Parked by the mast and vaulted the barbed wire fence. Not to bad under foot.

Horrid drive on narrow road with snow. Parked opposite pillar at entrance to water board facility. Only 50m but as others have pointed out it's 50m of tussocks and wetness after you vault the barbed wire fence.

So near yet so far.

General view with dry area round trig.

Log #274. Parked in front of mast and through gate into rushy field. Very wet, so watch where you put your feet. Good condition, but no views through the thick fog. [ExP-201/MiP-17/Rev-2/BM-15/IS-30/Other-9]

Field still a quagmire. Near to farmhouse so thought I'd ask permission but nobody at home. Considering it's location it was unusually not raining.

Slight detour to visit trig to get respite from blinding low sun while driving westwards on M8. Glad I had wellies in the car.

Good condition pillar about 30m away from the road. Slightly rushy field, but there's a bit of a path about 20m into the field. Don't take the direct approach! Wet feet all round. FB faces ESE-ish with all sightholes open but internally blocked. Cap missing but asphalt plug present. Lovely clear day so expansive views right across the central belt including Meikle Bin right the way round to the Pentlands and perhaps Arthur's Seat encompassing the Ochils. Great views for such little effort!

Asphalt cap and all sights open with exposed puddley base. It seemed like a good idea at the time.. en route home from StarTrek, I aroused the curiosity of the neigh-bouring horseholder as I schlepped my way across the boggy field (more water than mud), stormclouds covered the full moon so no views... leaving my camera in the car was the last straw! DOH! ;-)

Agreed, very frantic and especially daft coos. They ran away at my approach!?! Local dogs were very friendly tho, was expecting to be chased off but was more in danger of being licked to death.

Guarded by a gang of typically dippy heifers. Short boggy hop from the road. Concrete plug replacement. BSM type.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 10th January 1946 costing 8.2s.8d. In 1947 this marker was computed as tertiary station NS77/T87 in the Glasgow secondary block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1963. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in May 1979.
