Car park in wood at base of hill. Path through trees to gate and quick steepish ascent. Easy 10 mins max. Horizontal driving rain so none of the great views others had.

Unhappy windswept collie at trig.

Good parking in the woodland car park to the west of the Bathgate - Linlithgow road and follow signs for a short walk to the summit. Decent 360 views but got stuck in Linlithgow on the way back as it appeared to be their festival day.

On way to Linlithgow Rose 0-2 Raith Rovers (sadly no giant killing today, but a valiant performance from the underdogs) - lovely little ground too, with a hedge and a hill, and an appreciative big crowd. The pillar is finely set overlooking the town; open cap which today was filled with a bunch of flowers.

Visited before, returned to photograph. The view is not just Grangemouth - the rest of it is very pleasant. Typical volcanic outcrop of the Lothians. A popular walk up from Beecraigs woods, a lot of view for little effort. Good condition and with a toposcope for a companion.

Hill named Cockleroy on maps and local signs. Renumbered. Trig pillar was originally built as S3235 on 14th April 1944. Was rebuilt on 17th of June 1958 as S9653. Information kindly supplied by OS 28/03/03. Upon close inspection it would appear that the replacement pillar is built on the original base - different cement. The spider is open. Picturesque view to Ochils, over Grangemouth chemical works & oil refinery. GRP 13/04/03
