Every time I pass the church on the Motorway I say to myself there’s a trig up there. Good to finally have it in the bag. Parked at church, over gate near bus stop, up sheep field through another couple of gates. Skirted field edge until pretty close to trig and then hopped over fence and headed for trigpoint. I almost stumbled into it as it blends in really well and GPSr still said 36m due to dense tree cover.

Mmmm pricklyangelduo, not sure I agree with you. Drove to farm and rang number on gate as gate shut, advised we could walk through farm but must park at the bottom of the road. As we were just leaving the owner called to say we couldn't go through the farm as the 'bulls' had just been put out in the field. So we decided to have a look from Pankerton side. Not to bad, through pasture over wall, fence and then another wall and fence and then a steep section to the top. Shame someone dropped there phone on the way back so we had to do it nearly all again! Luckily only half way and so thankful for the track on my GPSr so we could follow it exactly.

Wasn’t too hopeful of finding this as I didn’t have anything to dig or prod with. However I paced out the distance as per Rob’s log and found a depression and after moving some vegetation spotted something dark blue - it was the plastic bag and sure enough very close by was the bolt covered in a wee bit of mud.

Very similar log as Aqua. I was on edge from that start having read Carole’s log. They clearly don’t want you to park at the end of the track and have invested in several signs! I also parked at crossroads to north, followed track to Beam farm, then mapped tracks past bales, over very rickety gate and through moorland to trig. Last section past small wooded area gets wet and boggy, so wellies are recommended. BSM-style FB. As I approached the trig I could hear an engine and thought here we go the GOML is on his way. It was a farmer in an Argocat, he clocked me and did a couple of circuits round me but never approached me. Very Barry dog at Beam farm so hard to be stealthy but got back to the car with no one having approached me directly. I had a speech all prepared too!

Very loud siren and man with a Belfast accent shouting ‘warning, warning, you prescience has been noted, the police and owner has been informed’.

Couldn't decided on the best approach to this. The forest on the map is long gone and the ground looked very boggy. There was a geocache showing on the map at ND 11161 49604 so decided that it must be possible to get close easily as it wasn't archived. Sure enough the track to the cache is drivable and even has a good parking spot close by. We then more or less took a beeline, avoiding as many obstacles (holes, slippy branches, ditches etc) until we reached the deer fence, which if you are fence phobic like me (I know get a new hobby!) has to be climbed to hug the trig. Overall a good route and if you are careful you can avoid getting wet feet.

I’d be putting this one off since reading Lone Walkers log but today was the day to face the fear! Parked at start of windfarm track, opened gate and then walked to ND 27549 52678. Then through two sets of gates (through one field of cows and calves) to a wooden fence with some lovely barbed wire wrapped around the top. I could see the top of the trig now. However to hug it you had to climb the wooden fence, then negotiate the walk and two stranded barbed wire fence and nettles in the corner to get to the trig. Overall given my limited abilities I think I managed it quite well! Back via two sets of gates (ND 27162 53322, ND 27130 53481) to road (probably the easy approach!) and along road to car. However road is very very busy so beware!

Same as Big J. Very midgey today and didn't stop raining all day! Followed the marked path leading to the crash site. Immediately after the gate in the deer fence, turned left and wandered over rocky outcrops towards the obvious trig. Last bit is a bit of a scramble and apparently I made it look like Everest in the rain. It was a tad slippy in places! Trig has slight damage to a corner. No centre cap but all sight holes are open. Stunning airy perch overlooking the surrounding area. Also visited the nearby crash site which was sombre and poignant.

As per Carol. Good track from A road to east (Ardgilzean Cottage) drive-able to farm where plenty parking. No potholes but tarmac degraded to fine gravel. As I walked up past the farm the owner came out and was happy to grant me permission to walk to the trigpoint. I wouldn't describe the dogs as barky. They are just dogs! I had somehow convinced myself and Mr U2 that he had done this trig, so he stayed in the car. When I got back to the car, he said he really didn't remember the location but as he was still in a fragile state after Orrock Hill yesterday he decided it would remain unbagged for today anyway!

After driving about trying to find suitable parking and venturing towards the wee lochan, we ended up at a parking spot the the north which states no parking access at all times and keep dogs under control (NO 19484 24425). This was an old sign and probably from a time when shooting occurring within the forest. Given the state of the path it has been some time since any vehicles went up here! We follow the track until it came to an end and then just followed the arrow to the trigpoint which as we expected we stumbled upon rather than spotted from a distance. After bagging the trig we headed for R.A.M Blair's Backyard cache (NO 19401 23041). A mistake as the route from the cache back to the path was a nightmare, high bracken and thistles with added nettles and lots of holes and then a wall to climb. Another adventure for sure and very glad to get back to the path!

From south past the house at Hatton, then to Orrock. After chatting to the house owner she advised there was a small fence to climb and then to follow the very faint track zig zag up the hill which the horses used to take. Well let’s say it had been some time since any horses took this route. It was very hot and steep and had ferns that entangle you and lots of wee hidden holes. Ferns as high as us in places. Couldn’t see a path up though the gorse but luckily (not for Gerry’s heart) we spooked a deer which showed us the way. Tough going all the way there and back, nearly killed us in the heat.

Can't remember exactly where we parked and started for this but (however route on attached screenshot) we took forest tracks for as long as we could and ended up at the base of the crags NX 63287 73182 (only shown on 1:25k). Mr TJR and the boys were ahead of me and took a route straight up, I sadly walked along the crags looking for a way up only finding one at the end at roughly NX 62923 73468. Found this last section a little tough. However when I got the top I was rewarded with the best view - loved it!

As per ted's log not sure if these are the originals are are therefore baggable? The original active stations were conical (Trimbles I think) located on the roof of the building. These have gone so I suspect that station FLA1 should be classed as 'Destroyed'. There are three dome-shaped receivers on top of a tall mast; presumably replacing FLA1 and FLA2 but with a new station name. Whilst resembling in appearance the Leicas commonly used by the OS for active stations, the logo seems to be different.

Approached from Enochdhu (parking at NO 06155 62510), walked towards field centre where I probably could have parked, past a left hand turn (NO 05865 62627 - which shows as a small path on map but is now a large vehicle track which had many lorries coming down it full of ballast) and a sign pointing straight on for the hill. Just at the field centre the other left hand track had a red and white strippy strip across it and a stop don’t proceed forestry operations (NO 05448 62830) - this was the only other route I had planned so decided to ignore the signage. After a short while I ended up on a main forest track (Cemetery as mentioned by GerryU2 NO 05475 62519) where a guy in a digger was making more track, he stopped and let me pass him not making any comment, so I presumed the track was ok past him. Well long story short none of the paths on my map are obvious. Up we ended up in the heart of the forestry operations which was hard work, once at trig I hoped to find the other track down. However after starting well, it disappeared probably due to lots of fallen trees which meant lots of detours. Eventually decided to more or less follow the wall down to the main track which was ok in places but every now and then we faced a maze of fallen trees which in some places meant crawling underneath.

There are two ways to do this trigpoint, read Aqueously90's log and presume the security fencing is 2 foot tall but get there and find out the gate most loggers have mentioned has lots of barbed wire wrapped round any gaps and looks as if it's all been done from the inside. Eventually find a Gerry sized gap with some barbed wire pulling it together, remove this barbed wire and squeeze through, find trig and go back through hole. Or find the 3ft high new fence near the buildings at the corner of the road which have no barbed wire and calmly step over them and into the reservoir compound. The choice is yours.

Initially my GPSr was sending me over the railway line but Mr U2 kept me right. Found the paving slab with a dog pooh bag on top and insisted Mr U2 move it as it was too heavy for my weak arms lol. However bolt not underneath it? So after shuffling away of soil with shoes and eventually having to get on hand and knees and use a nearby small rock for digging, then the block was exposed. Mr U2 said I was a minger, digging with my bare hands at the roadside. 2" bolt at edge of grass and dense hedge opposite lamp post number 9. Left with paving slab on top.

Once at the top through gate and along track, then took a right hand fork along low fence to be faced with the deer fence again which had a small section that was broken and you could just limbo through. Then across a small wall and a low barbed wire fence and onwards to trig. Great views in all directions on a lovely sunny day. Back via the corner post of the deer fence which we climbed and then back via same route to the car.

Looked for parking as suggested by BigJ but couldn't spot it, road very snowy and slippy so I then nearly got stuck turning round. I then decided to try the golf course and got stuck in the car park, luckily the 'owner' spotted me and came to assist. He not only parked my car in a place so I could get out later but he got me unstuck, gave me permission to park and checked I was back safe later. Once parked followed tracks to NH 44618 41963 described by BigJ as the terminal hammerhead, then headed along a sort of rutted track to the forest edge and onwards to the trigpoint. We then found someone else's tracks through the snow (person and dog) and followed them almost all the way to the trigpoint, well at least to the base of the crag. Then found our way around the side of the crag, going to the right and round and up to the trigpoint. Very windy on top but lovely views. Then got the shelter out below the trigpoint for lunch where it started snowing. Followed same route back to the car.

Lovely sunny cold day for this. Drove up to farm and met farmer in his tractor coming down the hill. He said it was fine for me to park and told me where so I wouldn’t interfere with his work. He also told me it was quite a way! And very ‘sheepy’ whilst glancing at Robbie in the boot. ‘Noted’ I said and as I intended to keep the wee boy on the lead it wasn’t a problem. Followed track up through gate in rutted sheep pasture which would be very muddy in warmer weather, today it was rock hard - a bonus. Lots of sheep and Robbie was very well behaved and didn’t take much notice of them. The young deer we met at the next gate didn’t even interest him, might have been another matter if he was off the lead! After gate took a beeline to the trig. Quite snowy and boggy with some very deep holes but managed to negotiate with no issues and soon at the trig, which has great views. Quite cold so gave the shelter a go - it was great very warm and we ate our lunch in comfort before heading off down the hill and back to the car. #3 2019

From the fence line waypoint to the trigpoint is pathless holey heather (the track on the 1:25k doesn't exist anymore), tough, tough, tough. Parked at N 57 24.971 W 002 57.304, over gate at N 57 24.962 W 002 57.277, then take the path to the left up to another gate at N 57 24.918 W 002 57.118, follow this track until the T junction at N 57 24.910 W 002 59.946 and turn right. Follow the track until the fork and take the left track at N 57 24.604 W 002 56.164, which doesn't look like a track at all. Then to the fence line at N 57 24.276 W 002 55.526. Then the fun starts, 600m of holey heather, the two steps forward, three steps back type.

There is indeed a car park which looks like it was FC once at N 57 23.083 W 002 31 767 or in old money NJ 68268 32815. A grassy track leads from the car park all the way to the trigpoint and you can take various firebreaks as shortcuts. Fencelines on 1:25k no longer in existence. Good views of Bennachie.

Every time I go past this trigpoint I don’t like the look of any of the parking spots, including Boghead which looks like it would be a spot I would get stuck in and have to ring Mr TJR begging him to come and get me. So I still had a couple of birthday vouchers left and asked if I could be dropped off for this trig on the way home from Aboyne. Started at Carol’s gate NJ391323 and then into the field which had long grass and lots of boggy snow covered holes, great. However soon replaced by a reasonable grazing field which I followed to the top corner to open field entrances to the trig field only having to climb one wooden fence. Trig is in a flattish heather covered top which means you can’t see it until almost upon it. Heather was quite deep and snowy but trig soon in sight. Back via a different route as Mr TJR had found a good parking spot at Drywalls.

At lot has changed in these parts since 2012. Originally tried to drive to parking at NJ 7067 3005 where there is now a new house. Then tried to drive round the back of the house and Gill nearly lost the bottom of her car. After walking behind the hedge trying to find a way into the field we decided that the only way was through the gate into the field at the back of the new house (as the field had a new barbed wire fence and an internal electric one). Gill wasn't too keen on approaching the house so we left this one on the to do list. Today Mr U2 and myself decided to take another approach driving up to Irelandbrae farm and asking for permission. After knocking the door the only answer came from the dog so we went into the field behind the farm up to the trigpoint. Sadly we couldn't hug the trig due to new fence (barbed) and electric fence in very close proximity and can advise that the only way to is via the gate behind the new house.

We also visited the geocache and whilst doing this would have crossed the high point too.

Didn’t hold out much hope for finding this, especially when the first place we navigated to in error took us to an empty field. Second time lucky we ended up at a bunker which was a good start.

Headed up the track which is very good and also surprised to see people joining us this late. Didn't take too long to get to the trigpoint, passing the mast on the way, sadly didn't bag the 3rd item (TP8532 - Warning Light Hill) , it was late and cold and I hadn't done enough research, so guess one day I might see the view.

Truth path for half of it, the rest over pathless ground, ok to start off with but last 400m or so on holey heather, steeper too! Having just done the trig on the other side of the gliding club interesting to see a few gliders overhead whilst bagging the trig. Followed the old fenceline more or less from NO 46616 95367 to trig.

(NJ 65671 43838) Decided to be bold and drive up the track to the gate (had a for sale sign at the start so surely went somewhere), quite high grass in the middle and Mr U2 was looking a tad worried but it all worked out in the end. Gate opened at the end of the track, so had space to turn round, then a quick nip over fence and up to trig. No issues with deer fences as all avoided.

A bit of an epic this one. Initially attempted from Boghead of Laithers NJ 68067 45983, where Mr U2 had very specific instructions from the home owner on the best way to the trigpoint. Some time later after visiting Turriff and backtracking somewhat. We ended up at a farm south of Cliftbog where the homeowner with her lovely border terrier advised to start at North Cleftbog farm. Once at North Cliftbog (NJ 69476 46171) we entered field over some old farm machinery and headed towards the trigpoint, only 1 barbed wire fence to cross (NJ 68933 46123). Summit in the middle of freshly plowed and very muddy looking field so not bagged.

Having read Clochandighter's log and others I was put of finding this trig. However it sat there on the map bugging me as it was my closest remaining Aberdeenshire trig. Today out with Mr U2 it was the day to finally tackle it. Drove up farm track at NJ 58518 57902 towards 'Old Cornhill' farm. Decided the abandoned farm house at NJ 57944 56838 was about as far as it was sensible to drive then followed the track up to Old Cornhill farm, over gate (NJ 57656 56465 - don't catch yourself on the pieces of exposed metal!) and then followed a line up towards the trig and picked a line through the gorse to the trig itself. Not too bad at all. Mr U2 already feeling he was mis-sold as the trig was not a poke stop! Hill summit from hill bagging on GPSr showed summit as downhill from the trigpoint in the gorse.

Pillar sits on a high plinth in the hedgerow but has had a platform built round it at base level, with ladder stile on N side to give easy access. Memorial plaque attached for Capt Holman, an ex-OS employee from 1926-48.

Having read the previous log "Not exactly the easiest to get to. Steep bank to climb then through fence. Field is pitted with hoofs. Friendly horse in field." and it being quite hot and the bank looking very unattractive we parked up the road a little and walked down to the house by the trigpoint and asked for permission which was kindly given by the lady owner who was enjoying the sunshine.

Very tiring day from the parking area at Loch Quoich via kayak then onwards to the trigpoint. Zig zag path saved me from near death however it was so hot and in some sections it had no breeze at all. Same route back. Loch had changed considerably since the mill pond in the morning and it took a while to get back to the launch spot. The clouds gathered as we crossed back over the loch and I wondered if a loch was a good place to be in a thunderstorm, a tad late to ask when I was in the middle of the loch! Start 10am - finish 5.35pm.

Circuit of trigs (G, P, F, E, H). From E to H wasn't too bad compared to the previous trig to trig. I made my way from N57° 09.161' W4° 43.776' via the large track to N57° 08.832' W4° 43.081' then picked a route up through the trees for the last 130m, not too bad at all.

Extensive forestry work in the area, got trapped amongst the fallen and felled trees and fell off some when trying to tight rope walk along two which snapped, came out completely battered and bruised. I think there may be a firebreak from N57° 09.470' W4° 43.400' which will follow the contour line along to the trig, alternatively, make your way to N57° 09.161' W4° 43.776' avoiding the felled area and take a large tractor track which leads up to the trigpoint which is the route we took out. This one was a totally f***ing nightmare.

This however was probably the easiest trig to trig journey, we tried to follow the bands of rock as they were much easier to walk on and the bog wasn't too hard to negotiate either.

Circuit of trigs (G, P, F, E, H). From G you can clearly see P on the hill opposite but you can also see you have to drop to the track and ascend back up again. The descent was easy but the slog up the hill on the other side from N57° 09.367' W4° 42.178' was over tough tussocky ground, which looked dry but had big bog holes through it and every step was an effort as you didn't make much progress, also no shade so it was very hot, we sat for a while at a rocky crag (N57° 09.524' W4° 42.148') to try and get some shade and then tried to follow the rocky bands of ground to make progress easier to the trigpoint. Fantastic views to Fort A.

Intended to park as close as possible but couldn't spot anywhere, very very busy road. Ended up in the carpark at N51° 16.071' W0° 48.949'. I then walked down the road on the up and down verge to try and spot an entrance to the land where the trig was, high fence and locked gates didn't seem to hold out much hope. Then I spotted a gap under the fence at N51° 16.154' W0° 48.435' where it went over a stream, even had a handy pallet to stand on. I was then on the correct bit of land and made my way to the trig. Saw both dog walkers and cyclists in the area of land so there must be a way in somewhere? Walked back via the path to the carpark on the other side of the road, much safer. However I did spot a benchmark at a culvert on the way to the trig which I wouldn't have if I'd taken the forest route. http://www.bench-marks.org.uk/bm95547

Managed to squash a few but still got stratched to pieces getting a picture of the FB. Took half the bushes with me getting back to road, most in my hair! Met the owner of the stables on the way back, I’d blocked his gate and he needed out! He asked me curiously if I was lost and explained about my odd hobby.

Easy bag, took track from housing estate to trigpoint and water tower. Near to the Carrick Stone - "The three-foot Carrick Stone is reckoned to have been a Roman altar, used by the self-same invaders who were responsible for the construction of the Antonine Wall. There they kept their traditions of worship alive as they cut a swathe throughout ancient Britain and indeed, the rest of Europe. But this is not the Carrick Stone's only claim to importance. Historians believe that it was used as a command post and rallying point for the troops of Robert the Bruce who, as the Earl of Carrick, gave the stone its name. There is a hole in the stone where the Bruce is said to have planted his standard shortly before the decisive Battle of Bannockburn."

Strange FBM quiet a distance from the road. Parked at the house at the end of the road to Corwar Mains and the plan was to go over the gate up the track to the FBM, however gate had barbed wire wound round the top, clearly someone doesn't want you crossing here but if you go down the road a bit the fence has fallen over and can be easily crossed.

This definitely wasn't on the to do list after Ailsa Craig, however I'd been informed it was (a) a great hill and (b) had views to Ailsa Craig, so it had to be done, not really sure where I got the energy from to get there but I did, memorial to the wee dug made me feel a tad sad - I'll never forget you Charlie!

Be careful to get the correct track on the way back down or you might end up in denser trees as I did. Fantastic views from the trigpoint.

Less than 400m from parking, what could go wrong?! Parked at entrance to wind turbine (N57° 34.061' W2° 15.897') and was surprised to find the gate open. Took large track until it was filled with gorse and then pondered the best route. Decided to climb the corner of the fence to the right (barbed) and follow fence line up to next gate. Unable to see the trig at all from this field. Headed back towards corner and spotted a large blue tub and decided to climb into the middle of the two fences where the gorse thinned out a bit using the blue tub. Once over into the left hand field I followed the fenceline again towards the trig. Then disaster struck, 8 or 9 deer ran in front of us and Robbie pulled the lead from my hand and ran off at some speed after them. Some time later and some distance away I found him but lost my GPSr and iPhone in 'the chase'. Eventually having found them again I met the landowner and we had a chat about dogs chasing deer and I asked about the trigpoint. She remarked..."It'll be covered in gorse, doubt you'll see it or be able to get to it". Once back at the fenceline I spotted the bottom of the trig and could just see the flush bracket but knowing the effort so far I decided to snap off as much of the gorse as possible with only my bare hands and use the blue bucket to climb in closer to the trig for a spikey hug, ouchies. The next visitor should bring some secatuers. Left via much easier access at N57° 33.992' W2° 15.818'.

This has been on the to do list for far too long, probably because every time I attempt to do and decide I can't park at Beech Croft bungalow the steep drop down to the parking puts me off. However today was the day, the bit from the car to the bungalow was definitely the steepest section and once on the green lane the bushes provided quite a lot of shelter from the wind. Easy enough route up, just very very muddy. Once on the top fantastic views but very windy and cold, sheltered in some bushes for lunch and then off down to the car.

Intended to started from CP (N57° 12.741' W3° 00.083'). However track up was a very slippery slope so we had to park on the verge near the road and hope the car managed to stay on the grass and not slip down onto the road whilst we headed up the hill. This would have been a very easy track in different conditions but today it was very icy and snowy. At N57° 12.795' W3° 01.096' we took a track to the right which then started to descend, so we decided to head up through the trees (which I found hard going!) to N57° 12.886' W3° 01.303' where we ended up on a track, we then found a route up through the trees to the trigpoint which was very steep and had a lot of snow to negotiate, tough going. Very windy at the trigpoint so didn't hang about to admire the views. Found the path back which ended up at N57° 12.780' W3° 01.466' which probably would have been a better route up. Still had to take a man path to get back onto the original track. Perhaps without the snow cover route finding is a lot easier!

Parked at the very full Rowan Tree restaurant, hoping for a quick walk down the road and a short search. I only took my walking pole as the on lookers might have thought it odd if I walked off with the spade. However after 15 minutes prodding with the walking pole, I couldn't spot it, but had found what I thought sounded like the block which was about 5cm deep. So back to car for the spade, which I hid in a Lidl bag, well at least the end and back down the road. As I was digging I started to have a nose bleed and a big one, so I only managed to dig out just enough to expose the bolt and didn't managed to cover it up. Had to use my buff as a hanky and arrived back at car with very red hands and a very red buff, only knows what the on lookers must have thought whilst they enjoyed their Sunday lunches! As per RHW's log - 1" bolt in block 4" down, in depression. 2.9m from gatepost, 2.3 from kerb, 2m from wall. Little Chef on sketch is still Rowan Tree restaurant

Then retraced my steps to the picnic bench and down the path to the fire break I'd spotted on the way up, followed this firebreak until I reached the field which I hoped contained the trigpoint but I still had 190m to go, eventually spotted a wee path through the conifers and was soon near the trigpoint which I then spotted shining out with it's white coat. Took a track through the conifers direct from the trigpoint to the field, much easier to spot on the way back. Waterfall and library are well worth a look.

YSM0458 Clauchland. Really should have gone back to the hostel as it was starting to get dark! Drove up the road and parked near a house, headed up the road, past the farm, over the style and into the mud bath! Didn't pay enough attention to the direction of the path and went too far up and had to come back down which really annoyed me, eventually out of the mud bath and on a much better path up to the trig, which shone out in the dusk with is lovely freshly painted exterior. Last bit up to the trig was a slog as I was shattered.com. Great views over to Holy Island.

Don't try this at home! Decided to walk 2km on the wrong path to the fallen rocks to bag the geocache and then decided the 'best' way to the trig was up the deer fence. It actually probably saved my life as I practically dragged myself up the hill via the fence, it took an age, watched by a couple of deer at the top of the hill. At one point some walkers on the coastal path spotted the deer and then me, god knows what they thought of me up the hill! Told myself I wasn't to look at the GPSr for the distance until I got the the corner of the deer fence, I stuck to this and once at the corner it still said 200m! Headed up to the ridge and still had lots of felling to negoiate. Eventually ended up on a track which ended nowhere but I spotted a green FC waypoint marker and headed for that, once at it I had the thought "maybe there will be more that will take me to the trig", turned round and spotted the lovely white sparkling trig in the distance. Followed more green markers to the trig and some on the way back down towards the navigation post, then they disappeared totally. I then followed a mushroom path (you'll know if you do it) or the path of total concentration, very very slippy logs and bark, all conveniently arranged in the right direction for you to ski down lol. Finally ended up on track I probably should have started on and through a gate to the car park, where I bumped into Mr Law.

Parked to the north west of the trig at Rothie Vale. Followed the marked tracks up through the forest. Hoped for easy entry into the trig field but no such luck, after battling through some conifers found myself faced with two multi stranded barbed wire fences with an electric fence on the field side. After some time I plucked up the courage to touch the fence and found it was off. Then somehow managed to climb both fences and into the field. Back via the corner of the field (same two barbed wire fences to cross) but into more open forest which was much easier.

This one was a bit of a nightmare as pillar is in a field surrounded by a Hawthorn Bush and a 6ft high security fence, we did spot a very small gap you could have crawled through but you would have been scratched to pieces. You can also get close to it if you enter the school grounds. Mr U2 ended up climbing the fence and walking through the chest high thistles. I took the much easier approach into the school and managed to touch the trig through the fencing, however it looks as if the school could be closed at times as they did have gates which looked very secure, but fortunately open today. #13 day#4 - equal numbers to day#1 Total day#3 #12 Total day#2 #11 Total day#1 #13

Then track disappeared and it was through the tramlines in the fields. Then went through barbed wire fence and into woods. Then followed faint tracks until found main track that took us to golf course. Walked up through that and only 60m from pillar, we got a lecture from a golfer. Once we got to the pillar it was a straightforward track down to field and across that and back into main track. Going back to the wildlife place close to caravan park.

Found YSM313 Shakespeare cliff. Definitely the most memorable of the trip. Both for the excitement and the fact that I am a changed woman, two barbed wire fences and a wee ditch crossed in little or no time with no fuss, Mr U2 was beside himself with awe, I think he thinks someone else turned up at the airport for this trip! Firstly we drove down to the info centre through the tunnel after waiting what seemed like an age for the lights to change. Once down at sea level we had a conversation about 'it won't be up on the cliff top will it'.... After realising it might be we consulted a guy there who gave us a few options but nothing suitable, it took some time too, during which he informed us of all the dangers and made sure were had all the information for an informed decision! We ended up parking at the CCTV cameras as darkness was coming and crossed the 2 fences and across grassland to the Vanessa pillar. Interesting channel tunnel chimney vents around the area. #10 day#1 - most memorable

Bagged as YSM0743 Isle of Harty. Mr U2 had a system for our YOSM list, where YOSMs where coloured red, amber or green. Green meant (to me!) roadside or less than 500m on a track, so we didn't need to allow time to get to and from it, e.g. takes no more than 15 minutes. This was green! Should have been amber, took track from hotel where a wedding was taking place down to the shore line, followed the shore line and then had to head up to the correct contour line through the jaggies up to the trig point, back via the same route (although we did investigate if we could cut through the inn and gatecrash the wedding but it was all fenced off). Spotted the happy couple getting photos done on the shoreline. I think this was where time started to slip away from us as this one was out of the way and we now had to drive all the way round to the other side of the inlet. #4 day#1 15:22 already!

Woke early as camping and thought I could fit this in before anyone else was up and about, armed with a previous log which mentioned a style and a path, off I went parking at Carsaig bay and walking up past the cemetery, through the static camp site and through the farm gate. After that I would like to say it was all plain sailing, however I couldn't find a style and didn't fancy heading up through the ferns towards the crag, so I went along to the second gate, headed up the stream slightly before it and found a sort of path up through the head height ferns to the wooded area, I then picked my way through the holey wood and eventually found the trig point. Tried to head off in another direction but ended up next to very step drop so decided to retrace my steps. Took about 2 hours I think, I though it was another 5 minute job!

Having studied Aqueously90s log, I decided to take a route from Bridge of Brown past Mains of Glenlochy and Tomlay to the ruin and then to try and find the track that took the boundary line and the Allt Mor or March Burn to the trigpoint. My heart sank when I got out of the car at the phone box and the GPSr said 3.6km, Charlie has not been well lately and I thought we may be undertaking too big a journey! All ok to ruin, then the going got a little rougher and ended up in quite high heather and it was very hot, Charlie was really struggling. After the gate we went down to the burn for a cool off and headed up to find the path at the boundary line. Nae path and at this point Charlie did his very odd howling and barking which we think is 'I'm not doing this anymore'. We still had about 1.2km to go but we'd come so far. So after a quick phone call to Mr TJR, I decided to take a very slow route straight up carrying Charlie, took over an hour to do the rest of the journey. Surprised to see an off road motorbike at the ridge line, had a good chat to the rider and took in the stunning views. He told me the memorial cairn used to have a log book to sign but it's gone missing, a real shame as it had over 30 years of visitor comments in it!. Off back down the hill to meet Mr TJR who'd brought the doggy rucksack so Charlie could be carried in style off the hill.

I had passed the disease precaution signs a couple of times and therefore given this trig a wide birth. However having read the recent log "Nice roadside trig", I thought it was worth a try. Once at the hardstanding I couldn't see the trig at all, head height ferns in all directions, also the hard standing has muck piled high at the end and the GPSr was telling me the trig was behind it. So over gate and into field which was enclosed by an electric fence which I could hear humming and then under a barbed wire fallen fence onto a wall and into the ferns. Ground was firmer and safer than it looked and I was soon at the trig point but couldn't see it until I was on top of it. Roadside this trig isn't and the road is a bumpy farm track.

Had read previous log "Parked at gate and walked up and past resr to stone circle", however didn't know where the gate was and couldn't see the farm track from the main road. Parked at some green gates and headed up a track in the general direction of the trig to find myself in another cow field with them all following me. Then once a little higher I could see the farm road I should have been on, so crossed barbed wire fence onto this and headed up to the farm at Souterhill, no one about here so could possibly have driven up to farm or at least to waterworks half way up track. Anyhow I was here now and faced with a gate and a note "cattle in field", I could see that, they didn't bother me going up thankfully and once in the reservoir at the top I spotted some lose barbed wire in the top corner and was soon over at the trig point. Lovely stone circle, great spot. The cows on my return became my best pals and got very close and personal, I tried the hands up making myself look as big as possible and this didn't work. I have never climbed a gate so fast.

Roughly 5km round trip from Pond Croft. Definitely not the best way to do this. Walked up to quarry and couldn't find the expected path but found another one which headed in the general direction. Very wet and boggy and my shoes were soon soaking. Got to within 200m of trig and then had to bog and heather hop, tough. Found the path on the way back but this involved climbing a wall and it was a path seldom used by anyone for some time I expect, you couldn't see it other than the water running down it under your feet. However heather alternative far too holey so just had to walk the river.

Bagged along side YSM026 Ribblesdale. Asked permission to park at South side farm for a relevantly easy walk to this very tall FBM against a wall. Then onto Sulbar pillar via a wee obstacle course of a gate, sheep hole in fence (not really Mrs TJR sized), a double pallet barbed wire combo and a double gate shaped like an A frame with some more barbed wire. Great fun 😆

Meet some mountain rescuers with a lovely Jack Russell and a Golden Retriever. Due to taking an off road route which was ill advised and didn't save me any time and having to go back on the path, I kept Mr U2 waiting at the trigpoint for some time. Had a lovely cream scone and coffee at Katie's honesty cafe, yum yum 👅

Bagged as YSM245 Thistle Green. Well what can I say about this? 2.7km as the crow flies and if you'd started this at 10 o'clock I'm sure you'd say it was a very pleasant walk! However it was 4.30ish when we started and 6.30pm when we finished. The paths take you on some big dog legs and I found the one section quite steep. Once you leave the main track you need to skirt round the lochan as the ground around it is very very boggy. Lovely spot at the trigpoint and a wee goose sat guarding the lochan

Presumed the trig was on the top but it wasn't, Mr U2 had sped on ahead so went too far up lol sometimes the tortoise wins! Detoured off track towards the trig to be faced with a large section of box hedge, still 50m, so we battled through. Mr U2 went commando, no he didn't take his pants off! He crawled through nice and low. I chose the bull in a China shop method and took half the hedge with me as I went along! Eventually found it, to discover it was only about 5m into the hedge in the lower section! Much easier descent!

Staying at a cottage on Dunbog farm so made a circular walk of this up the main track past the wind turbines, up to the trig point. Great views. We then tried to follow the same track towards Balmeadow hill with a view to getting on the track at Johnston back to Dunbog. This meant a few fence crossings and some trudging across fields as the map and reality don't match near the end of the walk and we ended up having to do a short section of the main road to get back on the track to Dunbog.

Initially tried to get access to the coastal path from the farm shop but a guy painting the building told us we'd need to go down the road towards the houses to get onto the path. Once on the path we could see a digger in the distance and as we approached we could see it was on the route to the pillar! Once up off the path there were signs saying 'no admittance, building site', looks like a caravan park being built to us. After begging Mr TJR he went over to the digger driver to ask if we could visit the trig and that we would be careful etc etc. However on the way to the trig we met 'the boss' who was none to happy about us being on site but we proceeded anyway and the trig was soon bagged.

Took the muddy South path round the loch, then up towards Black Loch and then up a very steep track (following a fence line) up to the ridge line near the fort and then over to the trigpoint. Fantastic views in all directions. Took a track back towards the Loch to a new looking style and then down a path towards the trees which just stopped dead and then had to head back to the fenceline we came up. Nae easier on the way down! Took North track back around loch much less muddy.

Parked near Black Gate on the verge and took the track along towards the trigpoint, headed up through gates and then faced by a barbed wire fence to get into what I thought was the trig field. After getting over the fence I noticed style at N52° 27.623' W3° 19.459'. However I still had another fence to climb, this time with double barbed wire. After much searching for a gate with no joy, I covered the barbed wire with my fleece and found a red tub (the one for the sheep lick) to use as a step, very handy. Trig was then soon bagged. Great views all round. Also YSM546.

It was only 80m but through dense conifers and the type that try to eat you alive, if you can keep low you are fine but my hair and conifers don't mix so I had to do a Kenny from Southpark look and keep everything covered. They still managed to wear a hole in my troos though!

Spotted the hat trick whilst passing the day before, Berntsen, FBM, Trig (100m from road), how hard could they be....... Bernsten buried, took 1/2 hour to find, FBM in comparison easy, parked at school, just down the track on the left up a slippy bank. The trig, 100m.....easy....? Parked in field entrance opposite gate, climbed gate and headed for the fence which luckily had no barbed wire. So I grabbed it with both hands and started to climb over.....argh, electric and on, full on......ouchies. Back in field, couldn't see any way over or under the fence so back to car. Followed road round and down the hill and parked next to a house. Trig still only 300m away....should I try from this side? Well she who dares.... 1/2 later and after climbing two barbed wire fences and spending 20 minutes battling through gorse and bracken, torn to pieces I finally found the trigpoint. Out much easier, only about 20 meters of gorse. So top tip, walk around the gorse until you are about 20m away then head in. Bring secateurs!

After walking way past a track we could have took, we back tracked and agreed this was the best option. It was muddy and snowy and much churned up by forestry vehicles but it got us nearer to the trig and on the higher path. Again we couldn't see the fire break and again walked past the track we could take. Back tracked and headed up across the ditch trying to use the log with little success and headed into to the trees. Luckily we had found the fire break and other than a few fallen trees it was relatively easy. Trig and cache very close together and quickly spotted. The firebreak was like something out of Narnia and we both hoped for James McAvoy would appear out of the forest at any moment. ;-)

Took a longer route to this than probably necessary parking up the hill slight just off the main road (N56° 26.406' W2° 55.969'). However good track all the way and just a short section of rough terrain to get round the mast compound. Right you have to go over a barbed wire fence. Left into pheasant compound much easier and over a fallen fence. Lots of no dogs signs, presumable due to the pheasant farms.

Parked near style at N 56° 23.483' W 003° 03.746' and headed into the field, hoping for an easy bag. Followed track along tree line. Turned right and made a beeline for the trig which ended at a wall and a barbed wire fence. Couldn't see a gate or style so climbed it! Got caught a few times as usual! On the way back spotted a handy style (N56° 23.400' W3° 03.572') and covered barbed wire in the corner of the field with a well worn track all the way back to the car!

Recommended route: Park just below Middleton farm (very barky dog at farm), walk due North along the large track, over the cattle grid, keep going until you reach a large track on the left (N56° 37.108' W3° 23.514'), follow this for a short muddy section where there are several cows, through gate and then take the next large track on the left all the way to the lochan and then take a small deer track off to the left (N56° 37.432' W3° 24.492') and up to the trigpoint. Mrs TJRs route: As above but before cattle grid head into very muddy suck your boots off field, then ignore track to the left and try to find the smaller track shown on the map and end up trudging through heather and bog for 1.5km and get totally soaked, to discover on the way back a perfectly good M25 sized track.

Tried to follow Clochandighter's route 'Climb footpath southwards from NJ868165 until clear of woods. Then go well DOWN western slope of hill to find TP.' attempting to park near Rosevalley - however couldn't spot anywhere suitable to park without blocking a drive way. So round to Forresterseat farm, drove all the way up, all very quite on a Sunday morning and didn't want to wake everyone up. So headed back down the drive way and found a muddy spot to park on the track up to the other house (N57° 14.210' W2° 13.598). Headed into the woods ignoring the GOML signs, spooked some deer and spotted the other house looking totally empty, headed over a home made style and some insulation over the barbed wire into the sheep field for Forresterseat farm. I could see the trig, it's in full view of the house and was surrounded by an electric fence. 2 very friendly sheep approached and I found myself asking one "should I go under and photograph the flush bracket?" - She said yes I'm sure! Or maybe I'm baaaarmy! Anyway I did and then hurriedly headed back over to the style and back through the wood. Heart racing for me as I'm a softy!

Took what sounds like the same route as Clochandighter SITE VISIT: Parked in wide track entrance at NJ312372. Up track, notice posted on gate informing of shooting with high velocity rifles to control deer population - all quiet. Tried to follow mapped route (1:25K only) not convinced what is on the map corresponds to the ground but found different routes up and down, through firebreaks, partly through deep heather. Large crack through pillar near bottom has been well repaired but that is giving way too. 360° panoramic view is dominated by Ben Rinnes. It was Mrs TJRs second visit as the first one with 3 dogs and Granny TJR in tow wasn't going to cut it. 1 week later minus dogs and Grannies and with Mr TJR for reinforcement on we went, climbing the gate and then up the track and followed various firebreaks in deep boggy snow. Took a route back via the Blue Cairn which we must find out more about, this required climbing a deer fence, or going through if you have a refusal lol! No views for us today as cloud level too low.

Parking - N57° 46.219' W4° 14.522' Plan A was to walk to a trig on Boxing Day but the weather didn't look favourable so we decided today was the day. Cnoc An T- Sabhail (S1815) was Plan B but after someone got out of the wrong side of the bed physically and mentally we ended up in the car park for Scotsburn Navigation Pole! Well it is also called Cnoc An T- Sabhail on the map which is all very confusing, that's Mrs TJR excuse anyway! We then started along the drovers trail when we should have kept on the main track! Mr TJR did point this out but was given a stern talking to and told "no it's straight on along the river". Back on the main track we'd now added another 1.5km on to the trip which in the end was around 9.5km. We took the main track all the way to the top and found a fire break which we headed up and took a right towards the pole. Once at the top we spotted 3 more fire breaks and took one of them down to the main track, much less boggy than the one we took up but does have some small trees growing in it so it will be tree filled eventually. Great to see another different type of trig, shame it's not a pillar to add to this years tally ;-) Firebreak - N57° 46.172' W4° 11.861'

Drove up to the track towards the trig, but there was a sign blocking the way. An airsoft game was in progress, so we asked at the office if we could see the trig and the helpful chap said no problem. For our own safety, he asked us to wait until the current game finished (which was only a few minutes). We were escorted up and shown where the trig was, as its used as prop for the games.

Went to the greenhouses first to find the right of way path, but the owner objected. He told us another way up, which turned out to be better and closer to the trig. So we parked at the bus graveyard to the north of the trig and went straight up the hill behind an old digger and through some trees to the trig. Going through the gap to the right would have saved us the bushwhack through the trees at the top.

Took the walk highlands suggested route, starting from the parking just north of Achfary, which apparently has a black phone box as it's on land owned by the same landowner for Westminster? http://www.undiscoveredscotland.co.uk/scourie/achfary/ It said 3.8km from the car park but avoiding the bogs and all the wee detours I think it was at least an 8km round trip, which took us just over 5 hours. We started on the wee track shown on the map and then found a small track which disappeared in places and roughly followed the Leathad na Stioma which has Gneiss ribs apparently! The first part wasn't too bad but the last 750 odd meters was a killer for Mrs TJR as it was very steep! During this section you gained height very quickly. It was all worth it as the weather was lovely and the views superb.
