Parked opposite a gate on the B7055 immediately west of the plantation. Decent track for the first 500 metres then rough pasture to the summit and just 2 fences to hop. Good going due to a month or so without any significant rain. Sunny and breezy at the top and good 360 views. Pillar still damaged but doesn't appear to be any worse than previous logs. An hour up and down including time for photos.

From minor road to SE. Good grassy ATV up wall from NT915310. After half a mile leave this for a gate @ NT 910315 and follow fence line NW (forest felled) on pasture. Several un-mapped fences to climb. Gate onto fell @ NT894322 - no path/trod from here - not too rough

P146. Went down track across from moto place and through forest. Parked at turning area. Then followed tree break to fields and then kept crossing fields and moorland to the trig in the mist. No views today. Cheers.

Parked at the forestry track opposite the motocross centre and followed the track until it curved left then crossed through the break in the trees. A bit wet underfoot in the long grass, but once across the fence at the other side, the grass was shorter due to the sheep and a much easier walk up to the trig. Trig base crumbling with iron work exposed. Concrete around the spider eroding too. Round trip of 3 1/2 miles and took 1 1/2 hours.

Parked on the B-road then up the track to Mountstewart. Keep to north around this then upward on damp moorland to damaged trig then had a look from other lower top on a lovely sunny afternoon.

Walked up with Mrs B on Leap Day. Damaged pillar especially around the base with crumbling concrete and visible angle iron internals. Cap is missing and no plug present. Good 360 views of the surrounding hills. Came up via Mountstewart. Round the back of the farm, through the gates and then followed the faint quadtrack.

Hazy skies but good views towards Tinto, the Lowthers and many a sinuous Southern Upland curve. Seems to have survived the last seven years surprisingly well judging by agentmancuso's photo.

Damaged pillar especially around the base with crumbling concrete and visible angle iron internals. FB faces NE-ish with SW/NW-ish sightholes open. Cap is missing and no plug present. Good 360 views of the surrounding hills. Came up via Mountstewart. Grumpy, but not GOML, farmer. Follow the quadtrack.

Came up from start of Maidengill track on other side of M74. Rough grazing. Good views of Tinto, Culter Fell, Dungavel, Cairn Table. A double celebration - my 500th trig & 100th cache.

pillar crumbling, presenting an odd profile with reinforcing bar exposed R of FB. No cap or plug. Mast nearby. Tussocky hill; quad track affording easy passage from Mountstewart (go round N side of buildings)

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 11th June 1949 costing 22.10s.3d. In 1950 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NS83/T38 in the Lanark secondary block. Flush bracket S5412 was levelled Class 2 for height, also in 1950. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in June 1978. Spider no longer has OS plug.
