Really easy to find sitting next to the road on a fenceless golf course. There is even ample parking opposite. Now if only other trigs had such nice manicured grass around them. But there again I would miss the nettles and whins.

Very easy, drove all the way to it. Thought you would need permission as it was a golf course trig but the road follows the golf course all the way up the hill.

I do love golf course trigs. makes me feel like painting a green jacket on one sometime. I first had this urge on a golf course trig at Pollock in Glasgow in March 1999. deep indented letters in the surviving spider plug.

Viewed from road whilst passing - the golf course was very busy indeed! (Jubilee Holiday Monday)

Playing in the Texas Scramble at Oldmeldrum, came across this trig next to the 2nd tee/17th green. Being on the highest point of the course it gives good views westerly towards Bennachie and hills beyond. NB: On the eastern fringe of the course next to the 14th fairway stands a large stone called the Groaner, which is also the emblem of the club.
