Log #209. Not a huge amount of space to park on the road, but it's a simple, quick bag by heading through the gate and following the hedge boundary. Pillar is in good condition with a lightly indented (replacement?) cap. [ExP-167/MiP-8/Rev-2/BM-12/IS-17/Other-3]

Quick dash through the field to get this one. Would never know it was here without the joy of the OS maps. Good views.

Vgc pillar beside a hawthorn hedgerow. Fortunately, the hedgerow hasn't engulfed the pillar in any way. Spider intact with OS cap with sunken lettering. All sightholes are closed. FB faces W-ish. Surprisingly good views to the north with the Campsies and Dumgoyne looking lovely in the snow.

All intact and all sights closed, shrouded by hawthorn that make a glorious sighting due north.. Dumgoyne marks the Camps, Ben Lomond starts the Munros... Glorious!

Meikle Dripps ..glad to avoid the muck-spreading ;-)

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 9th March 1946 costing 7.12s.10d. In 1947 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NS77/T43 in the Glasgow secondary block. Flush bracket S3659 was levelled for height in 1967. This marker was last maintained by the OS in September 1971. Spider retained original OS centre cap. BsM flush bracket. On the edge of a grazing field.
