Parked in the parking area by the beach, walked back east along the road to the gate into the field, then walked up onto the ridge. Great views - my first of hopefully many Islay Trigs.

First of my Islay Trigs 2022. Stopped on way to Bruichladdich distillery. Parked at car park on side of road by beach, then through the sheep field and up the path to the trig on the rampart. Trig in excellent condition. No damage and all parts intact. Views out to Bowmore and Port Charlotte over the Loch.

With Clochandighter. Approached from junction of roads to southwest. The minor road is shown in yellow on some maps but had been degraded to a gated track. Followed said track to where an obvious path to the right climbs eastwards along the ridge of the escarpment. This is a direct route but be mindful of the overhanging turf above the quarried edges.

My sixth Islay trig. Wonder if I'll ever come back to get some more.....? I'd like to but there are so many lovely looking islands to explore. Stopped at Bowmore's Whisky shop on the way to the ferry wistfully hoping to find an affordable bottle of Port Ellen. Cheapest was £675. The bottle I bought 20 years ago for £99 was on the shelf at £3750!!

Good condition pillar atop small hill line at the head of Loch Indaal. Parked on beach and walked up track then up to the trig. Easy access. FB faces N-ish with W-ish sighthole open only. Cap present with raised lettering. Excellent views down the loch.

First trigpoint and activated an amateur radio station as MM0NRD/P for the Worked all Britain scheme. Simple walk up farm track from road then up path to top of ridge. Might be low in height but great view down the loch.

Looking across to Bowmore

Parked on grassy coastal strip (NR 28475 63317) opposite farm access track for short walk to this trig. What it lacks in height it makes up for in imposing position it commands near head of Loch Indaal. Pillar in good condition; original cap in place, raised lettering; 1 sight hole open. 360deg views, particularly fine over townships on either side Loch Indaal.

I began the morning at An Cladach bothy and visited this trig pillar on my way to Port Charlotte youth hostel. I climbed over the first gate and walked the full length of the little ridge, passing over a couple more gates on my way. The trig was an interesting interlude in a long day road walking, but really couldn’t warrant a better score due to its lowly stature. Also, the S9000 was still to elude me...

Perched on a ridge along the A847 with stunning views along Loch Indaal. A regular perch for a falcon of some sort, I could not identify from the road.

Not the highest TP in the world, but it felt like it at the time! Blowing a gale! Visited after taking photos of sea fury at Port Wemyss. Most seen Islay trig! Drive past this trig on way to work.

Access was a two-minute walk across from the road and then a short climb up onto the ridge. Blowing a hoolie up there at the time!

Irresistable, up a long grassy ridge overlooking the duck soup that is Loch Indaal. Halfway between Bruachladdich and Bowmore. Heaven!
