YSM108 Tannach Hill. Wasn't quite sure how to start this one as my plan from google earth didn't quite work out as I ended up someone's driveway. Went around the wee roads and found the proper track. Drove up it to approx 680m left at a good spot to park. Then walked further up the track and spotted a good treebreak. Followed this which was a bit boggy underfoot and it went straight to the pillar which is in the middle of a clearing.

Made a meal of getting to this one as I foolishly thought trainers would be enough for the terrain, luckily I got away with only damp feet and didnt get totally soaked. Took the car as far as I dared up the rough truck and parked just off the track about 0.40 miles from the pillar. Found a firebreak and followed it into the trees but chose the wrong firebreak so had to double back to the trig by using another firebreak. Found the pillar easily enough and managed to chose the correct firebreak to get back to the main track.

Fine cracking to surface of pillar; metal cap, deep letters. Large clearing at junction of rides, as per 1:25k map: easily found. From ESE, fenceline starting S of house: heathery but path much of the way.
