Slight deviation from West Island Way for this one. Views very limited due to rain but could see our next stop - The pub at Kingarth :)

Good condition pillar with some minor damage to the top on one corner. FB faces south-west-ish with the north-west-ish hole open only. Cap missing with an asphalt plug present. Extraordinarily spectacular views today! Very fine steep hill ascended from Kilchattan Bay. There's a timber garage with a motorhome on the Plan Road with hidden steps going between them. This path is a nice route up, brackeny but clear. Steep though!

I'm sure the views are good, but we didn't see them on this very overcast and wet day. Bute has quite a few trigpoints (8 I think) and I only managed one so will have to return.

Easy diversion from the West Island Way. A fine position even in overcast cast conditions.

Top screed slightly damaged, asphalt plug, fine hill & view. A possible SubMarilyn, good excuse for a day on Bute. Great little island.

After the Scottish Geocachers Event on Bute geohike, HH, Roolku, Pharisee and I bagged this trig on our way back to Kilchattan. Syperb views even on a worsening afternoon. The we hotfooted it down the hill to catch the ferry back to the mainland.

As FoF and Haggis Hunter have said, we bagged this one at the end of the Geohike around the southern end of the Island. Started to rain as we arrived but not enough to matter. The pillar is in generally good condition but the centre plug has been replaced with a cement fill. Views very good but would have been exceptional on a bright, clear day.
