Log #223. Logged retroactively, as I completely missed it when I was at the pillar. I did touch it though, so I'm counting this (although I wouldn't normally). Only the base appears to be remaining, and not instantly obvious that a flagpole was previously there. Surrounded by four benches to make a decent viewpoint over Gourock Bay and towards Helensburgh and Kilcreggan. [ExP-174/MiP-8/Rev-2/BM-13/IS-20/Other-6]

Remains probably describes this better than damaged. The flagpole housing is all that's left. Trig pillar co-located (and courting couple).

Only the base of the flagstaff remains, flanked by remembrance dedicated viewing seats looking out over a stunner of a view (better positioned than the younger, nearby trig pillar) Revisited 24thJuly2012 for GPS.

Craigs Top Flagstaff ..gone but leaving behind a stunning view.
