With access to a car today and travelling back north from Edinburgh with the M90 closed due to an accident it made sense to take a burl up Bishop Hill from Holl Reservoir and handy parking. The trig point makes a good addition and I went on to Haperleas reservoir.There is forestry work going on at the moment but I waited until worker in machine saw me and waved me on before carrying on along the path. Trig Point surrounded by 4-5 sitka trees, possibly self seeded. but views to South and East good,

Feeling terrible with heavy 'man-flu' type symptoms, but no chance of wasting such a lovely autumn afternoon, so off for a Fifeshire frolic in the Lomond Hills where during my walk I diverted to visit this nicely situated trig. Pillar has its cap with shallow lettering, and all s/h's open. What a tonic - felt much better at the end of the walk.

Trig in vgc, all sight holes open, cap and spider intact. Limited views due to woodland but nice quiet spot near the main attraction off the Lomonds.

Followed the track up from the reservoir car park then diagonally across the open ground to the pillar. Hot day and conditions dry but guess this approach could get tricky if wet. Really good views to the south. As with the East Lomond trig this one is curiously located. Two conifers standing guard either side.

All intact. Outside forest on a small knoll beside a few conifers which largely obscure pillar, which have grown since Agentmancuso visit in 2013. no photos

First outing since hurting foot a few weeks ago - limped along the track from the Holl Resr carpark till due east of the pillar. Not as far in the trees as the 1:50k would have you believe.

vgc, metal cap, shallow well-formed letters. In edge of low-conifers plantation with a view out over Glenrothes to Isle of May, Berwick Law, Arthurs Seat and Pentlands. Leisurely 3-trig Lomonds circuit with Keith and Dani. Picknicked here. En route from West Lomond, had my best-ever view of Crossbills, watched at close quarters for quite a while.

Drumain from West Lomond Drumain trig is near far R corner of biggest woodland block.

A nice little hill, in the midst of bigger things. En route to Bishop Hill.

Walked over from West Lomond, back by the way of the dam at Harperleas Reservoir, this made it a nice round trip.

Very good condition and intact. Southern edge of the Lomond Hills with fine views southward to the Forth. Second generation of trees coming on now, but the view will still be there for a while.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 17th October 1943 costing 6.12s.9d. Later in 1943 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NT48/T22 in the Edinburgh secondary block. It was recomputed as same in 1987. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1966. This trig point was last maintained by the OS on 2nd October 1984. Circular walk from Markinch railway station.
