Walked from the Deer Centre with Elaine. Lots of Pheasants and Yellowhammers. We got to go to the top of the monument because some Polish people had got the key. Great views from the top but was very glad of the torch! Not an attractive monument but a good walk.

This was the 2nd of 4 Fife Marilyns and trig points I would visit today and not the best! Initially looked at parking near Fernie and heading up from NO320150 but there was nowhere suitable. There was a car already at the main starting place NO339159 but I was able to tuck my van in behind a tree, just before a slight bend at NO337157. The walk is straightforward along signed tracks. A deer fence encloses the summit, monument and pillar but there is a gate at NO330165. Due to tree cover, views from the summit were minimal. The monument dwarfs the TP. It (the monument) was locked but rather spookily I could hear noises from inside. TP slightly eroded at the top. Cap open

As per Bexen's log. Great walk up to trig, fully pathed all the way up. Once up there there is the Hopetoun monument which is quite spectacular

There was a storm brewing again (Storm Gertrude apparently - who chooses these names?). Not sure whether I was running before it, but suddenly I seemed to be within its vortex. What a buffeting. Pillar seemed unfazed though: open cap & one sight-hole open. Back down the slippery hill definitely in the eye of the storm, for a right soaking.

Visibility still poor so unable to access views accurately. Slightly damaged top and side, with no plug. Would have loved to climb tower to look down on trig.

From east on dry clear day. Met a man and family who had a key to the tower which certainly improved the view. This was the 6th time the tower had been open since October 2008. Very dark and narrow on way up....

Situated just below a hill summit on which stands a fine monume to John, 4th Earl on Hopetoit. The plug is missing. There is some white and yellow lichen on the pillar and there are some chips out of the top and sides. Concrete base projects about 4" all round. NW sighthole open, others closed. Fine spot.

Top and sides a bit tatty; remains of asphalt plug. Summit beside Monument: I entertained myself for a while getting a photo including FB and top of tower ! Easy access from SE, space for a car, luckily unoccupied and no-one seen en route. Nice summit and view. Tower door padlocked. Path crosses summit WSW-ENE although couldn't find its E end on the way up.

There's a chunk out of one of the apexes exposing the end of the spider. Pillar otherwise good. Tar plug broken open. FB faces south. One (back) sighting hole open. Wooded hill but top clear. Pillar dwarfed by Hopetoun Monument. Views to Drumcarrow Craig, Largo Law, Clatto Hill, Craigowl. Completed 12th June 1948. Secondary station in Block NO42, Dundee. Revisited and photographed 18/06/2005, GRP.

Good views - nearly 360 degrees - of gently rolling Fife countryside. There is forestry work going on nearby. Took non-digital phots - will upload when developed.

Next to the giant lum of the Hopetown Monument. First hill of many over a very fine New Year trip. A lot of trees have been recently felled so the views are back

The trig, next to the monument Dwarfed by the great lum of the northern of the two Hopetoun monuments and now with a clear view.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 12th June 1948 costing 6.15s.0d. Later in 1948 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station NO42/11 in the Dundee block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1967. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in June 1986. Neighbouring monument is inscribed with: "To perpetuate the memory of John 4th Earl of Hopetoun who died 16 August 1823, this memorial is erected by the inhabitants of Fife MDCCCXXVI". (1826).
