From W. Half inch pipe cemented in place flush with flat outcrop W side of cairn. Appears neatly cut off rather than broken or rusted. Appears to be an intact Iron Pipe marker - same as Octofad. Newer angle iron adjacent presumably not trig related.

Plenty time for a look as the group sampling the delights of Ardbeg. Went thru the same whole process as jonglew (really should read up on logs...). Excavated to base, backfilled and only then spotted a pipe of sorts in the surrounding rock, just on the West (Lagavullin) side. It's a bit dubious, but I'll take it until proven otherwise!

Parked roadside on A846, over stone wall, across field and rough ground to gain summit of small rocky top of Meall Ard 400m distant. Dismantled small summit cairn at given GR, found a square-profile, rock-and-soil filled hole beneath it. Excavated to solid rock approx 70cm down - signs of a cement lining, its purpose I know not. No pipe-like feature found, back-filled it. Then noticed what appeared to be end of small, rusted pipe, approx 1.5cm diameter flush with flat rock and cemented in place. An elusive pipe? Who knows, but without contrary evidence am assuming it is.

An enjoyable wee saunter up while awaiting a tour at Ardbeg, which this promentary overlooks. Some very curious cows tracked me along the field edge.
