Shame that the pillar is so damaged. A fantastic walk up from Glenduckie. Only trig of the day but what views! A lovely frost, sunny day. Ideal for first day of winter. Red-legged Partridge and Yellowhammer.

3rd pillar of the day and visited after climbing Cairnie Hill, my 3rd Marilyn of the day. Approached from just outside Monimail and up by Pathcondie to Cairnie Hill then around to Dunbog, avoiding various fields with cows. Easy walking on very grazed vegetation. Pillar badly eroded but spider and cap intact, complete wth lettering.

Staying at a cottage on Dunbog farm so made a circular walk of this up the main track past the wind turbines, up to the trig point. Great views. We then tried to follow the same track towards Balmeadow hill with a view to getting on the track at Johnston back to Dunbog. This meant a few fence crossings and some trudging across fields as the map and reality don't match near the end of the walk and we ended up having to do a short section of the main road to get back on the track to Dunbog.

Was doing a few geocaches in the area so ended up doing a ridiculous cross country route. If only I'd stayed on the track from Monimail, it takes you basically to the trig. Base of trig eroded, chunks out of pillar and full of cracks. View too hazy to see much today.

Breezy Spring day, great views North and East with showers moving down from Angus. Walked up on a circuitous route from the East along the Dunboghill track.

Enjoyed a vigorous and rigorous soggy ascent to find this damaged pillar nicely set in a sheep-nibbled field. Left the gluey, muddied track to approach this from a north-westerly direction, where the grassy fields made for easier walking. Cap in place with light lettering, and all four sight-holes open. Musically, a sad day: Is There Life On Mars?

Out geocaching with my son and Niece, had a great day. Views were really nice, getting here had been interesting as we had gone through the fields looking for plastic.

On bike from Ladybank. Ran into folk on their way to kill things so had to have a second try at the trig, which was easy from the west side. The Dunbog to Monimail track is a good one. As reported there are chunks knocked out of the pillar and cracks throughout the structure. A good scratching session from one of the local bovines will see it off.

Good access from walker-tolerant Dunbog to north. Ground surrounding pillar had been stripped of its vegetation somehow, but not ploughed. Bit odd. Pillar missing a sizeable chunk

Large chunk missing from vertical edge near top. Other cracks around the top third of the pillar are looking structural. Spider retains OS plug with shallow engraved font. FB faces SW. All four sighting holes open. Grazing top heavily populated with cattle; probably the main contributory cause of the pillar damage. Views to Pole Hill, Normans Law, Mount Hill, Drumcarrow Craig, Hill of Tarvit, Largo Law, Clatto Hill, Dundreich, Arthurs Seat, Allermuir Hill, Scald Law, East Lomond, West Lomond. Built 6th June 1948. Tertiary station in Block NO42, Dundee. Revisited and photographed 18/06/2005, GRP.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 6th June 1948 costing 5.13s.0d. Later in 1948 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NO42/T10 in the Dundee secondary block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1967. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in September 1984. Fairly certain pillar was in better condition back in 1988. I do not recall the damage as found on my more recent visit.
