Nice monument plus trig pillar and looking forward to revisiting Stranraer briefly for the first time in quite a good few years.

Small car park for the monument to SW. Pillar sits just off the high point of the hill, in the shadow of the somewhat larger trig - the monument. Top cap missing, no plug; all sight holes open. A very smooth screed finish. Extensive views, particularly good over Loch Ryan. With Alex and Tony.

I ran out of time so this was the last pillar of the day. Parked at the car park on the minor road to the south west. The field was very churned up by frisky bullocks who gave me a hard time but the weather held out leading to decent views.

Easy to access from car park to south-west and up stepped path to the Monument to Sir Andrew Agnew (an Intersected Station) which stands beside and dwarfs the pillar. In good condition although the plug is missing leaving the top open to the elements. A fine viewpoint.

Vgc pillar with massive looming castle-like monument beside it. FB faces east-ish with all sightholes open. Visible through, but bolt has some stones on it...Cap missing with no plug. Excellent 360 views once you stand on the trig. Otherwise, bit hemmed in by shrubbery. Monument is interesting and the original hillfort can be determined even despite today's rampant vegetation. Easy parking at the foot of the hill.

Scenery slightly obscured by bushes etc. Another trig dwarfed by its neighbour - a monument.

Agnew Monument tends to dwarf the trig. Hill bagging in the area today and thought that this was worth a look too.
