My Corbett #86, Rosie's 85th. On the basis of weather forecasts a week earlier, I almost cancelled this trip thinking there was no point in driving all this way...a truly fabulous day, cold and windy on the top but amazing air clarity and bright sunshine. The views from this hill are simply stunning, in the past 3 days we've worked our way up the A838 Ben Hee, Ben Leoid then this and the other two don't compare either as viewpoints or hill walks. Would add that its well worth adding the slight detour along the east ridge to Carn Dearg, amazing views of Hope and Loyal. What a great day!

My Corbett #84, Rosie’s 83rd. From West Merkland, cloudless start to the day, but cloud descended to about 850m as we reached...860m! But a bit of patience at the summit and the cloud broke, and the views, maybe not as spectacular as they might have been an hour earlier, were certainly worth the effort to reach the top.

OH MY STARS what a fantastic place this is. I've never scored a < 100m TP a ten out of ten...until today. Also it was Rosie's 300th Trig Point, which I had meant to save for Beinn Spionnaidh, so this was a bit of a mis-calculation, but who cares? This TP will live long in the memory.

First day of proper holiday this year, just me and the dog in the far north. Added Canisp to our Corbett tally in the morning, though that hill doesn’t have a TP so we bagged this wee hill to complete a very satisfactory start to our break. Good views as you’d expect in Assynt, parked at the foot of the FC track and followed it to its high point at a new looking radio mast before an initially steep slog up through deep, thick, wet vegetation. I wasn't going to recommend this route, however we returned on a more direct SW route along the side of the fence to where that cuts up the hill away from the track. I would NOT like to go up the hill that way! For a sub 300m hill, it's a boggy, tussocky little horror!

Plenty of route options to reach this TP, all of them looked to be good approaches, we chose the walk over Tunstall Reservoir dam as being the most unusual, it’s an impressive piece of engineering. Then up though an ancient woodland before heading E up a rough track then at the ridge of the hill turning S along a broad path across the moor. Extensive views in most directions. The TP is sat in a sea of heather, if I could make one recommendation it would be to come here in August when the heather is in full bloom, it must look amazing then.

A bit trickier to get to than anticipated, due to the amount of electric fences to be negotiated. All 3 of us got a zap each!

No Rosie with me. What a wonderful name, and a wonderful spot. I did indeed have an idle stop here, meandering back home north in no particular hurry. Not a cloud in the sky, birdsong filling the air, easy to find on a dyke running alongside a river flanked with willow trees. I was sure that among this sylvan charm Toad, Ratty and Mole were keeping a watchful eye on me. Proof that a TP doesn’t have to be on top of a big hill to be in a stunning location.

No Rosie today, but couldn’t let such a fantastic day go by without bagging at least one TP. Short diversion off the A46 and an easy stroll up Long Lane in Hickling along a footpath and a couple of fields. Great views of south Notts. As a matter of debate, I wouldn't call this TP 'Damaged', the pillar itself is in good condition, its just the ground around the base that has been damaged, leaving the pillar tilting. If it were to go over, the TP would still be intact, just 'Toppled'. I've seen plenty of properly 'Damaged' TPs, and this isn't one of them!

08/09/19 (Second visit) A great weather forecast convinced us that today was the day to revisit DWM, and bag Carlin Tooth into the bargain. Unlike first visit, as we approached Kielder along the Forest Drive the summit of DWM was the only place actually in cloud, however once we'd walked out of the trees and onto the moor the cloud had lifted / burned off and the fantastic views this hill has to offer were resplendent. If it wasn't for all the radar paraphernalia obstructing some of those views I'd have given this a 10/10. 08/11/17 (First Visit) Stunning morning setting off, from Kielder village the masts and golf ball were clearly seen...after emerging from the forest track onto the moorland section of the climb we walked into a bank of freezing fog wich refused to shift. By the time we got to the summit we could hardly see the golf ball from the TP...a significant disappointment!

Route from Corbylinn car park, more or less due W along fine track, steepening up through Traquair Plantation up onto rough pasture. On leaving the plantation follow the wall round as the TP is on the W side of the wall, else cut a corner and go through a gate then turn half R and go through a broken gate just below the TP. Really fantastic views, maybe because the weather was so good and the air clarity really clear, but I think the views are better than from nearby and much higher Three Bretheren. The bench to rest your weary or unfit body on by the wall is worth an extra point BTW...!

Easy walk through the woods from minor road to the N.

15/08/19: Second visit - Driving through Dipton the main A692 road was closed for re-surfacing and the divert took us right past the access to Pontop Pike, so, despite some reservations after my last visit, stopped for a revisit as the weather was bright and clear. The views here could be spectacular, but the radio masts and the scrubby trees hide all that. Such a shame. What was noticeable is the coat of white paint applied since our last visit, which has removed the graffiti of the pseudo-Banksy 'Urban Dog' motif. Have to say I didn't really object to the dog, there's TPs out there with a lot more mindless vandalism inflicted on them than the dog! 05/03/18 - First visit: A couple of days after 'The Beast from the East'. Very snowy drive along Pontop Pike Lane and up to the farm, then short clamber over head high snow drifts to the TP. One other person had been this way before me, and dumped something utterly revolting in the snow. Be wary of the strange and unsavoury toilet habits of the locals around these parts...

My Corbett #81 Rosie's 80th. The SMC Corbetts book describes the route as an anti-clockwise circuit, as do others below. I hadn't checked on this until afterwards - we got to Shean Dhu and headed directly up The Saddling, following a line of grouse butts, then followed the track to the TP and shelter. Its a route I'd definitely recommend. After the disappointment of reaching the summit of Ben Rinnes in clag that lifted after we dropped back down, the afternoon turned out splendid and we couldn't have asked for better conditions for this hill, great views all round, esp N to the now cloud-free top of Ben Rinnes, grrr!

Took counter clockwise route from Fasney Cottage, you can actually walk a long time without seeing a wind turbine - or a tree! You could quite conceivably drive all the way to the TP in a 4x4...For such a remote TP I didn't expect to see anyone else (except perhaps gamekeepers) but 100m from the summit I met a couple coming down on the clockwise circuit. They weren't Trig-bagging, but bagging County Tops, so were delighted that they'd scored a double hit with this one!

Glad this is an easy to access and very pleasant TP to visit!! 30/11/16 14:35 An interesting and fairly obscure corner of Northumberland with excellent views north towards Tosson Hill and Simonside across the Harwood Forest, and extensive views south. The road that leads NNW up past Rothley Shield West has 3 gates across it in quick succession which makes for awkward progress if there's only one of you in the car! The road that leads WNW from Rothley Shield East has no gates and is therefore a much more convenient route to the Greenleighton Quarry car park! The upshot of this visit was I somehow managed to corrupt the photos transferring them from my SD Card to my HD, so another visit is required...

The trick here is to follow the bridlepath out of Edmundbyre until it is bisected by a row of grouse butts, follow these up the hill and they lead directly and easily to the TP (one fence to get over at the very top). Alternatively, from the end of the large and obvious sheep fold take a compass bearing and yomp over the moor realising why 'Ruffside' on the map was renamed 'Roughside' by the OS... Leaden skies couldn’t spoil the fact you can see a mighty long way from here, and good views of County Durham's 'boateraterie' sailing on Derwent Reservoir.

A metal gate leads into a pasture field, and in the top corner of that field is a break in the wall over which the new trees are lined up in parallel lines pointing directly to the Trig Point. With a lot of deer on Dere Street (should have got a photo of at least one of them) all in all this was a very decent walk, spoiled only by the grey skies and drizzly weather.

Fifth and final of the day, and only circular walk. Parked at the Kerr's Port car park and up to the farm, over the stile, across two fields, a short bridle path and up the fort to the TP, well seen all the way up. Very straight forward. Descended along the cliff path to Clauchlands path. The descent seemed remarkably greater than the ascent...felt like I'd stepped into the drawing of a perpetual staircase by MC Ecsher! On a cloudless day the views from here must be breath taking. Clauchland Hill looks pretty forlorn after timber felling, hopefully it will be replanted with a better mix of native species.

Fourth of the day. Followed Arran Trigman's route up to the loch and east along the firebreak to the edge of the field. At this point it seems finding the TP is going to be problematic, however hold your nerve, stick to the advice given and use your innate sense of 'keep going up' and its actually a very simple find in the end.

Second of 5 today. Looked on the map as though it might be a real balls-ache to get to, but the ArranTrigman route below is a winner, following the Mountain Bike Route up to 170m, thereafter it does get wetter underfoot, the going tougher through deeper heather and the gradient a bit steeper (Wetter, Tougher, Steeper - the Holy Trinity of "Ah Bugger"). Great views from the TP. Good fun.

We set off from the track by the Harehope Burn at point 256 in sub-freezing temperature and falling snow. We'd expected this trip to be either 'Winter Wonderland' or a white out, and although we got the latter, there is however something immensely satisfying about successfully navigating a hill in very poor visibility. Given we got no views difficult to score this hill but for the fun it provided in the snow it gets an 8, and a probable revisit in the future!

It's obviously been moved, but remains in good condition (if slightly off being perpendicular...) Shame it’s been moved, it must have commanded superb views before then and before the plantations blocked the views to the north. We approached along the footpath to the west, which is in fact a v muddy track. After three hedges there is a metal gate across the track, but no gate into the next field so followed that directly up to the TP. There was livestock in this field, of the horned variety, which we weren’t aware of until we had pretty much reached the TP. Fortunately they stayed on the far side of the field and ignored me and my canine companions. It was still a very brief visit, quick photo shoot and we scarpered back down the way we came!

On 27/08/18 I did a 'reconnoitre' of this TP, by driving all the way up to it from the South, using the forestry tracks from where the public road along the Butterburn ends and up past Churnsike Lodge. Tramped round the perimeter, found absolutely no way in, as previous two logs had reported...skulked away, hatched a plan...Today I walked in from Bower figuring it would almost be as quick to walk in from the east as to drive all the way round to Gilsland and up, and there was no guarantee this time the tracks at Churnsike would be open anyway. Took hour and a half to walk to Bolts Law. Emptied two rope ladders from my rucksack and clipped them over the gate. Stuffed the dog into my rucksack and over the gate we went! The views from the TP are immense to the south, what a shame this TP is so inaccessible. Given it an 8 score for the views, the inaccessibility and mostly for the tank! If you'd like to visit it, I have secreted the rope ladders away under a large rock to the right of the gate, though I recommend you'll need to take a sturdy carabiner with you, and I'd ask that you put them back where I left them for the next Triggers to use. I'll update this post if I get a call from the Military Police anytime soon! Caused no damage, took nothing but pictures; this had become a showstopper to us 'compleating' all 155 Northumberland TPs, just Camp Hill left to do now. Feeling greatly satisfied!!!

Parked just below the reservoir on the forest track that skirts the south of Kateshaw Hill and followed the forest tracks to Greenside. Failed to take sufficient notice of the advice below, and tried reaching the TP by going up the side of the quarry and following it round. It is, as has been pointed out previously, much simpler to follow a direct line from the Fire-Break following the line of the felled timber, and making a direct assault up the quarry wall, which is steep, crumbling and eroded, but not as overgrown with spruce and larch as any other approach. The TP itself sits in a delightfully tranquil spot, albeit one with no views to speak of.

He did concede that with the bridges gone at either end of the footpath the only way on to it was via the private farmtrack; and that the land I asked to visit, the Settlement and the TRig Point, was Access Land. It was good to get permission though as I had the dog with me. The settlement is impressive, and the views from a relatively low hill are very good indeed.

As I approached the TP a large black grouse was sitting on the skyline right by the TP, would have made a fantastic photo but wrestling the camera out the camera bag while trying to control 2 dogs tied up with clingfilm meant there was zero chance of grabbing that shot before the bird was long gone...first world problems...Really great 360 degree views from here, a lovely spot.

Well no one said this one was going to be easy...Parked at Blakehope Nick and followed fence via Wether Lair to Monkside TP, all very straight forward and easy. Monkside to Greys Pike was a lot more challenging terrain, the heather is much deeper, the spagnum moss more sinky and the tussocks CONSIDERABLY more tussocky! Great views although a tad hazy on a sweltering hot and cloudless day. From the TP we followed a faint path back towards Three Pikes, which petered out above East Kielder farm but it was an easy-ish drop down the line of Fuller Sike between new grown conifers on our right and arboreal carnage on our left. Managed to miss the footbridge but forded the Ridge End Burn and back onto the dusty Forest Drive for a gruelling hour and a half trudge back to start point. All in all though I think it’s a good route for bagging both these TPs, and the route could be easily extended very slightly at the beginning to head E to Berrymoor Edge before setting off for Monkside.

Parked at Blakehope Nick and followed the fence S as previous visit to Berrymoor Edge, at junction of fences turned W not E and followed the fence all the way along the easy going ridge over Wether Lair direct to the summit of Monkside in a little over an hour and a half. Best sticking as close as possible to the fence, easier going than the moorland further from the fence. Any attempts to shorten distances and save time by cutting corners when the fence zig zagged were definitely a false economy. Fabulous day, not a cloud in the sky and a pleasant cooling breeze. Magnificent if a tad hazy views from the TP. Best views of Kielder Water from any TP, makes you realise that despite its enormous size, in the greater scheme of things and relative to Northumberland it’s easily absorbed into the landscape and it’s no big deal!

Canny views mind, (although you can't actually see the reservoir from the TP). Took the firebreak / track halfway between Skyspace and the Obsevatory, which peters out leaving maybe 30m of solid spruce to fight through before reaching the open moorland. And what moorland - really tough, unrelentingly arduous going. The terrain seemed considerably tougher going than getting to The Grun, or White Crags (previous top two in aforementioned chart).

Parked at Butterburn, followed eastward track through Lampert and the bridle path beyond. There are a number of options as to which gate you can take from the bridle path north on to the open moorland, given I had the dog as always took the option with least sheep and lambs. The crags are a bit of fun, and although a Northumbrian TP the best views are W over a very remote and obscure corner of Cumbria.

Parked at Gidside, v friendly lady farmer there gave some advice, said firebreak through trees was probably impassable and to stick to the fellside. The fellside climbs SW then swings round to virtually due N into Swan Shank, where there is a large stile that would lead you W up to Viewie Knowe, however we kept N along a rather overgrown ride alongside a tumbled down wall and wire fence. After about 150m where the fence ends there is another much broader and very obvious ride that heads W till it merges into a track, the track rises W to summit where a rather concealed ride zig-zags round on to Rowantree Crag and the TP. TP has obvious crack all the way round its middle. Great views 180 degrees S. On returning, the top end of the ROW through the woods is obvious by the stile at Swan Shank. We went in, fine for 300m...don't bother! Stick to the fellside!!

Having read all the previous logs (several times) I'd decided to leave myself a full day to do this one as I don't have GPS and it was obviously going to be a proper challenge. So it is with a slight sense of disappointment to report this was among the more straight forward TP's I've bagged! Accidently-on-purpose missed the FC sign by the bridge at Waterhead over the Tarset Burn that says "No Unauthorised Vehicles" and drove up past Highfield Farm and up to Highfield Hope, cutting out at least 30 minutes of forest track trudge, and parked at the junction with a short dead end track that heads off NNE. The forest has been cleared back all the way up to the 300m contour, and well cleared too - no piles of brash or uprooted stumps to fight through, just followed a new looking wire fence N then NNW to where it turns back SW, walked W about 100m then NNW straight up the very visible and clear firebreak directly to the TP at the top. On the return journey there are decent views S and SE down the firebreak, still no views from the TP itself. The Dodd was, ahem, a doodle!

The views from the top of Loaf Hill NE to the Cheviots was stunning, and then views opened up SE over Redesdale. From the gate onto Access Land at the top of the firebreak there are extensive views SW over a vast tract of very remote and inhospitable land.

Parked at the junction of the minor track that forks off the Forest Drive just W of Blackblakehope (the barrier being down and padlocked) and followed the track to the point where it swings E and Ellis Crag comes into view. There are 2 possible routes here - the first a track that starts by crossing a pretty little waterfall and heads NW towards Bittlestonegate Cairn; the alternative is a firebreak about 50 yards further along the track that leads NNE directly towards Ellis Crag. Do NOT go for the first option - the track ends long before the trees do, and they get progressively denser, then there's a tough yomp across very rough moor before ascending up onto the crags. The firebreak option starts off boggy but gets progressively easier. The wall of rock in front of you looks a formidable obstacle but is easily circumvented, although the final ascent is a steep little scramble. The TP sits in a lofty position with commanding views from N to SW through E. A fine and worthwhile TP to bag!

Parked on the B6306 a couple of miles north of Blanchland where it crosses the Acton Burn (handy for washing dirty dogs in at the end of the walk) and followed the gently rising track west over Blanchland Moor directly to the TP. Fantastic 360 degree views, the real reward is the walk back with the views east to the Derwent Reservoir and south to the hills of County Durham.

Thought this might be a tricky one but route finding and locating the TP itself was unexpectedly straight-forward. The deer fence at Hospital Gate is serving it’s purpose as we distrurbed a large doe who ran off on the right side of the fence; we used the gates in and out of this plantation and a good path between them. At the top gate that comes out by the track the views back eastward are excellent, a extensive panorama NE to SW. The track loops round the TP and the easiest access in is probably from due N of the TP and cut down a drainage ditch about 20m and it’s in a clearer spot on your right. We found it straight away no hassle at all (I appreciate no one likes a smart-ar$e).

Parked at double gate NY 903884 followed forestry track to the mast and turned N up well marked ROW through the plantation. It was so icy cold that sections of the forestry tracks around the mast that might have been quagmire were easily negotiated. The path once clear of where vehicles have churned it up was a delight, with the frost as thick as it was there was a air of 'Narnia' to the woods. Beyond Fellhouse Crags the forest has been felled, however the ROW remains mostly unimpaired by brash. The views N open up, The Cheviots were all crowned with snow and looked amazing. By the time we reached the TP there was not a cloud in the sky, the sun was starting to set and the views were stunning.

Found easily on second attempt. First attempt, a couple of weeks earlier, had been an impromptu and un-researched stop off that resulted in 30 minutes of futile thrashing about in the deepening gloom of a dark November late afternoon. Today however, armed with all the info below, no problems at all. If I can add anything helpful, then it is this - from the barrier gate I counted 108 paces along the track to the 'V' shaped dead tree (as shown in the photos). Keep to the right of the "heathery ride", don't get tempted off to the left if it starts to look overgrown, and finally you have to negotate 3 wind fall trunks to reach the stone circle. With this information, Fourlaws TP is possibly easier to locate than Shepherdskirk Hill.

Sorry to cast aspirsions on the comments below by caroleengle, but the road from the south that runs N from Sundaysight really ISN'T all that bad, 4x4 or otherwise (certainly no worse than the road that leads up to Coldtown Beacon for example)...There is a gate due W of the TP along this road, on the N side of the gate is a good parking spot where a PROW leads off NW towards Highgreen Manor (an amazing looking building if you get to drive back S past that). From here just follow the fence line on its N side directly up the hillside due E, just before the brow of the hill is reached there is a wooden gate in the fence after which the new-ish pigwire becomes rusty barbed wire. Cross S over the gate and then head SE through the heather to the TP, which offers great 360 views.

Parked at the West Wood Forestry Commission car park and followed signed footpath to the Drakestone. The walk up through the woods to the Drake stone is delightful. The Drakestone is a massive lump of rock carved and sculpted by elemental forces, and then, sadly and inevitably, graffitted and defaced by morons. From the Drakestone a tough little yomp south over a couple of rocky ridges and through deep heather eventually leads to the TP on top of Cold Law. The views in all directions are terrific, from the North Sea coast in the east to who knows how far to the south west. The Cheviots to the North, the whole of the Otterburn Ranges to the west with the Keilder Observatory on the skyline in the far distance. One of the best view points in all of Northumberland IMHO... A hairline crack on the NW face of the TP is just starting to open up...

Parked to the south east where the Pennine Way meets the Kellah Burn and followed the Pennine Way north to the TP. By a considerable margin this is by far the wettest, boggiest walk I have ever undertaken. If I am ever asked the question in a general knowledge quiz 'what is the longest man-made waterway in the UK' I will not answer 'the Grand Union Canal' but 'The Pennine Way'. At least this walk has put me off even thinking about doing that challenge FOR GOOD.

I'd been putting off doing this one as reading the reports below made it seem a bit of a tricky one, guess I was waiting for the Trig Point fairy to magic it easier...Parked up the track opposite Ovenstone Plantaion off the B6341 and followed way-marked ROW NW then NE down through a broken gate and stile to across the Keenshaw Burn over a footbridge and up out of the plantation at another gate. There are Marker Posts for the ROW up The Long Chirn but the path has disappeared into deep bracken, heather and myrtle. After the 4th marker post a good path appears, and the route to Woodhouses is straight forward, but that first section is a definite slog! Then followed round the side of the Dues Hill plantation in a clockwise direction where there is a decent path up the steep hillside close to the fence, and round to the top, going over a couple of low fences to get into the plantation to the TP summit. As mentioned below, the TP itself does not afford any of the great views of the Cheviots or the Simonside - Darden Pike ridge that are enjoyed on the walk to the TP.

As it was a 'Non-Firing Day' on the Ranges we headed north from Rochester and parked up along Bellshiel Road and made our way west. It being very late in the day we navigated more by heading directly towards the setting sun, and following a convenient ATV track, which was a mistake as the sun was setting in the north west and not in the WSW direction we needed to head - consequently we ended up much closer to Lamb Crag a good distance north from where we wanted to be. Was very surprised to see in the distance another walker out on the ridge at that time of night (by now it was almost 9pm Sunday evening), and then another, and then a dozen more...it was a platoon of 'our boys' out on an exercise! Beautiful evening, fantastic sunset, great vantage point and good exercise over rough ground - perfect end to the weekend.

From Carter Bar followed the track that traverses gently round Carter Pike and Buzzard Crags to the old quarry works. From the end of the track a footpath is shown on the map but this path is purely notional, there is nothing but miles of rough, desolate and mostly featureless moorland. Heading south east the TP is visible on the skyline, and once it disappears back below the horizon the crags themselves give a good marker to head towards. It's hard going over rough heather, peat hags, shite dunes and bogs. The effort is somewhat rewarded with excellent views north east towards the Cheviots and to the south west the Kielder Observatory is distinct on the horizon. But you are mostly looking at an interminal expanse of heather... Most impressive was the wildlife seen en route - deer, a large herd of feral goats, and best of all a huge buzzard being mobbed by crows - actually on Buzzard Crag!

Would suggest that attempting to park on or below the blind summit that the TP sits on along the B6318 is pretty foolhardy, the road is not only quite busy but very fast.

This time approached as described by paulxtr below. I've been considering an objective methodology for the ratings score out of 10 we give TPs - if every TP starts with a potential score of 10/10 then - less than 500m high = minus 1 point and if less than 100m high = minus 2 points; no views for 180 degrees or more = minus 1 point; uninteresting approach = minus 1 point; no interesting geographical features in the vicinity = minus 1 point; no interesting historic antiquities in the vicinity = minus 1 point; stuck in a hedge = minus 1 point...therefore Cheeveley gets 3/10 and that still feels generous....

Climbed the route as described below from the phone box at Castle Nook and up over Great Heaplaw and Black Hill, a fairly strenuous yomp over rough moorland. By the time we reached the grouse butts across Black Hill my calf muscles were popping like crazy, and by the time we'd got to the top it felt like we'd climbed a proper hillwalker's hill. However, for anyone not wishing to submit themselves to a two hour schlepp I'd suggest a better route of ascent would be the route we descended the hill by. An alternative start point is the landrover track about 500m north of the phonebox, by some riding stables at Kirkhaugh. Car parking here is admittedly scarse, though quite possible to park at the phone box and walk up to this point. After about 300m along the track an obvious ATV track leads round the northern edge of Great Heaplaw and then almost to the top of the hill. The third highest point in the county of Northumberland, it provides a glorious 360 panorama of the North Pennines, and whichever route of ascent you choose, keep it for a clear day because your efforts will be amply rewarded!

Not only is it not dog friendly, it's not really people friendly either. Returning to Milfield to bag Whitton Hill I was struck how, like the local pub, I've visited loads of TPs but this one is one of the worst I've ever been to! Stuck in a scruffy little barbed wire protected coppice full of stinging nettles with no real views, overshadowed by the more impressive hills of Houseden Hill to the SW and Flodden Hill to the NW, I'd have scored this even lower if it wasn't for the fact we flushed out a Roe Deer as we made our way round the field edge, and it was a gloriously sunny day.

After walking from Melkington to Cramondhill along the Muggers Loan we retraced our steps then carried on the short distance to New Heaton. The map shows the track cutting directly east to the corner of the plantation New Hearton TP is situated in - however the track skirts NE round the side of the hill following the Oxdean Burn before ascending SSE up the field edge to the plantation. Not realising this we made a direct line for the TP across the (trackless) field but returned following the track. The New Heaton TP should offer much the same view as Cramondhill, they being so close together; however being a wee bit higher potentially should offer a better view, but being in a plantation actual has a more limited view. Curious as to why these two TPs are so closely located.

If you walk till you are level east of the TP or south of it the fence becomes pig wire only and is so slack it is very easily crossed to reach the TP.

The walk across the moor looks like it could be hard going but some ATV tracks virtually from the stile at point 509 means this is a very easy TP to reach. Extensive views in all directions, including the eastern hills of the Lake District. Just to the immediate North West is a great view of the Roman encampment of Chew Green.

My Corbett #76, Rosie's 75th. (Also Rosie's 100th Trig Point) So the plan was - Having climbed two of the three Carn Dearg's up Glen Roy on Saturday, we drove round to Dalnacardoch on the A9 where we left the car, and spent the evening walking N to Sronphadruig Lodge were we set up camp in the twilight. The Sunday was to be a round of 3 Corbetts, Leathad An Taobhain, Carn Dearg Mor and Meallach Mhor, retuning to the tent to do An Dun and A'Chaoirnich on the Monday. Ho hum, I'd like to see Bear Grylls do that...in the end we did Leathad An Taobhain, got completely drenched and returned to the tent soaked and shattered. A miserable retreat south was all that followed the following morning...

Parked by the wonderfully named Needless Hall Moor and followed bridal track ROW due south through 4 gates before turning W to follow a fence up to a dry stone wall and followed that S to a gate that leads directly into the field with the TP in it. A bright and blustery day with good visibility although this is an unassuming TP with no views of any real note, the Simonside Hills to the NW being the only real point of interest.

Walked in from the bottom of the road sign-posted to Harwood and followed the St Oswald's Way path through the hamlet of Harwood - it would save 5 minutes walk there and back to drive up and park in Harwood itself. After about 400m the StOW track crosses another track and then about another 300m beyond on the left is a Forestry Commission 'Ride' which we ventured up. The going was soft in places and the avenue of larch trees fairly interminable but the otherwise featureless ride was punctuated with 'Furlong' Marker posts - at the 7 Furlong marker you come out at another main track. Turn right and after 100m there is a T junction of tracks, turn sharp left back on yourself and cross a small wooden footbridge and a stile into a broad firebreak through the forest. There is a feint path through the rough and in places wet firebreak which gradually ascends to the marker stone that was once Manside Cross, turning left to follow the fence up over an area of old earthworks the TP is easily found. Sadly it offers no views but larch trees in all directions! There is a decent view W from Manside Cross, and the return down the firebreak offers good views of Coatyards and Greenleighton TPs. Once back at the stile we continued E along the main track which after about 300m turns S back to Harwood, and the views S between the trees on this track before you start to descend are extensive. A good walk but the lack of any views from the TP itself was a bit of a disappointment.

Parked at Cragend and followed footpath through farm where very helpful landowner advised on route. Followed hedge to footbridge over burn, then kept left through wood to meet wall and followed that up through the wood to a broken stile and then kept on over another stile and through a gate following ROW towards Longframlington. The TP is easily spotted in a field to the right of the ROW which requires a jump over a barbed wire fence to reach. Good views west to Simonside.

Steeper, rougher section to hill top, easier to take a zig-zag traverse on a rough track NE then NW and rejoin the wall where it turns left and the TP is easily seen about 20m further along the wall (and after the end of the pigwire & barbed wire fence). This whole area is succumbing to a major infestation of Rhoddedendrum Ponticum, a dreadful non-native invasive weed.

Drove up the track from Wooler that passes by the football and cricket pitches to a small car park where another track comes down from the odd shaped radio mast (it looks like someone started to build a space rocket but gave up). Followed a green lane SE past Coldmartin Loughs and a plantation of silver birch trees to a junction of 4 tracks and a footpath, turned half left then half left again to follow another green lane up to a right turn where the TP is very obvious beyond a barbed wire fence, however there is a kissing gate through the fence allowing access to the TP. A path not shown on the OS Explorer heads W from the TP to another gate and then meanders down to the compound around the radio mast, before dropping back down to the car park.

Third attempt to reach this TP, on two occassions in the autumn the field with the TP in it had yet to be harvested. Must have been the last wheat field in Northumberland to be harvested! Not sure if the fact that the foundations of the TP have been completely undercut and the TP sits proud in the field on its exposed base means it is 'Slightly Damaged' but it remains upright and with no obvious cracks or damage to the main body of the pillar. We followed the signposted footpath to the ENE of the TP parking by the gate just before the first of the few houses on Whittingham Lane and headed along the field edge WSW. The first gate is very stiff to open easier to use the stile, over another stile at the second gate, the third gate is secured with barbed wire but the dog managed to negotiate the stile cleverly, then at the top of the third field where the footpath veers half left there is another stile which gives you the opportunity to hop over the fence into the field with the TP in on your left rather than go directly over the stile to follow the footpath. Superb views north to the Cheviots, particularly Hedgehope. Scanning east Titlington Pike, Ross Castle, Brizlee and Freemanshill all well seen. Views to the south go no further than Thrunton Crag and woods.

Walked up to the Golf Club and followed the ROW to the top of the golf course and through a gate, short walk along a good path to the left leads up to a stile from where the TP is visible. Excellent views in all directions, slightly disorientating as you'd expect the view of the sea to be to the east, however the only view of the sea is looking directly north, towards Berwick on Tweed. Returning to the top of the golf course we turned left and walked a short distance towards the Shepherd's House, just before it is a path that skirts NW round the ancient settlement before dropping down to Doddington, and a brisk walk back along the Golf Club road to our starting point.

Parked by track leading to Coatyards Farm, there are 2 gates opposite - the left hand one goes directly into the field that the TP is in, the right hand gate is the start of a ROW that leads past the TP but on the wrong side of 2 barbed wire fences and a recently re-planted hawthorn hedge. So taking this option meant walking all the way to the end of this field along the ROW where there is a reasonable opportunity to get over / past the barbed wire and into the upper field and then back and across to the TP. If I'd have known this to begin with I'd have ignored the ROW and just gone through the left hand gate and directly to the TP.

We parked up on the minor road south of the TP and walked the mile or so up the gated road that leads north up to the RAF compound and the Early Warning Station. This was the first TP I've taken the girls and both dogs to. There are some impressive crags on the right with a natural sandstone archway as you get close to the top, O had a fine time scrambling around on these before we reached the gate and rang the bell and waited a minute or so before a very smartly uniformed, friendly and helpful RAF person let us in and escorted us through the compound to the TP. He seemed totally nonplussed that a family with two dogs would want to visit the TP but showed quite an interest in what we were doing. The views south are totally blocked by the Hulme Park wall (quite a feat of engineering in itself if you realise how long it is), and other views are slightly obscured by the various buildings and paraphanalia of the EWS compound, but that just serves to make this a pretty interesting TP in its own right.

Originally planned to spend the afternoon doing this, Belford Crags and Dod Law but the mornings sunshine & showers gave way to persistant rain so took note of Off Piste's comment "No view" and figured the afternoon could be sacrificed bagging just this one. In the event its a more interesting hill than many - we came across two climbers on the Dues Heugh crags one teaching the other how to free climb the overhangs, fascinating to watch. Then we walked along the track to the 'Bungalow' - in reality I believe probably a hunting lodge - which has a spectacular view point from its porch south west over the Cheviots. Finding the TP itself proved difficult in the thick and often inpenetrable woodland but eventually it was located, and, just for the sake of clarity - No view!

A short diversion west at about 360m aiming for a rocky knoll and after crossing a pretty rubbish wire fence the TP is situated in a grand airy location.

21/07/16 Second Visit: Same route vas previous visit - an agreeable 2.5 hour stroll from Ilderton along the National Cycleway north west to Middleton, then south west to Middleton Dean, south over Middleton Moor to The Dod finally east over HH. Excellent views all round, the view west of Dunsmoor Hill is going to take a while to recover from the extensive felling of Threestoneburn Wood. 07/12/15: First Visit - This was the 'epiphany' moment where I realised I tended to plot random walks so they took in Trig Point pillars, and determined to research more about them...and came across this Web Site! Fortunately on this visit I took some decent photos, and thought it would be interesting to take a photo of each of the compass points of every other Trig Point.

Walked north up the lane sign posted to White House Folly and at the brow of the rise is an obvious parking / passing spot on the right, and from here leads a faint track east up through the wood. At the top of this wood is a very swampy area (wellies essential!) bear north east towards a wooden gate at an enclosure halfway up the hillside. From there we followed the plantation edge east then north and the pillar was soon obvious (albeit becoming increasingly overgrown). The track shown on larger scale maps through the spruce plantation has completely disappeared. WARNING FOR DOG WALKERS - along the Public Bridleway that runs parallel to the road (which is extremely overgrown anyway) are a series of wire traps and nooses, one of which caught Rosie round the neck - I think was more paniced than she was, but be very careful around these woods if you have a dog with you.

My Corbett #56, Rosie's 55th. In retrospect, wondering what on earth possessed me to drag the dog up here in these conditions...made a rising traverse up from the end of the woods of Kirkton Glen till I hit what the thought was the summit, and in poor visibility I searched in vain for the TP, and gave up, and headed south dropping altitude...until the hill started to rise again...I'd initially hit the summit of Cam Chreag. Discovering the TP on the summit I'd been aiming for was one of my most satisfying moments of all my mountain bagging exploits in Scotland! Added to which, I managed to take what I think is the best photo of any TP I've ever taken...

The weather was terrible, the Old Forge had been taken over by a truly appalling new owner and ruined, and any friends I knew on the Pennisula had either gone away or left for good. Over a number of years I'd gazed up at Beinn Bhuidhe from Long Beach and plotted various routes of ascent up it, in the event we just powered up a stupidly steep and difficult direct assault on Sgurr nam Feadan which left us rather knackered and still with 250m more ascent to climb to reach to summit. All views were lost to the clag after 600m. Researching this log I discovered some good pictures of the TP I'd forgotten about, however I also remember getting drenched on the way back down Gleann Meadail, followed by another miserable evening in the sad and unfriendly Old Forge.

My Corbett #8 First trip wild camping with Rosie. The evening before we'd climbed to the top of the Corbett Monamenach and pitched camp on the summit, woke up very early (and somewhat chilly) and packed up and drove down Glen Shee to Braemar for breakfast and a quick climb up Morrone. An easy climb, fabulous weather and tremendous 360 views (apart from the radio mast, 'obvs')

My Corbett #5, Rosie's first. 3 of my previous 4 Corbetts were either demoted Munros or Corbetts crossed as a necessity to reach a Munro, only Sgurr Coire Choinnichean in Knoydart had been climbed 'just because'. Having completed the Munros in 2012, and taken over a year off from Mountain-bagging in Scotland, I was longing for more adventures like the Munros had presented. At the end of 2013 I acquired Rosie, sort of a rescue dog, and without necessarily getting her consent, I decided we would completed the Corbetts together. Starting with, most appropriately, 'Hill of the Dog'. Paddy Kane and a mate of his came along for the day, Paddy would make the final summit but his super-tough army pal did not! Glad we chose this route, and finding that we'd stopped to photograph the TP was a bit of a surprise as I researched back through my photo archives!

Conditions not quiet as bad as first climb, but still not good enough to see any views. Followed exactly same route as first ascent.

Ascended N up Leacann Dubh then E past the ski-ing paraphernalia, before going on to bag Creag Leacach. Tough going in thick, deep, wet snow! With the TP covered in snow & ice on both occasions it's hard to say whether its condition is Good, Damaged or Slightly Damaged, but there appears to be a full range of opinion amongst the other reports here!

My Munro #283 - My final Munro, and the day of my 50th Birthday. No co-incidence! This day had been meticulously planned for about 18 months, and only the weather let us down :-( I had booked the whole of the Kinlochewe Hotel for the weekend, and invited 40 friends along. Guests came from all corners of the UK, Italy, Greece, Sweden, Switzerland and even one from Australia. 25 of the 40 chose to climb Slioch with me on the day, including "Sealf4" whose previous ascents of Slioch you will find a few entries below this one. As the only person to have climbed this hill before in a large group of very mixed abilities, I asked Sealf4 to be Walk Leader for the day, while I remained with the slower members of the group at the back of the pack. Some of the fitter types got to the summit plateaux long before the rest, and in the thick clag assumed the TP to be the top. However with everyone gathered at the TP as I arrived with the last member of the group, Sealf4 announced that we were not at the summit, and we had several hundred metres still to go...so no photos were taken of the TP. Of all the Pillars NOT to have photographed...! Bugger!

Cycled from Dalwhinnie to the hut on the track between Ben Alder Lodge and Loch Pattack, then walked up to and ascended via the the Long Leachas. Brilliant scramble, never technical but a little exposed in places. Wished I'd known that it is more than possible to continue on bike to Culra, would have probably shortened the day by a couple of hours. Fantastic views from the top, continued on to Bhienn Bheoil. Sense of achievement at the end of the day meant sampling every Single Malt in the bar that evening was well earned, and as the weather the next day was bloody awful I had a full day to sleep off the hang-over!!

Set off up Ben Starav on a stunningly beautiful evening, glorious sunset, set up camp on a nice flat patch about 100m below the summit. Woke up to a blizzard and 2" of snow on the tent. The short climb to the summit was horrendous, I took one photo of the summit cairn (and can find no trace to the TP stump in that picture) before a swift descent down and across to Beinn nan Aighenan by which time the weather had relented quiet a lot. Over the next 2 days I walked East then North bagging a further 7 Munros before dropping down to the car and finally collecting the bike. I'm sure Ben Starav should score a '10' but deducted a point as I never enjoyed the 360 degree views from the very summit!

On a John Muir work party some weeks earlier I'd been going on about the badly eroded path up Carn Laith (TP1963) and a wiser head than mine observed the hills would be better off "if people walked them like goats rather than like sheep" - i.e. find your own route, don't stick to the same path as everyone else. I was totally bitten by the wild camping bug, loved being 'a goat' and not a sheep - wherever possible it's been a philosophy I'd tried to adhere to ever since...

The weather was awful for the first 4 Munros but cleared up to something pretty decent by the time I'd come down from Lawers and approached An Stuc. My 2 mates did the 'Tourist Route' of Bheinn Ghlas and Lawers, and as I got to the summit of Beinn Ghlas from Meall Corranaich I met them on their way back.

My Munro #117 Climbed with 'Sealf4', Andy Bolgar & about 15 other Knoydart Forestry Trust & John Muir Trust work party organisers and volunteers. Spent 2 weeks in June 2009 helping on a JMT work party in Knoydart part of the 10th anniversary of the land buy-out and the final push to rid Inverie and surrounding woodlands of the wretched invasive Rhododendron Ponticum that choked the area. Tough days labouring in the woods followed by long nights in the Old Forge. One evening the head of the Knoydart Forest Trust said "who fancies watching the sun rise from the top of Ladhar Bheinn?" No one need to be asked twice and about 18 of us piled into a couple of the KFT's rust bucket trucks and drove out to Gleann na Guiserein setting off up Ladhar Bheinn at about 10.30 and reaching the summit just before midnight. As myself and another volunteer Andy had come to Knoydart with the hope of completing its 3 Munros at some point during our visit we left the rest to bivvy down for the night to watch the sunrise over the Western Isles and we cracked on to complete Luinne Bheinn and Meall Buidhe, returning to the Long Beach Bunk House about 9am the next day. To this day probably the most extraordinary adventure of my life. Could not have done it without the support and help of Andy, I nearly threw the towel in on the ascent of Luinne Bheiin, he nearly quit on the way up Meall Buidhe. Absolutely bloody amazing experience. Sadly I subsequently lost the pictures of the Ladhar Bheinn TP after a hard drive failure, I can only offer the attached picture taken about 5 minutes before we reached the top of this amazing mountain...

This is an 'accidental' Trig Bag! Me and my mate Lee had gone to Scotland for the weekend 'Ground-hopping' football games, and were on our way to Fir Park to watch Partick Thistle...with time to kill before the match, I suggested that as Lee 'collects' Castles as well as Football Grounds Dumbarton would give him a Castle with a view of a football ground. So we spent some time in the castle taking photographs...a decade later and I spot 'Dumbarton Castle' as a Trig Point name, and wondered "might I have visited this Trig Point and photographed it several years before I started seriously collecting Trig Points?" The answer was, yes I did! Lee still collects Castles and Football Grounds, I now find football grounds (and football in general) dreadfully tedious, its Trig Points only for me these days!

In very limited visibility I'd not been so relieved at finding the TP, and on the large, featureless summit plateau even more relieved that I was able to safely navigate myself back the way I'd come.

Once out on open moorside the climb was mush easier. and eventually a faint path was found that took us to the summit. Being a 'Munro Bag' rather than a 'Trig Bag' I paid no notice of the broken Trig Point at the summit, but was fortunate to have photographed it.

FB Number: 2982   Condition: Slightly damaged   Score: 5/10

Date of walk is approximate, a successful attempt at the Yorkshire 3 Peaks in under 12 hours that we organised as Venture Scouts. Whernside was the first of the three climbed, after a long road slog from our campsite in Horton. Climbed with Dr Mike, Chris East and Dominic Smith, my sister & Dr Mike's sister. Pretty murky on the top as I remember...
