Although plenty of other baggers were in the vicinity for the Minigaff triggers' weekend, I was on my own for this one, visited on a walk around Newton Stewart to find most of the available benchmarks. Not an inspiring location this one.

Very close to car park, steepish track to reservoir but only 100m or so, thankfully outside the compound so a very easy bag.

Short walk up from car park to NW. Scruffy area next to a covered resr. No notes taken; from the snap looks like an asphalt plug replaces the metal top cap. With Alex C; met 61 and ER at the pillar.
