Parked down on the roadside and accessed the trig easily via minor road and field edges. Very impressive panoramic views in all directions and we were able spot a fair few Borders landmarks from the summit - absolutely breathtaking. Finally, a bonus at this time of year that we weren't bothered by cattle - hoorah! :)

Super day for trig bagging :)

Followed the decent track through the tree belt from the north. First decent frost of the year made the going easy. Pleasant 360 views. The pillar appears unchanged from previous logs.

Good viewpoint on bald hill obviously used for cattle grazing judging by the polish on the pillar. Hard core has been placed around the pillar, dolerite chips, probably to firm the ground up after its been a cattle generated morass. Dry today. Chip missing from top surface, metalwork intact.
