From the grass triangle parking spot. Pleasant walk to the trig along track with wide views. From the pillar I got my first ever glimpse of the Ulster hills just peeping over The Rhins of Galloway.

Great views of the Mull. Would have been 10 were it not for the hideous ariel thing next to the trig.
