Suidhe Chatain

A steep little hill on the east coast of Bute (Argyll & Bute), Suidhe Chatain (or Chattan's Hill) rises to 157m (515 feet) a quarter-mile (0.4 km) southwest of Kilchattan Bay. Geologically, the hill represents a microgabbro intrusion of Carboniferous age. Its summit is marked by an Ordnance Survey triangulation pillar, the West Island Way curves around the hill, while a woodland called the Suidhe Plantation occupies its northern slopes.
