Parked trackside (NT 2478 1086). Took break running NE initially but easier taking a direct line through the trees. Pillar sits clear of the forest with extensive views N. Original centre cap retained, deeply indented lettering; LHD side sight hole open, rear plug degrading.

Parking and route as per Borderer, with the exception that the entrance to the firebreak was blocked by a windthrown tree, so headed to the trig slightly more directly through the widely spaced conifers. Kudos to whoever hauled the picnic table up there. Good view.

Same route as Borderer. A moochy misty day so no view. Spotted a vixen on the way down.

Followed the forestry track up from Nether Dalgliesh. Near to the highest point in the road took the ramp up through a small quarry which led to a good forest break. Took this to the dry stone wall and followed this to the pillar. Pillar and picnic bench in good condition although both covered in moss. No views due to mist.

Good condition and well clear of the forest. Ungrazed land made progress difficult. Picnic table nearby. Good views across the Moffatdale Hills.
