|An early evening walk from the hotel. Along the track to the right of the church, by a grassy path to the Lord Colonsay monument, and back by a more direct route of little trods leading to the church. Wonderful views of Jura from the monument.||Nick Down1||19/04/2019|
|After Càrn Mòr. Return visit to take GPS reading. Lift along last stretch of B8086 from near airfield. Up track opposite hotel to its high point, then leftwards on footpath and rough pasture to monument. Cloudy with stiff breeze. Mull and Scarba faint. Jura seen from Corryvreckan to Paps. Back down to hotel.||mainnirnamfiadh||24/09/2018|

|8th and final tump of a 30.3km route from the Backpackers lodge near Kiloran House back to Scalasaig climbing Dun Gallain, Carn Spiris, Beinn Oronsay, Beinn Eibhne, Beinn Arnicil, Carn Airigh Shomhairle and a higher knoll further North then Cnoc an t-Samhla heading for the Cairn then down to the bay and up via short cropped grass to the top, recording 77m @ NR 39052 93738, a short distance away from the monument. This top completes Colonsay!! I continued to explore some standing stones before dropping down to take nourishment at the Pantry before collecting my large rucksack from Colonsay Hotel prior to boarding the ferry back to Oban..||Dazingdale||10/05/2018|

|From 'The Pantry'. To me the monument is more testament to the stoicism of the islanders - and not so much in appreciation of his Lordship.||summitsup||12/06/2015|
|While waiting for ferry. Mont.to Lord Colonsay erected by islanders!||arranc||21/05/2014|
