Good condition pillar. FB faces west-ish with all sightholes open and a good condition bolt visible. Cap present with sunken lettering and an OS plaque is affixed to the east-ish face. Good views despite the farm detritus and ruinous buildings

A wet and windy day. Parked at Seatter and walked up the track. This trig is surrounded by derelict buildings probably from the second world war.

Parked at end of road to Seatter Farm, no one home to ask for permission so went through gate and up lane to trigpoint which is next to an ROC station. Mr TJR waited in the car and was most disappointed when I told him there was an ROC station!

vgc, metal cap, shallow letters as befits its age. On grassed over mound amidst a scatter of wartime buildings. Fine views on a nice evening - finishing the day with the Deerness trio.

Top messy!

Painted white. On burnt mound, which is full of inarticulate stones, which are mostly turfed over. Private land farmed by an uncle and nephew.
