From the lovely village of Collieston. Well defined tracks and accurate with OS 1:50000 map right to the pillar.

Probably best not tackled at dusk but hey that's what happened, easy track most of the way - last 300m not as easy but it was dark by then! Overall not bad.

Parked in the carpark to the south west of the trig and followed a track most of the way. A long tough walk as the track was waterlogged with all the recent rain. Low cloud meant not much of a view.

A tedious walk in from the north. Missed the fork in the path and had to backtrack. Mrs Dan expected some nice sand and dunes here, all we saw were grassed over dunes and the sea was nowhere near. We had walked in from the north and then tried to park the motorhome in the southern car park to see some sand dunes, but this car park has height restrictions so we gave up as a "bad job".

P97. Parked at NNR car park with handy toilets then just followed wee tracks through the dunes until one went to the pillar. A pretty straightforward walk in a stunning location.

Walked in from the Waterside car park and returned via the cliffs and Forvie Church remains.

Nice spot giving panoramic views of the Sands of Forvie nature Reserve. A snow-covered Tap O' Noth visible in the distance.

Clearly not visited by triggers - had to do some positive gardening to get at the FB. A bit confusing to get to since the paths are designed to avoid the middle of the nature reserve and the one marked onthe map doesn't seem to exist any more. Spider plug still in place as well.

vgc, metal cap, deep letters, grassy summit of stable dunes, nice coast view. From WSW, car park, track forks off at 011269 and is easy to follow, trig visible from 500m away.

The date of my first visit is lost to me. I lived close by and was a regular visitor to Forvie NNR as well as a volunteer there over a 10 year period. I remeber the trig point being in good condition but don't have any photos

Trig pillar in good condition. Spider retains OS plug with stamped lettering. Flush bracket faces west. Sands of Forvie is a beautiful nature reserve. An outstanding beach-dune complex has developed over the last 4,000 years, forming one of the largest areas of blown sand in Scotland. Yet the OS found that the highest point had ground solid enough to build a trig on. Visited and photographed 30/07/2001, GRP.
