Blackcraig farm. Then up towards this farm beford diverting across a small bridge to use gate to get onto hill. Then north through some fields before taking a more direct route to Blackcraig Hill with 2 inches of snow on its northern side. Then onto Blacklorg Hill which was easy enough before returning by a route crossing the Craig Burn to join a track lower down to Craig Farm and then back to the minor road.

Nice Sunday walk over Blackcraig, Blacklorg, Cannock Hill and Blackbraneoch. Cracking views all round right up to and beyond Arran, Ben Lomond and the Arrochar Alps :-)

Good condition pillar atop Black Craig. FB faces east-ish with west-ish sighthole open only. No cap or plug present. Superb 360 degree views. Came up from Blackcraig Farm via Quintin Knowe. Follow the fence line on the marked path. Boggy bit just before the trig still present and correct requiring a bounce of the fence and back again! Crafty pivot on the bedrock nearby.

Went up from Blackcraig Farm. Followed track to Quentin Knowe the up fence line. Nice view from top. Could see Ailsa Craig, Arran, Corserine, Rhinns of Kells, Solway coast etc. Better outing than Ben Nevis 2 days ago

HISTORY: Pillar completed 12th October 1949 costing 50.3s.0d. Computed as secondary triangulation station NS83/2 within the Lanark block during 1950. Levelled for height also in 1950. Last maintained by the OS in October 1976. SITE VISIT: Ample parking to east side of unclassified road, 200m south of Blackcraig Farm entrance. Route via Blackcraig Farm is waymarked and with walker friendly gates. Pillar in good condition. Spider centre open. Flush bracket faces northeast, ~50. Vented through SW sight hole. Views limited by foggy patches. My final extant pillar on LR71.

Access via Blackcraig Farm and up good hill path to Quintin Knowe then right parallel with fence. Good walking but boggy area nearing summit. Excellent views stretching from Cross Fell Pennines, Lake District, Criffell, Isle of Man, Merrick, Ailsa Craig, Kintyre, Arran, Ben Lomond and beyond and Ben Vorlich.
