I have been checking my records and I think I visited this TP and it had been removed. I spoke to the land owner who confirmed it had been removed a few years earlier. I then went on to do Bruceton, north of Aylth on the same day. Unfortunately, this was before was set up and I did not really record missing trigs. I have just come down south from a few days in Scotland so it will be a while before I can confirm this but will try to on my next visit.
