Here for the trigpoint Macharioch, TP:UK log: Parked roadside due S, end of a passing place (NR 7206 0879), hopped fence and took a direct line over rough, sometimes soggy and rutted cattle pasture. You can skirt the gorse, or plough right through and regret it! Pillar sits at summit of the hill Creagach Leac, there is a sizable chunk of concrete missing from one of the vertical edges with fractures radiating from it. Extensive panoramic views especially of Sanda.thejackrustles16/08/2023
Felt like calling this hill. Golden gorse hill... small and trig toppedvegibagger24/05/2023
After Cara Island trip, drop off on Gigha then 15.30 ferry back to Tayinloan I climbed Knockstapple first then headed over to park just off road to SE. Land churned up in places by cattle who were not too far away. Headed over to Trig then chambered cairn on circuit. Gorse not too much of a problem as plenty of routes through. Lovely views over to Ailsa Craig. Perfect lighting on this day, early evening...Dazingdale21/05/2023
Roadside parking, end of a passing place, due S (NR 7206 0879). Cattle country, all friendly though.jonglew19/05/2023
