Log #460. Parked in gateway to north and ran up the hill. Nothing much to note, pillar in good condition and decent views of the hills to north. [ExP-314/MiP-38/Rev-6/BM-31/IS-50/Other-21]

Parking and access as Cootking. Second time lucky. Was thwarted a few months ago because arable crop in field but today it was just sheep.

Stopped on minor road at field gate north of trig - no traces of use by farmer. Less than 2 mins up through field. Fine underfoot until last 10 yards- horrible mud/probable cow poop. - I fell in and then had to go back to work. Be warned.

Proper spider

Gerry thought he was driving to a trig he hadn't done and even when very close he couldn't remember it! Knocked at farmhouse, no reply, so quick climb of the gate and trig was in the bag.

#283 P#208 P2016#8. Over gate and up hill then I spotted the pillar at the top. Very muddy field and all ploughed up by the cattle at the trig.

Over the metal farm gate (can't see pillar from the road) and up the grassy field where cows & calves were grazing contentedly watching the world go by. Pillar has its cap with indented lettering, & one sight-hole open. Not far away is the old trackbed of the Auchterarder to Crieff railway.
