Handy parking at Nether Whitecleuch then via Whiteside Hill to the pillar. Rather wet underfoot in places despite recent dry weather. Decent 360 degree views.

Approached from the SE, from the high point of the Leadhills - Wanlockhead road. Some nice ups and downs over 3 Dewey Donalds, then perfunctory moorland to the trig. Don't think the damage has got any worse over recent years. Splendid views to Cairn Table, Tinto, Culter Fell & the Lowthers. Back via ridge of Hunt Law.
