Personal details:Visited over 2500 trig pillars radiating in all directions from Central Scotland over the past 36 years. I have now visited every known accessible standing OS triangulation pillar on the Scottish mainland between the line of the Great Glen and the Border with England. Also have many in England and beyond the Great Glen. East coast complete from John O'Groats to Ravenscar. West coast from above Fort William to south of Lancaster. Also many of my trigs logged, have been visited more than once, mainly for up to date photos and GPS readings. With the Southern Uplands and the Lake District all now completed, I need to search further afield. In the south, Yorkshire and Lancashire still hold some unchartered territory for me. In the north, beyond the Great Glen are many outstanding trigs still to bag. In the west there are many island bags still to be had. In the east I'm in the sea unless I do Orkney, more of Shetland or extend further into Yorkshire. All good physical and mental exercise. Still updating data on the Yahoo group, Trigonomy which many members of TrigpointingUK also contribute to.
