followed the path around to the trig. VERY wet and boggy in places.

PA Definitely exists. Flush bracket only the 1506 clear. It is surrounded on the seaward side by gorse and brambles. A second entry for this pillar suggests it is at Greenock which is across the Clyde and should be deleted.

Log #293. Enjoyable walk anti-clockwise from parking area. Detour on way back to visit the small cave marked on the 1:25k. Got a friendly warning on the way back to the car for walking along the 'private' road, so if going to the cave, make your way back to the path around the perimeter.

Well I am pleased to report that the gorse has gone (seen the previous photos) and there is now an excellent view from this particularly accessible trig. Cracking views with very clear air and snow capped hills on the day we visited. Rare visit for all the QBs!

Stumbled upon this one. Failed to notice it on local maps and so a pleasant surprise while out walking for the first time around Ardmore. None of the previously logged problems with gorse etc, Trig is now well exposed and easy to reach.

Anti clockwise would be much easier to find and as was said eariler, it is on the sea side of path not the land side as the map show. Circular path were soft and wet underfoot at parts :-)

Very good condition pillar just above sea level on the Ardmore peninsula. Easy to get at from nearby car parking with a lovely walk. Easy, until the last few metres, which are totally gorse-ridden. The trig is now completely enclosed except from a very narrow (and spiky) path to it. Managed to squeeze in (with swearing) to get an FB pic and establish the sightholes, but another year will probably have this pillar unreachable! FB faces north-ish, east-ish and west-ish sightholes are open. Cap is missing and the hole is unplugged. Lovely views away from the gorse!

The filled cap has been broken, removed and a little bit melted with the SouthEast and NorthWest sights open. The gorse engorgement continues apace, the white paint is cracking and flaking with moss creeping from below. Not much left of the Witches Warning. Very prickly getting in there today - wear something thick! :-)

Ardmore ..prickly. :-(

Beware that it is on the water side of the path unlike what is shown on the current explorer map! Only three years after the pillar was a brilliant white (see Rob's photo) it is well on its way back to plain old concrete. The gorse is also swallowing it up again and killing the immediate view. However this small headland is well worth walking around on a clear day though. Views across the water are tremendous and I spotted seals basking today. It might also be interestingly exposed in a winter storm!

I foolishly believed that just walking around the path I would be bound to see it. It must be behind/in gorse as I realised I must have gone past it. Will return with 10 digit grid ref.
