A not too difficult walk up through the wood, eventually leading to an open view of the Tay valley. The pillar is cracked at the bottom of the flush bracket and all the way around above the sight holes. After a diversion via Kinnoull Tower, it seemed a much longer walk down, probably because we went the wrong way.

Great navigating by Brisey got us to the car park, though calling it a car park is a bit of an exaggeration, more like a wide gated entrance. A steepish walk up through the woods brought us out at the top and gave us great views and a trig point as a reward.

Log #46. I came up here a couple of times when I lived in Perth, but it always seemed to be at night after a few beers. The trig is in good condition, other than a crack running around the entire lower perimeter of the pillar. Thankfully it has avoided the vandalism that covers the stone table 100m to the south. The views were great, although the cloud cover prevented clearly seeing the furthest mountains to the NW. The view south from the cliff edge is fantastic, if you ignore the sewage plant. To the ESE is Kinnoull Tower, which is worth a quick visit. As with my other trips up here, it would take some sort of monetary incentive to get me to peer over the cliff edge. [ExP-46/MiP-0/BM-0]

The final trig-point of my excursion north to the Perth Mega Geocaching Event. It took me a little while to get here as my stupid sat-nav was insisting that I use a private road up alongside the Deuchny Burn and I had to back-track a bit. I finally pulled off the road, north of the hill and took the well made path to the summit. Not a difficult climb, just a gentle uphill drag compared with some I tackled earlier in the week. I was surprised to find myself alone at the top as I expected it to be crowded with geocachers. Splendid! The pillar is in good condition and complete with all it’s metalwork. There is some light cracking in the surface cement but hardly enough to mark it as ‘slightly damaged’. There’s an adjacent seating area and topograph viewpoint. The views north and east are splendid but trees obscure the view in other directions. I spotted numerous people crashing around in the undergrowth as I made my way back down the hill. Wonder what they were doing…

Popular summit, lots of people around. Apart from the horizontal cracks near the bottom, this pillar has been refaced so there are no surface cracks near the top. Spider retains indented font OS plug. FB faces 279°, west. All four sighting holes cemented over. A toposcope advertises big views, but the surrounding tree plantation has left only line of sight to Mailer Hill, Ben Cleugh and Craig Rossie. Revisited & photographed 24/09/2005, GRP.

Visited this trig, whilst doing 3 nearby Geocaches. I have got to say, that i didn't see any damage to the trig, perhaps i missed it.

Approached from the north. First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 20th March 1950 costing £15.2s.6d. In 1951 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NO02/T44 in the Perth secondary block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1953. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in October 1987. Spectacular views over the Tay. No photos taken.

An evening walk breaking a long bus journey. Lovely viewpoint.
