Parked at Community Centre and followed rough track up to area where Trig stands. Avoided the cows thankfully.

Logging as 'couldn't find it' but not strictly true!, wee track from memorial hall to trig has two gates and lots of cows (Highland ones in the mix with big horns). No way round or through them. Got to within about 170m from field but could see the trig field itself was actually also full of cattle. Bonus benchmark on the memorial hall.

P156. Parked at gate and walked up track with loads of sheep. Then I was at the trig. Loads of bogcotton blowing in the wind.

Caithness. The gorse bushes have taken over the approach track so it is not as straightforward as it appears on the map.
