Southern Upland Way from Wanlockhead to Lowther Hill then tarmac road to the pillar. Very windy at the top but great views spoiled only slightly by the ironmongery.

Log #443. Up from Wanlockhead via Southern Upland Way. Three Donald round including Lowther Hill and East Mount Lowther. Very enjoyable walk - not too steep, not too long, not too strenuous. Pillar has some damage to top face and cap is missing, but otherwise OK. Fantastic 360* views, though the haze kept visibility down to a paltry 20km or so - Tinto just about visible.

Excellent round of the Lowther Hills (including Eat Mount Lowther) in a break in the weather after heavy rain and snow. The masts and various types of air traffic equipment only made for a more interesting walk.

Slightly damaged trig pillar standing atop Green Lowther amidst a plethora of masts and aerials and crappy-looking buildings. FB faces south-ish with the west-ish sighthole open only. Trig generally in good condition except for the top screed which has suffered some depletion. No cap or plug present. Stupendously good 360 views all around. Today's visibility was about 30 miles. Came up the Southern Upland Way track from Wanlockhead.

In light mist which made the masts seem eerie. Sun came out as I dropped off Lowther Hill. I may have been here in 1992(?) when I did the Southern Upland Way.

A week staying in Wanlockhead in what would turn out to be clear blue skies, except the day we climbed Green Lowther, we used the road for accessing the radar/transmitters; as we thought it would be easier to follow in the low cloud cover, which we hoped would burn off by the time we reached the top! - unfortunately we did not get to see the views, but did spend two hours playing SOTA - Summits On The Air (www.sota.org.uk) Will have to make the trip again. Spent the rest of the week looking at the 'golfball' from all the other summits we climbed!

Done as part of a walk from Wanlockhead visiting East Mount Lowther, Lowther Hill and then onto this trig at Green Lowther. Strange walking along a road above 2000ft! Lots of things to see including the "golfball" radar instillation and various masts and buildings. Cloud down and raining so no views. A rather gloomy place today, must return on a clear day to see what the view is like.
