Excellent views along the coast line, as well as inland to Aberdeen. Trig point in good condition, painted white with what I understand is a football logo from a previous log!

Accessed the trig via the steps just past the Beach Ballroom. Loved the Aberdeen FC logo graffiti on the trig! Decent views as it was a nice clear day.

Parked behind recreational buildings in dodgy car park for a very steep and ill advised trip to the top. Came back via the path! Surprised to see a few other folk up here at night.

Signs of graffiti on the pillar. Full appreciation of the view could not be obtained due to a sea mist and the imminent arrival of cloud rain clouds from the west.

This is where football and trigpointing come together! Here to watch Aberdeen v CS Fola Esch in the Europa Cup (3-1) in an entertaining match with AFC scoring two late goals. The pillar is once again full of graffiti, but otherwise seems to be keeping well in its both urban and seaside setting. This has got to be the nearest pillar to a football ground. Loved it.

Easy to spot from the Esplanade, on business my first visit to Aberdeen had to bag a trig with limited time. An urban trig, still graffiti all over it but a fine fellow looking over Pittodrie with good views north and south along the coast along with a view of The Granite City. Will I ever beat this for Northern Trigs?

On NorthSea coast, lovely artistic grafitti over the whitewash.Cap missing, W sighting open,colourful FB! I've since been reliably informed that this man-made mound is the debris that was dug out to enlarge the Harbour.

Broad Hill a better class of grafitti !

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 14th May 1949 costing 9.15s.0d. In 1950 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NO98/T10 in the Aberdeen secondary block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1967. This trig point was last manitained by the OS on 8th December 2000. First ever Aberdeen trig visit. Visited after dark while staying in Aberdeen on business.
