My 1000th extant pillar. Great day and a great weekend with friends old and new. Took a route from Ellivreid Farm up onto the ridge following grassy tracks and paths, fairly easy. I think it took about 2 hours to the top. Back via the same route.

Struggled to find somewhere suitable to park and ended up at the entrance to Hillhead croft NJ 86927 37754. Trig is now clearly visible from the road as there has been extensive tree felling, just leaving a thin line at the road edge, presume these will also be felled at some point? Had a wee look at the nearby ROC station, no torch and presumed it might be quite wet as the hatch is stuck open, so didn't venture inside.

Wondered about seeing if you could drive as far as the mast and you probably could, however when following the road around to the farm at Mains of Inkhorn, I could see the mast and the trig and several open gates. So I decided to park at NJ 92819 40345 at Ladys Den, then over gate at NJ 92817 40338, then through gates at NJ 92834 40287 and NJ 92831 40237 and up to the trig, pretty easy going.

Parked near the wheelie bins at the track end for Lochan Montfothie Redstones (NJ 98441 41391) and then crossed the road and headed up the field edge to the trigpoint. Field had not long been planted and field edge a tad muddy, you could have avoided it by walking up the other side of the fence in between the fence and the electric fence, only discovered this on the way back.

Parked at NO 47391 95646. Misconstrued a previous log which read 'No eroded paths to this one great' - as 'great paths all the way'. 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. Back via same route, must have followed the fence line a lot closer on the return as I kept getting my feet caught up in hidden barbed wire buried in moss and foliage.

Parked at NO 49624 98925, over gate and along track, then up the hill through the head high ferns, which covered rocks and holes until you reach the heather/thorns/broom/gorse. Meet a stag at the trigpoint and watched some more gliders before heading off down to battle the hillside on my return. Managed to follow the fenceline most of the way, easier than being in the middle of the ferns.

Not as hard as I was expecting. Parked at NJ 62676 46299, then walked up the track as far as NJ 63180 46456, just before the hay bails and noticed a ride in the direction of the trigpoint, followed this up (slippy under foot on fallen branches but all more or less flat so nothing to climb over), then once near the trigpoint headed into trees, last 40m had to keep very low, so much so I nearly walked straight past the trigpoint. I would suggest you turn for the trig at NJ 63079 46068. Took an easier route back, direct out of forest keeping low for 20 odd metres to NJ 63166 46471, then down an open track that follows the side of the forest down to the hay bails again. Lots of junk on the track, 2 van seats, a dressing table, some computer tables and other bits and bobs, odd to cart them all up here to dump them?

Mr TJR parked in a field entrance (NJ 58974 14372) as there really wasn't anywhere to park, he was then given a good telling off by a local and told you can't park in a field entrance, not even if you are waiting in the car apparently. I followed the 'track' which disappeared and ended up on some rough cattle rutted ground, then had to cross numerous gates (NJ 58804 13773) and fences, one of which had lots of barbed wire (new), ended up using a huge cattle lick bucket to hold the strands open so I could get through. Once at trig I didn't fancy a return journey so asked Mr TJR to drive around to Broomhill Farm, still had to negotiate the wall and the gorse down to the car. Suggest you go from Broomhill Farm to NJ 57889 13099, then to NJ 57847 13144 and up to NJ 57726 13279 through two gates and up to the trigpoint, return via the same route.

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.

Wasn't sure which road to approach from. However it's the back road (Greenlane) not the main one and as others have said it's at the end of the long drive past reservoir for Fernhayes (SY 32615 9637). Car on drive, back gate open, rang bell and looked about but no one home. Trig painted white and well looked after.

As per Jon Glew - Roadside parking at 166m spot height to N. Good path down to the SW CP, veered off W at Dawes, following field bdy to trig. 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. His family are adoptees and are obviously proud of their ancestor - the pillar also has a reasonably fresh coat of white paint. There are some bramble of the trig platform and beware the barbed wire under the wee ladder as I caught my new blouse on it!

Never mind the trig being slightly damaged, the bagger also now is! Trig on slippy bank near corner of golfers practice area, surrounded by high ferns and bracken, couldn’t see it until I climbed up on bank. Whilst trying to squash vegetation to get a photo, I slipped and ended up on my back some way down the bank, entangled in ferns and bracken. Took some time to get back up. Parked in practice area carpark, gate openable and easy enough to drive in. No where really to park on road other than blocking the gate.

The fence has been repaired very recently, lots of cable ties so no actually hugging the trig today.

Very tiring day from the parking area at Loch Quoich via kayak to xxx then onwards to the trigpoint via x and x. 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.

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.

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.

Parked at Mile Oak farm (which provided some lovely refreshments on my return!) for a lovely walk in the sunshine along the ROWs. Trig is in an area of gorse but if you approach in the right direction it's next to a path so no need to get stabbed! Or you could ignore this advice and do what I did and head through an overgrown path in the gorse and get scratched to pieces!

Spotted spire on the horizon and checked GPSr, really should have been heading to Eastbourne in a straight line but couldn’t resist stopping when I read Jon Glew’s log as I can’t resist a 1GL bolt! Met a church bell ringer while searching for the bolt, she informed me of the marks made by people sharpening swords for a war possibly as far back as the Boer War! She wasn’t aware of the bolt and was really pleased when we found it.

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

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. Then a short but boggy walk to the FBM at the edge of a clearing near the quarry, felt an odd kind of place but it was late and starting to get very dark.

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'.

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. Lovely blue skies all the way there and back, blessed.

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

Parked at waterfall car park to the south then followed forest tracks towards Loch Garbad where I 'enjoyed myself' nearly falling in the loch getting a geocache down a slippy bank in a 'cliff face'. 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.

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.

Mr TJR parked at the barn opposite the track up to the trig, I then climbed the gate and kept a close eye on the building due to the 'beware bull, sign on the gate . There was lots evidence of livestock in the grounds of the wartime buildings but none about today, trig is on the other side of the fence in the field. Track very muddy in places but an easy walk up, and trig in good condition.

Parked in lay-by and headed into quarry and then took a wee track off towards the cairn and the pampas grass as I presumed this was the high point and the trig. However the trig was another 80m from this point. Easy bag, boggy and holey in place, so beware.

Not an easy one to bag. Parked at farm, over 2 gates which surrounded a herd of cows up hill through a number of Orkney gates, one of which hadn't been opened for some time and required me having to grab the cord with my teeth to pull it through and then an awkward corner arrangement of 4 strand barbed wire and a pile of stones. Once at the trig you had the joy of the return journey and the cows preparing themselves to greet you as you came down the hill. Last two gates climbed pretty quickly lol!

Walked up past ruined cottage and followed fence line. Once within 10m of trig the fun started, trig in cow field with electric and two barbed wire fence in between. Tested electric fence ouchies it was on. Down hill to gate, metal and Orkney gate (fence posts tied together with barbed wire and tensioned to posts by either rope or worse a loop of barbed wire). Opened Orkney gate, climbed other gate and made my way up to trig point. It was surrounded by a muddy deep swamp. Only way to hug it without a mud bath was to traverse along barbed wire fence holding on and lending backwards, not easy! Back via same route.

Bagged as YSM0760 West Down Beacon. As per Mr U2's log, trying to say time and distance we made this a total nightmare. Parked outside caravan park and then entered. Walked through caravan park, went over bushes and through trees to enter a field. Walked along side then through hedgerow and down steep brambley bank and on to proper track. 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. A bit of an epic this one was. #4 day#3 - Epic for all the wrong reasons! Total day#2 #11 Total day#1 #13

Brought back some good and bad memories of my time here, funny how life turns out, I thought Southampton was 'by the sea' until I lived here, the docks don't have much of a beach but there are beaches pretty close I suppose.

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

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).

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!

Once this house is finished I suspect it will be part of the grounds and will require permission from the owner to bag.

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.

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.

Parked just beyond Forestry Commission sign and walked back in the woods along a wee path towards a bench, then spotted GerryU2's wall which headed up hill in the correct direction for the trig. Followed this all the way up, took roughly 30 minutes, only 300m but steep and you needed lots of rests!

Pretty much followed the same route as Aqueously90. Parked at the Slochd Mhor lodge, then walked past Insharn and around the bottom of Carn an Ailean. When we were more or less directly SW of the trig, we started cutting up the hill. It was a bit of a slog, but we made it there in the end. Trig is a Vanessa-type pillar, with a significant cairn a few metres to the NE. Great views of the Cairngorms and surrounding area. Took a more direct route back down towards the ruined cottage - 3.5 hours round trip on a glorious sunny day ;-)

Had to visit Inverness for Mr TJR to get his bike serviced, so decided to bag this trig. Took the very boggy track from Lady Cairn most of the way up. Mrs TJR took a more direct route up for the last 300m and Mr TJR carried on the track. Fantastic 360 degree views from the top. Took Mrs TJR an age up and down due to being a very tired trig bagging Ted from the previous two weekends escapades. Charlie got totally covered in mud at some points, so be prepared!

Back tracked to about 100m before the trigpoint and headed to fallen wall and up to trigpoint, took a track back that skirted Quarry and ended up back on the track I started on.

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

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!

So glad he did as I had a wee accident and fell on a slippy floor in the kitchen on Thursday night and couldn't bend my right knee to change gear, which meant Mr U2 had to drive all day! Great wee starter up the steep steps to the Trigpoint. Path and steps very dry today. Trig in a bit of a sorry state.

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.

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!

YSM448 Strathfinella Hill T4 D2 - Terrain high due to length of walk and the snow. First part of the track was well trodden and relatively easy, second second quite snowy but still well trodden, 3rd section very snowy and virgin snow. It took an age to walk the last 600m or so took what seemed like for ever. Trig is in a clear fire break just to the left. Good to finally have this one in the bag.

Bagged as YSM137 Trusta D3/T3 - Hoping for an easy start to the day but nae such luck. 1:25k map nothing like the reality on the ground and path marked as going straight to trig from main track doesn't exist. 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.

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'

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.

Mr TJR called this one Catnip hill due to a nearby hill's name! We parked at the water plant and went through the gate into the field. Cows in next field not impressed by humans or dogs and got a bit excited, so Mr TJR kept Charlie at a distance whilst I walked slowly towards the trig. FB facing towards cows and required a jump over the barbed wire fence, so Mr TJR was called in whilst I retreated with wee Charlie.

Drove all the way to the nearby farm with the intention of asking for permission. No one in closest farm and the one next to the trig is uninhabited. So Mr TJR waited whilst Mrs TJR snuck around the back of the building and squeezed through the the gap between the gate and the post to bag the trig in a recently harvestered crop.

In a very sad state this one. Broken in half but flush bracket still clearly visible. You can access when no exercise is on and before 10pm as the barrier is closed. Evidence of horses using the airfield and I'm sure local kids must access the site. Lots of signs about CCTV however as I'd been cleared at the guardhouse I wasn't too concerned.

Bagging Geocache YSM314 Garn Pwllheli My notes said "Nice easy walk from collage CP (52° 53.463'N 4° 25.415'W)" It was a lovely walk but a little steep in places but it was getting late in the day and day 2 of the YOSM adventure in North Wales, if it was the first walk of the day you would probably say "easy"! Great views from the trigpoint on a lovely day.

Having read previous logs we drove up to the farm and the braver of the two of us knocked on the door. (Mr U2 was made for this type of thing the cheeky chappie!). The young lass who answered said yes no bother and on we went over the fence which has a purpose made style and protection for the barbed wire, bagged the trig and came back. When we got back Mrs Farmer came out for a chat and told us all about the surrounding hills and even offered us some lemonade, really lovely lady!

Bagging YSM342 Mynydd Penarfynydd. My notes for this said "Parked just above sewage works on grass tuning area for short walk with good views" Great if you knew where the sewage works were! So we drove down to Penarfynydd farm which was actually only about 150m from the trigpoint and asked the farmer if we could get to the trigpoint from his farm (which did have a ROW through it!). Alas he said no and that we couldn't park as he had livestock? So we drove down the other fork to N52° 48.541' W4° 38.153' and found the elusive sewage works, then it was a short but steepish walk up to the trigpoint.

YSM372 Cefn-Yr-Ogof T2.5 D3 The Hill bagging website said 'Park on wide streets of housing estate at 913778. A tarmac road leads up diagonally to a house and a narrow gate and path to the left continues up through the wood with 2 zig zags and to the top.' So we tried the hoose nearest the top of the hill but he was reluctant to let us park and we'd probably have had to walk through his garden to get into the wood. However after some sweet talking from Mr U2 he let us know about a secret path between two boulders down at 'the green' which went up the hill and along to the trig. So we took this (N53° 16.747' W3° 37.918'). Took a man path in one section which was very steep but direct otherwise relatively painless.

Spotted this on the map whilst passing and thought it didn't look too bad, read a log that said "short walk". So I convinced Mr U2 to go off list and try to bag it. We headed in from the road on the SE. Not great, a fence to climb over or a fence hammock to sort of fall on and over, a steep climb up to then be faced with another worse fence. Mr U2 got over it and even bagged a few Pokemon! We drove past it from another direction and a I saw an easier route so logging as "slightly damaged" as I could easily have hugged it from the other direction!

Walked up the path to the right of the recycling centre and then round the back of the water treatment works. Unfortunately the trig and flush bracket was on the other side of the fence. After some time pondering I managed to get over it and then went back to the car via the gate on the left hand side of the recycling centre which I didn't find any easier than the fence as it was at a weird angle.

Parked on the verge by the wheelie bins for Auchnahannet farm and walked up the track. Followed the large track to the mast until about 1km, then took a quad track off to the left which went along in the wrong direction and didn't go up the hill as planned. Then decided to pick my way up through the heather, holes and bog finding the odd 'path' and eventually arrived at the trigpoint. Found this 1km tough in both directions. Luckily the lack of tracks, quad or otherwise meant we didn't see any snares which was lucky as I had Charlie with me. As per previous logs the pillar is in good condition (but the cap is missing), with good views in all directions - especially towards Ben Rinnes, and towards the Cairngorms. Grouse water butt (is that what it is?) close to trigpoint.

Forest track was great but the last section up through the heather in the pouring rain was pretty miserable. One of the dogs looked very tired and cold at the top but I sacrified my fleece wrapped her up and stuck her in the rucksack. To my surprise she was very happy and stayed warm and carried all the way back to the car!

Followed track until it ran out and we were faced with 200m of thick conifers (not so young now).......battled through to the clearing which was tough but doable, to be amazed the clearing was so big! On the way back found a much easier route. Follow track until NN 86142 52257 then head towards the trigpoint, it will open out believe us just trust your bearing.

Epic tick filled journey to bag trig and YSM294 - no shortcuts - just say 'NO' to shortcuts! There is no easy way to get to this, plan A was to park at Kenmore FC carpark and walk along the correct track as far as we could close to the trigpoint and then head up from there........NB Always stick to plan A! Plan B, Mrs TJR spots a carpark half way along the road to Kenmore - let's park here.......might save time... We then spent about 1.5km desperately hoping for a path up to the left towards the trigpoint that never came and decided to head towards the Ice House cache on a man path which started not too bad, it has to be said but rapidly became very steep and covered in fallen trees, rocks and debris, Mr TJR and all the dogs also got covered in ticks due to the undergrowth. After a considerable amount of time and one of the oldest dogs having to be carried we ended up on the path we should have been on from the start with Plan A. After a minor domestic in which Mrs TJR held her hand to her head and said she couldn't possible go on, we carried on, on the Plan A path, headed round to the back of the trigpoint (the smaller path shown on the map which does not continue but stops dead) and up 200m for the final pathless heathery bit to the trigpoint (which if we had followed plan A wouldn't have been too bad). Morale - Stick to Plan A, if there is a path stick to it for as long as you can, even if it is 2km longer than making a Beeline!

High score for this one. On the map it looked easy, not far from ROW, short distance...... Started well, then had an entire herd of luckily friendly cows meet me at the first gate, then spotted the farmer busy mending fences. Carried on and hoped he wouldn't spot me turning off the ROW and up to the gate. He didn't - first gate fine, opened with no issues, then faced 30m before trig with 2 barbed wire fences. Travelling light today so no coat to wrap around as normal and only the first fence was climbable for me, second one required a through the middle attack and I didn't want to get torn to shreds. Only one thing for it as they say in Scotland taps aff, this meant au natural for me as I was really travelling light today! Trig bagged and on the way down spotted the farmer again, who had moved and if I was now honest with myself probably saw the entire taps aff incident. As I passed he smiled and said "howdy my love".......

This was a nightmare, eventually found the correct cul-de-sac to park in to access the field, found a wee path and then headed towards houses, headed into bushes which where surrounded by brambles and knee high nettles so left Charlie with Mum. After 10 minutes of being scratched to pieces I was still 30m from the trigpoint and faced with a hawthorn hedge to battle through. Then I heard a dog barking at me and his owner shouting 'you ok love', explained I was 'lost and looking for the ROW' to which he answered, 'well it won't be in that bush' and looked at me oddly. Once out on the path it was a short distance to the trig which has been encased in cut hawthorn, tools and gardening gloves would now be required to get a full inspection of this trig. On the way back to the dogs I shouted to my Mum to let them off but instead of coming round on the path they headed on my mad bush route, thought I'd lost them both and was so glad to see Charlie when he emerged unscathed I rolled about on the floor with him getting licked.

Looked relatively easy on the map but the landowners have spent a lot of time protecting the copse from access and even the gates had barbed wire on the tops and a lot of it. Decided on access from the canal, over the bridge and up a tractor track to the trig. Mr TJR turned back at the bridge when he saw the GOML sign. More signs near the trig stating 'no access - keep out'. Must be something very special in that copse!

We'd skirted round this 'mountain' to find the parking, we were very quiet, I suspect we were both thinking, 'that looks very steep'...... Once at the parking (Gelli Farm) Mr U2 gave me the blue pill, red pill option, sadly for him I choose the red pill which meant we were going up the hill. There are no words to describe it but we took a direct route and eventually arrived at the trigpoint, definitely the hardest of the trip so far and nearing the top of the list of all the trigs I've done so far!

This wasn't on list but we noticed it on map so made a detour between the two trigs. Spotted the obvious stone but wasn't the OS one. Hunted about a bit then spotted the edge of the block pretty close and slightly uphill to the other stone. Put a branch beside it and a wee stone on top. Good views. Well done Mr U2 for spotting this.

Had read the previous logs for this but still struggled. If you head up the main track and turn right (SS 94564 94124) along the edge of the forest you will come to a fire break on the left (SS 94698 93939). Take this track and keep going until you see a small track off to the left (SS 94959 94033), it leads straight to the trig point. It's like a Narnia path with the trig shining at the end, just perfect! Trig is damaged and a tad crumbly in places.

Bagging YSM207 Oxwich Terrain 5 (well it had been a long day and the route we took had a million steps and it was dark) Difficulty 1 After a long long day caching and trig and YOSM bagging, we'd frankly had enough. However a list is a list and you have to tick em off. Mr U2 spotted some steps on his map.me app and we headed for them. We'd started at dusk and somehow left the torches in the car so had to survive with iphones and GPSrs. After getting to the top of the steps it was a quick find but blimey were they a killer!

Didn't like the look of the bible centre of the wee entrance opposite the trig so ended up parking down the road a fair bit and walking back up. I then decided to head up the track from the Greenock Road and follow the field boundary, not realising the trig was on the other side of the hawthorne hedge! Managed to get through somehow, great mix of hawthorne and barbed wire and then go to the trig. The excitement went on as more hawthorne and I suffered an injury!
