Moved to The Village recently and found this today while doing some exploring. A surprise find on the edge of a housing estate. I also have a passing interest in water towers so that was a bonus.

Cap missing and not filled in. Pillar slightly crumbling. In middle of housing estate so of little interest except this is on The Watershed of Scotland.

Trig in reasonable condition, unusually placed on large concrete block. Front and back sight holes open, didn't check spider centre as didn't fancy the climb onto block as covered in ice. No graffiti considering location and likewise zero views although the water tower was nicely lit by the sun. Located in housing estate on a heritage path called "The Via Flavii' or "The Auld Clay Road" as named by the Romans and cattle drovers.

Log #316. Easy from estate to south, pillar is on concrete plinth with cap missing. Slight damage around corners, to be expected. Large water tower next door, with a rivet somewhere apparently. [ExP-227/MiP-26/Rev-2/BM-20/IS-31/Other-10]

Visited this trig en route to watch Clyde v. Partick Thistle at the Broadwood Stadium, only unbeknown to me the match was being played at ....Alloa! Thanks Scottish Football League & Daily Record for letting me know. Not happy,but at least I got to see the Carrickstone pillar. An unusual placement this one,as already described below. What a different scene this must have been back in 1945 when the pillar was constructed.

No view except for the water tower. Maybe the block was designed to add prominence before the houses were built to the south.

Good condition pillar with the exception of a bit of damage to one corner on the top. Built on on a massive raft of stone. Very peculiar! No cap or plug present, FB faces north-ish with north-ish and south-ish sightholes still open and clear. Bolt visible (with a bit of squinting). No views due to the urban expansion although a hint of the view can be seen about 150 yards to the east. The Roman altar stone is nearby and worth a look if you like mostly amorphous blobs of sandstone. The trig is now pretty much clear of graffiti. Water tower is quite impressive...

Nice plinth, BSM-style, cap missing, nibble out the North corner with NorthEast and SouthWest sights open. Sitting in the shadow of a water tower, the view has been swamped by the urban expansion. The graffiti has nearly been weathered off and a curious local dog-walker cruised past me three times while I snapped and logged.

Some fresh graffiti but still surviving.. The Roman Altar stone has had a council makeover and is sporting a surround of natty railings.

Standing proud on its concrete pillar, sandwiched between housing estates and what I guess are water towers. Fine looking pillar with some slight damage to the top edges. Another BSM style FB (many are in this area) and a missing plug for the spider. Not a lot of graffiti considering its location

I bagged this one after work still in my shirt and tie! The trig is in a lane between streets in a housing estate with a massive ugly water tower looming overhead. The concrete plinth that the trig is on is quite big as well so a wee scramble is required to touch the top of the pillar! Views blocked on all sides by housing. The pillar is in not bad condition except for the fact that the spider cap is missing and there is some graffiti. The roman altar is just a short walk along the lane past the trig and is well worth a visit.

What a lot has changed in sixteen years. Housing everywhere now, but at least the trig pillar has been spared. Pillar elevated on top of large block, still in reasonable condition. Spider centre open and filling with litter. Front & back sighting holes open. BsM flush bracket faces 338, N.W. No views, dwarfed by water tank. Built 2nd February 1946. Tertiary station in Block NS77, Glasgow. Photographed 28/05/2006, GRP.

Whats it called? Home of Gregory's Girl and the infamous Auchenkilns Roundabout. Hill top in Cumbernauld next to a water tower. Plug missing and pillar is on a Cheviot style concrete plinth in the remains of an old hedgerow. Corner chipped. Lots of new houses. Ground pretty boggy, so hope their DPMs are up to the job. Just back from visiting 56N 4 W for the DCP.

Roman Altar stone Near the pillar, presume its the altar stone marked on the OS maps.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 11th December 1945 costing 16.9s.4d. In 1946 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station NS77/10 in the Glasgow block. Flush bracket S3563 was levelled for height in 1956. This trig point was last maintained by the OS on 13th March 1989. Trig pillar in good condition. Spider retained original OS centre plug. TP on a raised block next to a water tower. GRP visited 10/07/1990 when this area still seemed quite rural.
