HISTORY: Pillar completed 14th June 1948 costing £19.11s.0d. Computed as primary triangulation station PP380 within Figure 6 of the OSGB36 primary retirangulation network during 1951. Levelled for height in 1956. Last maintained by the OS in May 1980. SITE VISIT: Approached from southeast. Small car park on south side of unclassified road at NH395406 where the mapped yellow infill now ends. Headed due north as mapped but the path does not become apparent for around 250m. Continued on path passing around east side of Loch na Beiste and up onto top on Carn na Gabhalach, along to Sgurr a' Phollain and finally Beinn a' Bhathaich Ard. Stone built pillar in good condition. Spider plugged with tar. Flush bracket faces SSE, ~159°. Vented through NE and NW sight holes. Full 360° panorama with long views in all directions. Returned via a random route south picking up the mapped track just west of the power station.

vgc, stonebuilt, asphalt plug, in shelter cairn. Fine steep hill, cloaked in nice firm snow. With Mark Smith. From SE, car park at Inchmore (farm), path a bit vague at start but goes from gate opposite car park. Visited the 2 Graham Tops (Ghlaisein and its neighbour) on the way up. Thick mist above 800m - no view.

Tough walk up from forest as was a hot one! Headed straight up north west of Struy. Fantastic views all around a pitty as was very hazy so not the best day. Trig seems intact. All good.

Walk up from locked gate. Whilst on summit spotted motorbikes to the west, were they lost!

Excellent trig with small wall of piled stones around. Began walk from Inchmore to the most easterly peak, then across SW to Beinn A' Bha'Ach Ard. Stunning views all round, especially to East. Then on and down into Glen Strathfarra to return to starting point.

Deep heather on way up. Deer ahead of us. Torrential rain / hail shower. Arran (dog) took shelter under my anorak as I leant into the hill to protect her from the sting of the hailstones. Rustic column (not concrete). Gloomy views. My 50th Corbett.
