Parked beside the Clochandighter Forest sign just off the new by pass, to the NW of the trig. Plenty of parking. Lovely path through the forest led easily to the trig. Good views to the north.

Hardest part was finding somewhere to park! Opted for opposite the gate. Easy walk up a great path, as per previous log cap missing, trig between truncated mast and reservoir. Visited nearby memorial which has a rivet on the top. Also visit farm shop, lovely ice cream!

Nice walk up a decent track to the south. Pillar sandwiched between an ugly covered water tank and former radio mast. Nice and quite on a Sunday afternoon but a long line of parked dump trucks and excavators working on the new bypass just to the north mean that the peace won't last long. Shame.

Lots of new-build hereabouts with a massive industrial estate (Badentoy Park) and housing nearby encroaching towards this iconic triggers' hill. Should this have been allowed to happen?! But I enjoyed the stroll and the views. Pillar fine, open cap, and one sight-hole open.

Since *Clochandighter* has been my guide and mentor in all aspects of trigpointing, I felt obliged to make the pilgrimage on my way back from a work-related expedition to Aberdeen.

vgc, no cap or plug. Between fenced compounds. No view. Felling ongoing N side of hill. So that's where Clochandighter lives! Then I found myself following a car reg GRP later in the day.

Third visit. Beautiful wooded top if you ignore the covered resrs, defunct comms mast and litter. Pillar VGC. Spider centre now open (Grr!) revealing rusting centre pipe. Flush bracket faces 9, north. Vented through RHS sighting hole. No view. Built 4th September 1949. Secondary station in Block NO89, Aberdeen. Revisited and photographed 15/10/2005, GRP.

Clochandighter, where have we heard that name before? Trig pillar in good condition. Spider retained OS boss with indented lettering. Flush bracket faces NNE. Covered reservoir and disused comms mast (climbed to top) at summit, but all the same a beautiful location. Visited and photographed 15/08/2000, GRP.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 4th September 1949 costing 14.4s.0d. In 1950 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station NO89/10 in the Aberdeen block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1952. This marker was last maintained by the OS in September 1973. A walk in the dark. Was up in Aberdeen on business. Next day I told a group of a dozen or so Aberdonians that I had climbed to the summit of Clochandighter the previous night. Blank looks of astonishment from all, not one of them had heard of it. I showed it to them on the map, they never knew it existed. GRP, Weds 11th March 1987.
