Parked in mapped CP (large layby) to S. Gate intimidating in SW field corner with its strand of barbed wire but top bar lifts and the gate opens easily - just be sure to shut it - its a strange contraption.

Visited after dark having got the bus out from the centre of town. Managed fences easily enough. Only took a couple of flash photos. No views (obviously) but had hoped to see Aberdeen at night and possibly Girdleness but these blocked out by trrees. Spider cap with lettering in place .

Loved the name of this one. Parked in Scotstown Moor LNR car park and did an unnecessary triangle in search of a geocache before the trig. Eventually ended up at the trig field and the fence was easily crossed. Just as I was photographing the trig the house owner came out with his dogs but he just got on with playing with them in the garden. Lots of sheep so beware if you have a dog with you.

"Corse Hill" on map. Built 1st July 1949. Tertiary station in Block NO89, Aberdeen. Pillar in VGC. Spider has an OS centre plug with shallow engraved lettering which must pre-date the pillar. Flush bracket faces west. RHS sighting hole open, others plugged, but LHS & back holes opening. In a grazing field. Original visit 09/03/1987. Revisited and photographed 11/05/2004, GRP.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 1st July 1949 costing 10.2s.0d. In 1950 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NO89/T48 in the Aberdeen secondary block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1969. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in May 1989. 1:25K map shows this as Corse Hill. Visited in darkness while on a business trip to Aberdeen. No photos taken.
