|Farmer at Kilchatton to north kindly gave permission for me to drive down the track. Best park immediately after third gate as ground beyond soon becomes very muddy||carole engel||18/05/2018|
|Dropped off at S end of Luing by Farsain Cruises. With Darren Giddings, Adrian Rayner and Charles Everett. Walked the length of the island picking up allthe tumps. On to Leccamore.||jonglew||17/05/2018|

|1st of 10 tumps today, Charles Everett, Jon Glew, Adrian Rayner and myself alighted on the Southern tip of Luing (NM74790 05774) by dinghy from Farsain Cruises with kind permission from Mervyn who had booked the boat for the day.We headed NW over to the top beside the Trig pillar. I recorded 64m @ NM 74314 06209. We then headed over to the good track to Kilchatton, veering off past the graveyard heading for Leccamore...||Dazingdale||17/05/2018|
|a grassy knoll 250 m N was of very similar height to the trig.Trig in short grass on hummock in rough sheep pasture with superb views of sea and island all round- great place||Denise||19/04/2018|
|Very easy track stroll to the Vanessa trig. I did spot the bull but like most of his kind, he remained completely docile as I passed||Colin Crawford||13/04/2017|
|Parked at junction and headed straight down the track, heeding the warning from the farmer about the protective cows. Pleasant walk||Thearlaichdubh||13/03/2017|
|Started walking from South Cuan but given lift in m/c sidecar from north of school up Àird Luing track to gate at NM 745065. This gate, like others on the island, appears to be electrified, but has an insulated handle to allow passage. David's bull was hiding behind his numerous and inquisitive progeny, so it seemed wise to leave the track and head uphill to a top NE of the trig, which feels as high if not higher. To trig and back, then down to track and north to South Cuan via Dubh Leathad.||mainnirnamfiadh||25/07/2015|
|Easy walk from Kilchatton (plenty of parking after the farm) - provided that the bull near the end of the track remains friendly!||David Purchase||11/06/2015|
