Parked at the pub and headed down the road and behind the farmhouse and followed the track all the way. Hoped the cairn was the trigpoint but alas no and we had to head up a few more metres to bag the trigpoint. Enjoyed a lovely hot cup of tea in the pub on my return.

Deep crack at FB height, metal cap, deep letters. W side of deer fence but easy way thru from E. Mapped track is mostly good.
