Not the most exciting adventure hunting down this mostly hidden pillar. In touching distance over the garden wall; noticed that the cap remains in place. On my way to Bellslea Park to watch the Highland League's leading team, Fraserburgh FC .

Parked in the new estate opposite and walked back to the trig. I've driven past this trig lots of times from the various boats I've worked on here to the hotel in Memsie but never had the chance to stop until now.

Parked in small pull-in West-bound (opposite blue bench) - NJ 98887 65189. Still accessible from roadside but bush could do with a trim.

sitting at the highest point of Fraserburgh and up against the back wall of 21 Strichen court, the top of Middleburgh S6212 is subject to a 'boa constrictor' type plant trying to swallow it up!! grandaughter came to door with mother in the background. Grandad was out in Tenerife, but with initially a little bit of reluctance, they eventually agreed to open the garage to let me through to the back garden to photograph it

Spent some time trying to find the correct house to ask at, no joy. Then drove round to main round, nipped across to wall and grabbed a quick picture, still there but plant has grown!

DOH! The sat nav beeped so I stopped. No details with me so I though it would be a boring rivet in the kerb or something equally dull. Never realised it was a pillar in someones garden so I missed it....! Never mind, I'll be back up here sometime.

In back garden of private house built 1989. Accessed with kind permission of householder. Pillar VGC, hiding inside bush. Spider retains OS cap with deep stamped font. Highest point in Fraserburgh. History: Pillar completed 17th November 1950, as a tertiary station in Block NJ75, Banff.

See the arrow? It's in that bush.
The pillar. Inside the bush.
The sighting hole. All that is visible of the trig.
