Parked at Nigg carpark for a lovely walk in the sunshine to this. Last section is a little overgrown, surprised it's not visited more!

Called in here on my way to Pittodrie. Approached this from the south (Redmoss Road), to find the pillar (open cap, three sight-holes open) positioned on a grassy hump on the other side of a barbed wire fence in an overgrown area.

Parked at RedMoss W where there was a small entrance into the park and followed the path up to the hill. A small trail led up to the trig which is surrounded by gorse.

Parked in Tollohill Square. Trig well guarded by nettles and barbed wire. Lots of earth moving activity in yard to south East.

Visited this point many times as a small child before I knew what it's purpose was. I seem to remember another a mile or so to the south-west - which may have been a temporary reference point used during the formation of the adjacent housing estate.

I came up as this is also a YOSM, parking on the lane below and walking up. Not able to touch the trig point as it was the other side of a barbed wire fence. Good views down to Aberdeen from here.

Trig was in a fenced off and overgrown area but could be accessed by walking along the barbed wire fence from the path. Also did the nearby cache.

Its more of a view of light industrial estate than country park.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 20th June 1949 costing 10.2s.0d. In 1950 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NO89/T56 in the Aberdeen secondary block Another walk in the dark. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1952. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in June 1989. The 1:25K map shows this as Kincorth Hill.
