Parked on minor road to south, followed nearly to the pillar by a herd of curious cows. Keep out building signs posted for what looks like a power line upgrade or yet more turbines in the adjacent fields.

Two buses in falling snow to reach Lesmahagow. Fields and tracks muddy, but helpfully, mostly frozen today to ankle-twisting ridges and clods! There is a Buddhist Ashram at the Lesmahagow end of the track, nice gardens and uplifting plaques!

Parked at the entrance to Lupus farm and made a dash across the fields towards the trig point. Late afternoon find in the fading light and a surprisingly good view in every direction from the summit.

Good condition pillar standing in a small stone shelter in a field full of curious coos. FB faces south-ish with all sightholes open but internally blocked. Cap missing but asphalt plug present. Decent views to neighbouring pillars. Right-of-way marked on the 1:50k map now along field boundary with obvious 4x4 tracks.
