Plenty of parking beside the industrial units at the aerodrome. Walked along the track to the south and then the west of the runway. Last bit from the corner of the trees was over a harvested field. Beehive still there. No bees and worse still, no honey.

Parked at big layby on south side of A94 opposite access to Gairdrum Cottages. Almost exactly 1 mile to the trig point, my 2nd of 6 today. Perhaps the most exciting aspect of this trig point is being requested to look left, right and up as you pass the end of the runway. Today there were no planes flying, perhaps due to the windy conditions. A broken bee hive sits next to the trig point.

Had reccied this out and all seemed Ok so drove through airport and along track past Wellfield 'cottages' to the east of the runways and north until road bends. Trig less than 2 mins walk along field boundary, buried in only piece of gorse to be found in the area. Alternatively park at the airport and enjoy a 15 minute walk with the opportunity to duck as the planes take off and land.

Encroaching gorse
Back to car. Pillar in gorse behind wooden box of unknown purpose.

Had a nice walk around the woods grabbing some geocaches, before heading off along the line of the ploughed and very muddy field to the trigpoint. As usual Mr TJR didn't get even a dot of mud on him and I was covered.

Log #48. Approached from the east, via Redfield. Simple walk over to the trig, which is beginning to get swamped with gorse. Managed to beat some of it back enough to get a photo of the FB. Interesting spot. [ExP-47/MiP-0/BM-1]

Trig hidden in gorse.

Used the track from the north. There is a useful bit of metal with which to beat the gorse down to view the flush bracket.

Easy access by bike from Scone via Muirward Wood. There is a grassy track, popular with horse riders around the airfield perimeter. I am glad that access to the pillar survived the authoritarian craze of the past decade.

Walked up from St.Martin's village, and took the wide green footpath towards Scone across large fields. Beautiful open countryside with fine views; I spotted the pillar from about a mile distant, and trudged across and up a field to reach it positioned as it is close to Perth Aerodrome. Lots of small black slugs on the wide footpath:they actually looked quite attractive!

vgc, no cap or plug, SE of fence & ditch, edge of stubble. Frosty dawn, no sign of life from the hives. Simple access from N via green-signposted footpath. Interesting bird sightings: a Woodcock got up off the stubble; heard a Waxwing fly over (apparently a few about at the moment); Pinkfeet calling.

Warning on access road about low flying aircraft, but weather too foul for planes or bees to be flying. Spider centre missing.

Tattie field in front separating pillar from airfield. Pillar VGC. Spider has plug with indented font. FB faces 126, SE across field. Vented through RHS sighting hole.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 27th March 1950 costing 12.15s.1d. In 1951 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NO02/T61 in the Perth secondary block. Flush bracket S6016 was levelled for height in 1953. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in October 1986. I dodged in from the north finding no security other than a cast iron notice.
