Wish they were all so easy. Parking space on road few yards from gate. Awkward climb then few yards down field. Good views down Tay.


Middle distance beside fence.

Easy roadside bag with just a wee fence to cross if you want to hug it.

It's unusual enough to meet someone at any non-mountain top trig, but a pretty unique experience at an FBM. Hailstones, following on from hot sunshine. Easy find.

Dusk, but still easy to find. Didn't bother going over the fence, you can still touch it by reaching through.

Log #47. First FBM, it was so close to Kinnoull Hill, I had to bag it. There is a parking place 50m away, from there it's just an easy hop over the gate. Good condition, no height tag (which seems to be the standard in Scotland). [ExP-46/MiP-0/BM-1]

Found this one with my 18 month old grandson on my back (his first trigpoint) - he was impressed with the view: lots of appreciative gurgling (from me!)

Went for walk around Deuchny Woods was easy enough to visit the Perth FBM and Upper Kinfauns Surface Block which are near to each other.

An FBM with a classic view overlooking the Firth of Tay and Friarton Bridge. But where are any nearby Geodetic FBs? G639 at Bridge of Earn is the nearest found to date.

Just caught it in the last of the light on the drive back down from the Cairngorms. Perth was looking good all lit up in her Sunday best. This games much easier when you use a GPS!
