One of the easiest points to find in Glasgow. The scenery in autumn is stunning and the view from the point spans the whole of the city.

Log #202. Early finish from work, so popped up to this one on my way home. Parked at the golf club car park to the NNE and followed the obvious track up. The trig is on your right as you walk up towards the green, in a small copse of trees. View immediately north of the pillar is blocked, but there is a decent view over the city on the walk back down. 10 minute round trip tops. Cap is missing, and very slight damage to one spider arm.

Good car park and 5 min walk up track to trig. That's it. Not much else to say about this one. I didn't notice any damage.

Good condition pillar on Linn Park golf course. FB faces south-ish with the north-ish sighthole open only. Good-sized chip at the end of one spider arm but otherwise vgc. Cap missing and no plug. View from the trig itself a bit limited due to a stand of trees in front of it. Round the other side of those, though, excellent expansive views north to Earl's Seat, Dumbreck, Duncolm, Meikle Bin, Holehead.

Best to do this one in the winter when there are no leaves on the trees - view not bad through the bare trees. No photos - had a camera meltdown when I got back and deleted them.....

Third visit. For photographs and GPS reading. SITE VISIT: Pillar in good condition (will check photos). Spider centre open. Flush bracket faces due south, ~180. Vented through north sight hole. Tree coverage made GPS reception poor hence the measurement obtained.

Near hidden under an impressively large tree, corners chipped, spider intact, plug has since gone missing with only North sight open. Terribly wet day kept the swingers in the Clubhouse.

relatively easy to locate if looking for it - by large tree on hill.

Decent condition for an urban pillar, only a few chips round the edges. I guess being hidden in the trees on a golf course helps.

One of the few I've found that is in excellent nick, must be where it's sited, and it's hidden well with the trees, I bet even the golfers don't notice it.

Boxing day run with new digital camera for Christmas will now be able to post pictures of the trig points visited. My second visit to this TP still in good nick and safety tucked in some bushes beside one of the tees.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 6th March 1946 costing 7.12s.10d. In 1947 this marker was completed for triangulation as tertiary station NS77/T132 in the Glasgow secondary block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1967. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in September 1971. OS archive has S3668. Golf course. Part of my 40 mile walk of the day.
