First trig of 2021. Same as most by parking on the minor road to the north and heading through the woods. Detour via the obelisk on way back to car.

Parked on the minor road to the north, navigated along the woodland tracks, over a stile and up the hill to the trig, a nice and easy one to bag. Decent views across to the Cheviots and Eildons on this beautiful crisp autumn morning.

A stunning morning for trigging :-)

Easy walk through the woods from minor road to the N. I don't think there had been a day without rain since the entry below describing the woods as 'muddy', so wellies were an essential, despite it being mid August (or even 'mud August'). A beautiful evening and superb views S to the Cheviot, Yeavering Bell etc. Limited views N. Be wary of the stile out of the woods - the electric fence is definitely in operation - you've never heard a dog yelp as loud as Watson did as he caught it crossing the stile.

Another unplanned Trig visit, an easy bag from Hirsel Lake car park although it envolved taking a longer route around and up to avoid the cattle (who clearly like using the Trig as a scratching station) and slopping through some very wet, muddy woodland tracks.

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition.

Parked at Hirsel country park café. Then followed red route to Dunglass bridge, at the bridge continue up track to find gate on left into field and up to top of hill for the trig. Not a good day to be a pheasant, shooters out everywhere.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 27th February 1953 costing £15.19s.6d. In 1957 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NT72/T49 in the Jedburgh secondary block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1970. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in November 1986.
