Through Culter Allers farmyard and up the track via The Bracs and Tippet Knowe then quad tracks to the pillar. Better route and less steep than the the return path via Fell Shin. Frozen conditions made the going easier as I guess it would have otherwise been boggy in places. I got a bonus as the cloud lifted for 10 minutes when I reached the trig giving great, although limited, 360 degree views.

Walked up from Culter Allers. Saddened to see a notice at the side of the road concerning an expansion of the Clyde wind farm over these lovely hills. Highest point in Lanarkshire. Impressive views from the trig. I preferred this one to Tinto.

On the slow way back from the Highlands, ironically one of the higher hills to be bagged. Top of Lanarkshire, glorious spot, on to Snowgather next which does indeed have a little snow remaining.

On 16 mile, three trig round of the Culter Hills. Wonderful walk except the ridge between Coomb Dod and Upper Oliver Dod is best forgotten! Rough is an understatement. Started from Glenkirk to East, good track leads all way up to trig between Glenharvie Crag and Congrie Hill, with the massive Culter Fell towering to your right - wonderful. Then onto Moss Law, Gathersnow Hill, Hillshaw Head, Coomb Dod, Upper Oliver Dod, Nether Oliver Dod, Coomb Hill, Broomy Law, Glenlood Hill. About 5,000' ascent.

Second visit. For GPS reading and up to date photos. HISTORY: The original trig pillar on Culter Fell was built with flush bracket S5580, and was completed on 15th July 1949 costing 55.14s.4d. Culter Fell was computed as secondary station NS83/11 within the Lanark block during 1950. Levelled for height also in 1950. The pillar was rebuilt in November 1968 with flush bracket S1817, a recycled flush bracket from the then recently destroyed station at The Chevin, (SE199442, LR104). This marker was last maintained by the OS in July 1977. SITE VISIT: Approached from northwest. Parked by west side of unclassified road at NT030312 opposite Culter Allers. Walked approximately 600m along the decommisioned road and turned SE up mapped track for ~200m. From there, quadbike tracks lead all the way to the summit. The summit fence marks the county boundary. The approach and trig pillar are in South Lanarkshire, beyond the fence is in Peeblesshire. Pillar in fair condition, foundations eroded. Spider centre plugged with tar. Flush bracket faces south, ~177. All sight holes open, pillar bolt viewable. 360 PANORAMIC VIEW includes: Black Mount, West Cairn Hill, Mendick Hill, Mount Maw, Scald Law, Broughton Heights, Wether Law, Peat Hill, North Berwick Law, Dundreich, White Meldon, Blackhope Scar, Black Law, Windlestraw Law, Pykestone Hill, Dun Rig, Dollar Law, Broad Law, Hart Fell, Helvellyn, Skiddaw, Scafell Pike, Criffel, Mosshope Bank, Queensberry, Yearngill Head, Rodger Law, Lousie Wood Law, Green Lowther, Mountherrick Hill, Cairn Table, Dungavel Hill (East), Nutberry Hill, Lamington Hill, Irish Law, Hill of Stake, Tinto, Earls Seat, Meikle Bin.

Walked up the very steep Fell Shin in hot and sunny weather to bag Culter Fell trig, great views over countless numbers of hill and mountains in all directions, too many wind farms though! Bagged Broad Law that morning.

Good views in most directions. It seems the top of Lanarkshire isn't much frequented on weekday afternoons, even unusually pleasant ones. I didn't see another walker all day.

Pillar vgc but looking rickety as base is partly broken away. Asphalt plug. By fence. From E, Glenkirk, parking between bridge and CG. Up Glenlood Hill and Broomy Law (Glenkerie wind farm under construction) then crossed to Culter. Highlight was blackcock heard lekking, apparently near farm.

Parked to the east at Glenkirk and did a cicuit climbing from the south and returning via Chapelgill Hill. On the Lanarkshire/Strathclyde side of the fence. Two old ladies having lunch at the bottom told me it's pronounced "Cooter Fell". Called it slightly damaged as the base is starting to crumble and needs a bit of TLC. Also a chunk out of the side.

This is the second trig pillar at the secondary triangulation station on Culter Fell. It was rebuilt in November 1968 as S1817, a flush bracket from the 1930's which originally belonged to THE CHEVIN in West Yorkshire, SE199442. The original trig pillar on this site was S5580, built 15th July 1949. The fence in the background marks the county boundary. The trig pillar is in South Lanarkshire, the ground behind the fence is in Peeblesshire. Photographed on a very windy (note the Barnet!) 13th October 1992.
