Steady walk up from the locked barrier at ny 504 832 on good tracks.A lot of trees have been felled allowing good views to the scottish borders.The trig has its own little path to it and has a moss covering with original cap.

Walked in along tracks from NE: notices to say they are closed due to felling but no-one around as it's New Years Day. Trig beautifully mossy.

From north east along tracks. Discovered I'd left glasses in car about halfway so map reading slightly fraught! Lots of moss on trees and trig.

Parked at the end of the Bridleway north of Roansgreen then forestry tracks all the way to the pillar. Pillar some 30 metres to the east of the highest point of the track in a tree break. No views from the pillar itself but decent views to the north from the adjacent track

walked up track near Stongarthside Hall first part easy then its a bit of a fight through the woods Thankfully the Trig sits in a bit of a clearing just off another track which runs across the top,someone has started a collection in the cap unfortunately I had no change.
