Took Aqueously90's route and headed up the field past the cows, who luckily for us today went in the opposite direction!

Log #318. Parked on yellow road north of pillar, walked through unlocked double gates, then another two sets of single gates. Followed line of fence, then beelined for the copse of trees. Pillar is toppled, FB facing up, just north of the treeline. No sign of the bull mentioned on a nearby sign. [ExP-229/MiP-26/Rev-2/BM-20/IS-31/Other-10]

Couldnt see much today due to heavy fog. Pillar lying on its side at the field edge. Ground hard today but any attempt aftr rain would be a mud bath :)

No cows today but trigpoint in very good nick apart from being on its side. Approached from NNE through fields.

Second visit. For photographs & GPS reading. On northerly sloping grazing field occupied by Highland cattle. Column recumbent but otherwise in good condition. Spider centre open. Flush bracket originally faced 181 (S) but as the pillar has fallen northwards the number faces the sky. Downward sight hole assumed to be open as the three exposed sight holes are all plugged. 180 panoramic northerly view, southern aspect blocked by woods. Revisited 19/11/2011, GRP.

Toppled pillar with FB facing upwards. Cap missing and hole not plugged. Good views across Johnstone/Paisley.

Cap missing, spider and fb intact with visible sights plugged... my suspicions of its toppling lie with the owner of the Big House immediately uphill from the pillar.

Hall Hill a bad way :-(

No change in status. No bull (or any other livestock) despite close proximity of sign suggesting otherwise.

Still lying in the same place. There was a bull in the field, but lower down and unconcerned. Traces of snow still lying on Misty Law.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 26th August 1946 costing 9.13s.6d. In 1949 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NS77/T151 in the Glasgow secondary block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1968. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in October 1971. Overlooks school. Definitely was not toppled when visited by GRP, 7/08/1989. Sorry no camera with me back then.
