One of the easiest trigs you can do, but still with spectacular views. Careful that you park well off the road as it is fast and busy!

Pulled in just west of river bridge on A830 then walked via level crossing down to shore. Good view towards a cloud free Ben Nevis.

Inverness-shire. This is an unusual but lovely lochside location, giving good views of Ben Nevis. Asphalt plug.

Lots of sheep about and lots of mussel, razor clam and other shells scattered around.

vgc, asphalt plug. Been driving past this for years before finally discovering trig. Easy bag from E, short grassy track, lovely lochside location on a point with calling waders and great views.

Easy one to bag, takes 10 minutes. Parked in field entrance on A830 heading East, opposite footpath crossing for railway line. Watch out for trains, cross the line, and you will see the Trig easily. Lovely location, but unusual for a Trig to be on a beach.

I wonder why a pillar was needed here, but I am pleased it was. It is a lovely location. I used the easternmost crossing, with the result that I was the wrong side of the river, but there is a footbridge alongside the railway line.

When looking at OS Landranger map 41, one wonders why the OS erected a pillar beside a sea loch at an altitude of just 4m when there are mountainous hills nearby in all directions. A visit to S9707 clearly illustrates why the OS chose this site for a second order triangulation pillar, and again selected the station for continued use in today's satelite era. The views from this point are stunning, and its near neighbours include Ben Nevis. Access to this point is via a level crossing north of the trig. The pillar is in very good condition, GPS plate fitted. Spider has bitumous plug. LHS sighting hole open, others plugged. FB faces NNE. Secondary station in Block NG80, Fort William. Built in 1958 or thereabouts. Now GPS Passive station T1NN0278. Photographed 12/08/2006, GRP.

A convenient level crossing gives access to a field to reach the trig point. Parking on north side of A830 opposite level crossing.

Awesome views along Loch Eil. Trig is a bit skanky (due to tides) but is in a beautiful location. Easy access direct via level crossing.
