Trig itself has great views and a nice bench added around it. The walk however was extremely boggy and lots of new paths have been created since os mapping. Id recommend coming back down the same way you went up to save the hassle!

Lovely walk up following the signposted path which finishes on the heather clad summit. The trig was gleaming white along with it's attendant seat. Expansive views all round. With Nozzer.

Lovely walk up to this on good forestry tracks, only the last section is steep in places. Fantastic view from the top and even a wee seat around the trig.

Log #106. Untracked route from Loch nam Bonnach, wasn't too bad. Pillar looks to have had a recent coat of whitewash, and as others have mentioned, has a wooden seat built around it. Great views in all directions - Glen Orrin and Glencarron to the west; the Fannichs to the north-west; Wyvis to the north; the Cromarty Firth and Black Isle to the north-east; Beauly Firth and Inverness to the east; the Aird, Boblainy, Cannich, Struy to the south. Great views, little fuss. Walked back to car via the new access roads for the pylons. [ExP-96/MiP-2/BM-8]

Cap missing, round stone plug.
Pillar, plus bench.
View to the west.
View to the north.

First trigpoint I can log since beginning Geocaching. Good path led to boggy moderate slog then a good view.

I did this one sometime in spring 2013 on a lovely sunny evening afterwork. Lovely walk but surprised when I got to the top and there were two people sitting there. I've never seen a wee seat around a trig before. Great views as well as a Geocache.

vgc, metal cap, wide raised letters; wooden seat fixed around trig, well above FB level. Good signposted path to summit; great view, early morning. The obvious 2-trig circuit from NH503483. Scattered pines between held several Redstarts, my first of the year.

An absolutely excellent view over the Beauly Firth and Cromarty Firth. Can see for miles all around even at 319m. Lovely walk up the path to Trig.

Stunning views all around. Landranger has this hill covered in pine forest, but it's completely open moorland. Well worth the slog and extremely wet boots!

100m across heather from nearest path. Views in all directions, including the Beauly Firth, the Cromarty Firth and towards Contin. Trig is in very good condition, recently painted, and it has a seat around it.
