Live log from island with 7 other triggers. Full log to follow at home. Mild swell made getting onto island tricky but possible. Later comments: as Graeme says a very surreal experience. Boatman thought the lot of us were quite odd but very amenable chap who did his best to get us onto the island in imperfect conditions. Island is obviously less densely vegetated than previously and relatively easy to explore in its fairly minimal attractions. Trig Pillar is not on high point being built next to Keepers Cottage. Worthwhile visit though purely to put real life faces to names and characters you feel you know so well through logs read over the years but never met. Great Day Out!

Very nice boxing day outing to test my nephews new mountain bike on the forest track in Simonside. Nipped out of the forest through the mist to bag the Trig/Marilyn. Not quite sure why I've never been up this hill when its so close to home and I must have climbed nearby Simonside Crag 15 times over the years. No longer a trespass issue as there is now a new public footpath right past the trig from Whitefield Hill to Simonside Crag.

Dug up lots and lots of turf but difficult to prod for as the ground is very stony. Measured 16.52m from the directional sign across the road (dodging the traffic!) but sign may have been moved slightly. Didn't seem to tally with the gully measurement either. Suggest the next person to attempt this brings hedge cutters and two 30m tapes as we suspect it is probably closer to the hedge than you can easily get at the moment.

Was there in 1993. In the middle of a planted cornfield. Trig itself was on a small patch of unplanted ground. Must have been removed by the farmer since then.

My first trig point aged four (although I didn't note down the number) Had been to other mountain tops by papoose but this was the first self powered ascent for me. Saw submarines in the Clyde on the way up.
