A straightforward find. Up the side road to Ballochy from where the top of the pillar is just visible at this time of the year in its containing field which has recently been harvested. I tramped up through the stalks to find the pillar's cap in place with shallow lettering, three sight-holes open, and one hidden.

Pillar completed 14th August 1949. Secondary station in Block NO89, Aberdeen. Trig pillar in good condition. Spider retained OS centre cap with stamped lettering. Flush bracket WSW facing, was partially buried and needed dug out. Pathfinder 298 implied that this pillar should be on a field boundary. The boundary is long gone and the trig now stands isolated in an arable field. Due consideration to avoid crop damage should be taken when appoaching this one. Visited and photographed 19/05/1999, GRP.
