Easy access on good paths from either the cattle grid at SE 03158 55073 up the path beside the wall - or the access path at SE 03417 55159 beside the signpost. Huge cairn dominates the hill top but great views around. Look out for the "stone man" on the path from the cattle grid! I would also echo the comment earlier about the odd concave top on this pillar - very obvious and must have caused problems for surveyors?
