Drove all the way up the dodgy track and parked at the gate. In hindsight should have parked a wee but lower down where it was much easier to turn. Trig at the back of compound, wee steps and gate into field. Lots of sheep.

vgc, metal cap, deep letters. BBC transmitter compund, gates open with engineer on site, but trig is just outside compound, at NW corner, edge of pasture. Decent view. Last trig of the trip, just an 8h drive home :-(

Located 3 miles south of the Aberdeenshire village of Fyvie in the shadow of the Core Hill TV transmitting station. Easy access from SW past the 'BBC No Admittance' sign. Public road nearby, the trig is just outside the perimeter of the transmitter. The trig pillar is in very good condition, spider retains original deep stamped font OS plug, FB faces NW, 45 into fence. Views to Hill of Petty, Mormond, Hill of Christs Kirk, Tap of Noth, Knockandy Hill, Foudland Hill, Hill of Tillymorgan, Hill of Rothmaise. Weather sunny & windy. GRP 19/08/03.
