Park at Benry bridge, head into the forest following the electric poles, quite boggy. Trig point is mossy but adds a lovely touch.

Visit by Debs. Trig in middle of dense forest.Took a bit longer to find. went up near county boundary signs on main road. Very boggy underfoot, just headed for highest point and found in clearing. As per visit below, May be best coming from road to the south near reservoir, and follow power lines directly to trig.

Approach as per previous logs. Spotted some fresh footprints, which I thought unusual, but I see a fellow trigger pre dated my visit by 4 days.

Parking allowed by model plane enthusiasts just off road to SW of pillar. Well equipped shipping container to hang out in. Back up road and turned right at county boundaries signs, duck under branches and it's a clear, wet stroll for a couple of minutes to pillar below power lines. Very little ascent. Mossy pillar and central metalwork in mint condition - it leaps out at you.

Easty to find, but no view. So it goes with forest trigs.

Easy walk up fire break from NT005582 (marked Benry bridge on map). Parked roadside, by over-grown, old gate leading to firebreak.

All available possible nearby parking spots taken by machinery undertaking drainage works so parked at the wind farm entrance to the north. Tree break on the road at the border signs appears overgrown, the pillar is located on the line of a 11kVa power line so may be better following this line up from the minor road to the south.

very mossy, very peaceful, a most tranquil spot. with four rides running of this spot, after wandering around a bit, I bet nearly wandered of back down the wrong one before I checked myself, having left my compass in the car and after couple hundred metres from car wondering if I should go back for it!!

Good condition pillar with some minor damage to the top corners and moss covered. Also, very black as noted previously. FB faces west-is with the south-ish sighthole open only. Cap present with raised lettering. Parked in the model flyers car park after asking permission. Interestingly, the chap who said "go right ahead and the trig's up that ride there" got shouted at by an elder member of the club about letting "non-flyers use the car park". Nice to see consistency there!

Raised lettered Cap with North and East sights open. The two Eastern corners are chewed away on this very mossy, sheltered Pillar. Parked at the County border and felt a touch of Narnia as I pushed through the first 50 feet of trees before the mossy, squelchy avenue opened up. An obviously well used trig with bones predated on the top by some big bird! :D

Looks like the model plane flyers have had a chance of heart. See notice.

Access easy enough from county boundary, as indicated below. Stupidly, I forgot about this and headed straight in through the trees. It was getting dark too, which didn't help, but got there in the end. Fair bit of moss growing on trig, no doubt due to solid sitka wind shelter.

Easy walk on forest ride. Trig next to telephone lines at junction of fire breaks. Saw model plane fliers to the south of the area where i parked but they didn't goml me.

Pillar in good condition but top is starting to chip away. Spider cap has small raised letters - not the original in one so old. FB faces WNW. One (back) sighting hole open. Views no nowhere, at junction of firebreaks surrounded by tall connifers which were just saplings on my first visit in 1985. Boggy on all approaches. No problems from toy plane GOMLs for me, I walked here from West Calder then home (Edinburgh, 14 hours in all) via a further five trigs. Built 23rd August 1939. Tertiary station in Block NT18, Dunfermline. Revisited and photographed 29/05/2005, GRP.

Deep in the dreaded sitka. Intact, but missing a couple of corners, no views. Would have been a lovely view of Tinto before the trees. Access from the Lanarkshire border via a wet and very slippery ride. Parked in access road to the afore mentioned car park. No "nice" people about!

Look for the gate by the side of the road at NT 0048 5816 (right on the regional border), where a corridor between the trees leads up to the pillar. Short, easy walk, although slightly boggy. Good condition pillar, with spider cap. No views, except for the trees. I originally parked in a big, nearly empty car park just along the opposite side of the road, and was immediately GOML'd by a couple of guys flying their model plane. They insisted that the car park was for model plane flyers only, and they'd padlock the gates to block me in if I left my car there, even for the ten minutes it would take to get to the trig and back. Nice people.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 23rd August 1939 costing 5.5s.9d. In 1947 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NT18/T2 in the Dunfermline secondary block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1955. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in 1978. Designated woodland. The trees were just saplings in 1985. The spider plug retained is not the original type for a pillar that old. Revisited 29/05/2005.
