Clambered up from the path through the bracken in a southerly direction to the summit area. Managed to locate the pillar very quickly despite the surrounding foliage. Slight wear and tear on the corners.

Lovely walk from parking spot at roughly N56 19.263' W3 12.210' along the track, then headed up some forestry trenches for a wee shortcut and up the final steep section to the top. Trigpoint is not at summit but hope I walked over it at some point! Can't believe that someone has left a pile of rubbish in a half burnt fashion up here.

A hill with an identity crisis - it's Woodheads Hill on other sites. Followed the track in from the north and followed round and then steeply up the last hundred yards. Seems popular with dog walkers.

P143. YSM091 Grange Hill. D1.5 t2.5. Followed the tracks made by the forestry machinery which went near enough straight to the pillar. Spooked a row deer which let out some strange barks. Watched a wee plane overhead switching engine off and then restarting. Cheers.

Approached from the road to the north and drove part way up the track to a suitable parking area. Followed the core path waymarker up onto the track and followed this south until a junction leading to track heading north up the hill. Headed off track for the last few hundred feet up to the trig. Found a shortcut back down through the cut trees. Almost back at the car when I realised Id left my walking pole up at the trig.. Doh!! (back up again via the shortcut wed found and added an extra 30mins)

An enjoyable stroll up here; I parked in a lay-by near Berryhill Farm, walked up the road passing a beautifully maintained and working well, to take the track up and round Red Myre. Almost a conical shape to the hill with the pillar nicely set amidst the tufty grass and a few windswept trees. I've marked this pillar as slightly damaged because there is now significant peeling away of the outer casing on three sides. Good to see the cap in place with shallow lettering; all four sight-holes open. Pity about the nearby camp-fire remains, and a pile of empty cans and bottles. On return, I plunged straight down the side of the hill clambering over fallen trees to quickly regain the footpath. Fine visit on a lovely Spring day.

Parked near Woodmill then used to track to bag Cowden Hill then returned down track. Then up field towards Woodheads Hill which has Grange Hill trig near the summit. Continued off-piste through woods to farm track then oat field towards woodland on Black Hill then returned back down to Woodmill.

Pleasant approach via track from North. On to HuMP summit a mile to the NW, which took a bit of finding.

Really nice walk up from the north-west. top tip from local dog walkers - drive the first 500m and park by the edge of the forest.

Weddersbie Hill. Summit sparsely wooded, hillsides a very pleasant forest, ruined by antisocials playing with toy motorbikes. A neighbouring broom bush had been recently pruned to allow reading of the fp

Revisit. Frog living in pillar. Four sighting holes open, choice of entrance route for frog. Pillar VGC but facing on back peeling. Spider retains OS plug with shallow engraved font. FB faces NE straight into bush, pruning necessary for photographs. Wooded hill with top clear. No view due to surrounding trees. Built 18th June 1948 (Happy 57th Birthday - the trig, not me, I'm much younger). Tertiary station in Block NO42, Dundee.

No views; dismal day. Top is pretty well clear of trees but a new one growing just in front of plate.

I bagged this one as it was a geocache virtual. The pillar is in very good condition, with intact plug. The site's surroundings are wooded and it is no longer possible to turn a round of angles from it. With a lick of white paint this pillar would be as good as new.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 8th June 1948 costing 5.19s.6d. Later in 1948 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NO42/T13 in the Dundee secondary block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1954. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in October 1971. I had this logged as Weddersbie Hill for years. This pillar is actually on Weddersbie Hill. Grange Hill is the neighbouring hill to the north west. GRP.
