Log #233. Easy walk up from the east. I did notice the two pairs of footprints to and from the pillar and thought they looked quite fresh. Track to pillar from crossroads is a bit soggy after the recent snow, and there are a few small trees across the track in various places. Not much in the way of the views from the pillar, but you can just about see Ben Rinnes and the Convals. [ExP-181/MiP-9/Rev-2/BM-13/IS-22/Other-6]

Nice easy walk up a snowy forest road. The area round the trig has been clear felled making it easy to see but more difficult to stumble to. Sorry to have missed a fellow trigger but was on Hill of Mulderie by that time. It would have been great to say hello.

Found a road which led to a free parking spot beside a gate into the forest. Walked up from there bye the earthcache and followed good tracks in a circle to a clearing. Then followed an old overgrown track at forest edge straight to the trig. Nice wee afternoon power walk.

Second visit. For photographs and GPS readings. HISTORY: Pillar completed 14th September 1952 costing 6.10s.0d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station NJ45/T8 in 1953. Levelled for height in 1974. Last maintained by the OS in June 1987. SITE VISIT: Approached from the east. Parked in forest track entrance at NJ374543. Direct route along track to junction at NJ361545, then beeline SSW across felled woodland to trig. Pillar in good condition. Spider centre plugged with tar. Flush bracket face ENE, ~77. Vented through NW sight hole. Any views long since lost to surrounding woods but some fairly open skies with immediate woodland cut down and replanted.

vgc, metal cap deep letters, E end of wide ride, ~no view. Was interviewed by a Forest Enterprise researcher on my return. Luckily I'd resisted the temptation to drive in thru the open gate

In among trees and covered in moss, wouldn't have found it without GPS! About 120 yrds from the road.

The trig itself Among trees and covered in moss. Quite a long walk through the forest but no view for trees.
The GPS at the trig! I wouldn't have found it without this puppy!
