A more enjoyable hill in my opinion than it's West neighbour, great views of the coast - bit strange looking at Edinburgh considering how often I've stood there dreaming of doing these hills. To the rather marvellous Falklands Palace afterwards.

Walked to the summit via the rather vertiginous and eroded path from Craigmead, having summited West Lomond earlier in the day. Didn't linger long at the summit as there were too many loud picknickers there for my liking. Descended to the trig (rather weird that it wasn't on the summit!) and back to Craigmead via the masts.

11 mile circular from car park between the two main Lomonds, along tracks onto West Lomond trig, down and up onto Bishop Hill, then along by reservoirs to car park and out and back to East Lomond. Day started with high cloud but by the time we did East Lomond the cloud had lowered so the toposcope was rendered pointless. Walked Allermuir Hill and the north Pentlands the day before.

I suggested bagging this one before meeting up with others for RHW's last pillar on Benarty Hill but it look a bit longer than expected to get here and to do the not long climb from the car park. It is unusual to be able to view a pillar from quite a height above it. The cut bench mark on the topograph on the hill summit is 23.4m higher than S3163.

Never visited East Lomond Hill before and hadn't initially planned this additional walk today but as time on my side walked on. Must admit I wished I'd read either the map or the notes on this site as was initially surprised to find it off the summit. Thanks to notes by Clochandighter 6/3/2004 for explaining location, every trig I visit the more I learn. Trig in vgc and as previously described. Views here and on true summit great as was the addition of exploring the lime kilns.

Pillar not at summit, but 10m (hgt) down SE slope with no view to the north. As this pillar is on the northern edge of SB NT48, there would be no need to observe any secondaries further north from here, these are all in Block NO42, Dundee. Original visit 5/04/1985. Revisited and photographed 6/03/2004, GRP.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 19th October 1943 costing 8.1s.6d. Later in 1943 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station NT48/14 in the Edinburgh Block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1966. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in September 1984. My first ever recording of a Fife trig pillar. I managed to climb to the true summit of East Lomond without noticing that the trig pillar is actually over 10m (hgt) down the SE slope. I found it very strange that a triangulation station would be of any use with so much line of sight blocked by the hill. By 2004 I was far better informed of trig related matters, and my log of 6/03/2004 explains why line of sight to the north is not required from this station. Back in 1985, this pillar like most others still had a good coat of white paint. First visit 5/04/1985, GRP.
