Good view. The gushing tribute to Sir John Malcolm on the monument would make even a banana republic's tin-pot dictator blush!

Energetic climb up from town to have me pretty invigorated by the time I arrived at the pillar. Nice pleasant stroll back the long way along the road, with plenty of time to enjoy the lovely views and reflect on a great 4 days up north.

Nothing really to add to previous visit reports other than to confirm that it is still there and in excellent condition. The adjacent monument has a Cut Mark on the west face and has also been used as an Intersected Station.

Adjacent to the monument. Its an easy walk up the access track from the road to the north. Fabulous views in all directions, but especially towards the Solway. Even on a drizzly afternoon, its far better than being at work :)

Parked at car park on the minor road about 3/4 mile away. Location dominated by the monument (which has a benchmark). Pillar stands close by. Views very good to Langholm and beyond. Pillar has remains of grey and white paint. Retains plug, large shallow indented lettering.

A drive up, on Whita Hill with two monuments, one to General Malcolm. A finer monument is the one to Hugh McDiarmid beside the road. Very good views over the plain around the Solway. A clear and cold day.

First visit. To record FB number. HISTORY: The pillar was completed 5th November 1957 costing 33.16s.2d. In 1959 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NY29/T18 in the Lockerbie secondary block. Flush bracket S9389 was levelled for height also in 1959. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in May 1977. SITE VISIT: Whita Hill. Approached from west, climbing mapped path. Spider retained OS centre plug. No photos taken.
