Final pilar on Islay and surrounding islands. Parked at Kildalton Church ruins. Walked to last cattle grid before the house then a left turn and down to the beach. Lovely area. Pillar sits ~0.5m from the summit of the hill. Original centre cap retained, raised lettering; RHD side sight hole open.Extensive panoramic views.

Revisit. Similar route to last year but due to high tide the coastal route was not possibe. The diversion took a route around the big house, and down through some well maintained grounds. Many high gates to negotiate but they were all openable.

3rd of the 8 I have left on Islay! Parked at church and took estate track all the way to Ardmore House, it was late and I was tired so ended up going quite close to the house and ended up in the very well manicured garden which eventually lead down to the beach. From here I headed up towards the headland that the trig sits on. Stunning views. Headed back via beach and gate and path at NR 46768 50795 which avoids the house completely, you might struggle to do this at high tide.

Approached from the west. Easy public parking beside the ruined Kildalton Church. The easiest route is via the mapped drive to Ardmore House, cutting down to the sea just short of the house. The route then follows the coastline until the climb of Ardmore Point itself. The trig is then within easy reach. Pillar in good condition. Spider retains original centre cap with large narrow raised letters. Flush bracket faces southwest, compass measurement 209. Pillar vented through right sight hole. 360 panoramic view incomplete due to sea haar.

Third Islay Trig 2022. On walk from Kildalton cross. Followed track to the cove and then around the headland to Ardmore Point as tide out. Sat on a rocky outcrop overlooking the cove with the mountain range behind. Stunning location. Trig in excellent condition, all parts intact and freshly painted white.

Nice to see such a looked after trig, recently painted. Stunning views down the Sound. All the better for comparing with the photo included in the Islay coast book bought for me - heartily recommend it!

Tired out after a walk to MacArthur's Head - but just had to be done, lured by the Celtic cross

From ruined church to west. Park at Private Road sign. (NR459509).Ahead at junction of track in wood to reach beach (NR 467508). Walk round coastline (OK when tide out) to avoid house gardens, some of which run down to the coast (amazing place to live)

Visited as part of my coastal walk round Islay. Seemed to take ages to get here, but beautiful location looking down towards Ardmore House and Bay and eastwards to the Paps of Jura.
