Drove almost all the way down, probably not a good idea, very bumpy. Water very close.

All intact. Barbed wire protects approach from beach. Best via field. Curious cows. Appears to have been a building in the corner of the field which is now destroyed and its roofs appears to be on the beach, over the barbed wire fence behind the pillar.

Visited on our return trip from Scotland. Great sunny day, motor bike racing on the sand flats next to trig. Parked by the field gate and hopped over the style, the trig is in the corner of the field next to the River Esk estuary.

Cap intact, generally good nick with only the Easterly sight open. Little bit drizzly but at least the heffers gave me time to take my snaps. Averaged out a trifle lowly 6metres in height - hey ho.

Redkirk Point ..could\'ve been a nicer day.

I arrived just as Clochandighter had finished taking photographs - pleasure to meet up with him by chance, and a delightful spot - good views of the Solway Firth, and the hills to the north and south of it.

In a corner of a field, buttressed by sea defences. Good condition. Big wind blowing and the tide was coming in fast, prompting a dire warning from a local. Very beautiful place, especially on a stormy afternoon. Would be good witha scope, loads of waders out there.
