Log #222. Parking spaces right opposite. Good viewpoint, and got to try out some panoramas with my camera. Trig point has some slight damage, but nothing too bad. Cap is missing. Somewhat overshadowed by two (ex-)viewfinders and a big blue lump of metal which was apparently a flagstaff intersected station. [ExP-174/MiP-8/Rev-2/BM-13/IS-19/Other-6]

Roadside parking bays, short walk to this pillar and remains of intersected stn. Pillar has been roughly cast and has a number of cracks. Cap missing, no plug (except for some vegetative matter that I cleared out); 2 sight holes open. Some nice views through 360deg.

Parked just to the south-west in the layby and walked all of 50 yards to the pillar. Lovely views across the Firth. Fairly insipid pillar and concrete-caked viewpoint though. FB faces east, west and south holes are open, cap missing and hole open.
