Apologies if this should really be in the hillwalking / destinations section.

With the current soggy weather, I've taken to wandering up to trig points when I can't climb, but was wondering, what trig points are there that are on top of / near cliffs?

Cheers

Frank

High Neb for starters

The Waterstein Head and (especially) Biod an Athair trigs on Skye are pretty impressive. Picture of the latter here:

welcome to trigpointing!!  -> http://trigpointing.uk/

Full database of trigs on there. The android app is excellent, giving access to 1:50,000 and 1:25,000 OS maps for the whole UK (provided you have network connection).

Thanks for that. I already have the splendid trigpointing app, but as I've only really just started logging them, I was wondering if there was any trigs that I may have inadvertently passed whilst out climbing, (in the days before I started taking notice of them).

I have to say, I'm a climber through and through, but I have found that trig points are about the only thing that can motivate me to go for a walk when the weather is too bad to climb.

A few of the trigs in the Peak I have already inadvertently done, Stanage Neb, Stanage Pole, the one on top of Birchen etc, but am sure there's many I've missed, also many that I could combine with future climbing trips.

Ben Nevis, famously.

If you're Peak based, there's one about a mile NW of Alport Castles. 
(Which is a huge tottering pile of choss - not a place to climb, but interesting to visit at least once.)

Not the best suggestion for soggy weather though, probably.  The poorly defined path that goes there from Alport Castles is a bit gooey at the best of times.

There's one at Mynydd Marian, about 50m back from the top of the route of the same name at Castle Inn Quarry and another at the top of Cefn yr Ogof, above Llanddulas Cave

Holyhead mountain and both the Ormes have TPs.

Alport Castles are reputably good fun in very cold winter contions.
