Easy find using measurment from iron post, on an unkempt roadside verge with good parking opposite. Covered by 2 pieces of slate and a geocache. Dug away encroaching soil/vegetation etc and replaced slates and cache.

Parking directly opposite. Berntsen has a geocache and two slates covering it, so easy find. Not bad views either.

Block on wall mentioned previously now on ground so old measurements don't apply. Very easy in winter as it's under slates, sure to be more challenging in summer. Didn't have time to measure from the field access gate to the left as wife was waiting patiently in car with that 'at least it's harmless as a hobby look'.

Had a hunt for this in the past but no luck. It's now been uncovered by geocachers and has a slate and container on top. Nice one.

Tricky find, well buried, but managed to match up the old photos. Now has a slate ontop as a marker.

stood in the pouring rain for 20 mins as the cars thundered bye along this wee road. Knew what I was looking for but just couldn't see it. Didn't have my usual assortment of pokey sticks in the car. I'll be back.

Road side of hedge. Paced out using Agentmancuso's directions, covered by long grass but found easily. 1.25m back from road edge

Berntsen in excellent condition by road. agentmancuso's directions are completely spot on. Once you find the concrete block with iron stub, you're laughing. My GPS had said it was over the fence, but no. Right beside the road. Watch for traffic. Oddly busy road full of shiny 4x4s. Good views to Dumgoyne considering it's in a bit of a dip.

Closer to the road than I expected but exposed and in good nick once you clear the undergrowth.

At last - found at 4th attempt, and only with help from Iain! It's 5.96m from the tall iron post near the gate, and 1.15m from the stone block with iron stub visible in photo.

This is one of the five Trigs around Mugdock Country Park, easy to visit them in a few hours. Quite easy to find this one if you have a copy of a photo from this site. Just opposite a handy place to park.

Remembered the sketch this time. Its about halfway between wall (worried it might have fallen on it) and road.

Too much vegetation and no sketch. GR suggests it was over the dyke not on the verge, but I expect its just my old GPS error. If over the wall, there has been a lot of disturbance of the earth. Must dig out the sketch. Very attractive location though.
