Parked at the equestrian place and thought it was going to be a straightforward walk up the hill but the "old" track now ends at a high fence and made the mistake of initially trying to get round to the right but had to come back and go through the short thorny woodland and through the fence then up the field. I can confirm that the electric fence near the trig is in good working order.

Parked at the nature reserve and walked round towards the stables. Passed a lot of bird watchers... must have been something special there today? Approached the stables and was faced with a field full of horses. Walked round and through the stables to a lane that led to the trig field. Opened the gate and carefully followed the lane's electric fence avoiding the large muddy puddle (which was almost frozen solid). Only one horse in the trig field, so quickly made our way passed it and up the hill for photos. Didnt want to hang around incase more appeared!

Just as we arrived at the pillar we met Aqueously90 on his way down. Stopped for the usual bagging chat when you meet another trigger. It was nice to meet you Aqueously90. This encounter distracted CJO and he got zapped crossing the electric fence to the pillar. BSM type. Agree adjacent TUMP is in the adjacent landfill site.

Log #214. Parked the car on the verge in front of the cottage at NS624577, and followed the muddy track. Didn't fancy pulling myself over the higher wire fencing, so I opted to push through the jaggy woodland and through the much simpler 5-wire fence. Two steps after climbing through the fence, I slipped in the mud and got clarted all up one side. Never mind. Walked up to the trigpoint, which is in good condition with the cap intact and the west-facing sighthole open. Don't believe access from SE is possible, and I think the nearby TuMP is also off the cards without trespassing into nearby landfill operations. Had some unexpected but very welcome visitors from Durham just as I was leaving. Just reading CJO's log now, and didn't realise the fence was electrified, sorry about that!

Parked at stables with permission. Walked down lane to new pond being built. Jumped over 2 high fences and up to trig in horse field.

The "extensive high-fenced noisy landfill" of my 2005 visit is now being reinstated and has a grassy summit. Friendly horses.

The new hill next door now has a grassy summit ...

Revisit. For photographs and GPS reading. Deleted from maps but survives. Approached from NW. Parked west side of road NS624578. Followed track to NS624576 then SE through trees and out onto open field which rises to the trig. Pillar in good condition. Spider retains original OS centre cap with shallow engraved letters. Flush bracket faces SSE, ~163. Distant views to west and north, southern aspect is blocked as this summit is now overtopped by a landfill site.

Very smelly trig which as per other logs is right at the edge of a landfill site and is not shown on the 1:25000 OS map. Parked at the end of the "private road" and nipped through a small copse of trees to get to the trig itself. Beware electric fences - looked like they were switched on but decided not to test the theory.

Through for an interview in Cambuslang. Quick trig bag. Cathkin Braes deserve more than a flying visit so left that one for now.

Considering the proximity of the landfill it could be a lot worse!

Higher landfill to the east cuts out much of the view from what must already have been a very flat yeaman summit.

Excellent condition pillar with intact spider and cap. Uninspiring views with noisy and smelly landfill immediately to the south. Pillar can be accessed from nearby farm who were fine with access

Easy access up "private" road to South Cathkin Farm, but beware of electric fences. On land being used for horses. Landfill site is higher than trigpoint but is "currently being smoothed down,will have topsoil added and will become just another hill" although higher than trig. LH sighting hole open, spider intact, Flush bracket faces the landfill (SSE).

This trig is now just outside impressive fences around what looks to be a landfill site. Best approached from North.

There was a landfill site back then, but much smaller than it later became. Visited with Fiona while working our way through Chalmers "One Hundred Hill Walks around Glasgow", already out of date at the time as the first bits of Stewartfield had been built.

Trig 5 of 13 for the day. Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed in January 1946 costing 6.8s.0d. Later in 1946 this marker was computed as secondary station NS77/18 in the Glasgow secondary block. Flush bracket S3609 was levelled for height in 1967. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in November 1981. Grazing land.
