Log #211. Parked directly in front of the pillar! Turn off Broom Road East and into the Mearns Castle High School parking area. The pillar is in good condition and the cap is still intact, which is a little surprising considering its very accessible location. [ExP-169/MiP-8/Rev-2/BM-12/IS-17/Other-3]

Good condition pillar in school car park. Easy access. Spider intact with cap (sunken lettering). Pillar slighty buried so only one sighthole partially visible. Situated right on edge of south Glasgow escarpment so excellent views over city and to Fereneze hills and Cathkin Braes.

Excellent condition within schoolgrounds.. maybe due to the proximity of the Teachers car-park? Sunk a little bit with only the North sight remaining open.

Castle Farm ..Lovely.

I have often walked past this one so today I took my GPS & Camera so at long last I can log it. As the photo shows view was excellent with Ben Lomond on the horizon.

BSM type. In school car park rather than anywhere near kids, so no problem nipping in for two secs.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 7th March 1946 costing 7.12s.10d. In 1947 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NS77/T107 in the Glasgow secondary block. Flush bracket S3661 was levelled for height in 1967. This trig point was last maintained by the OS on 18th December 1973. Amazingly the spider still retained its original OS centre plug when I visited. BsM flush bracket. In school grounds just inside entrance, gates open.
