Easy to access once you get through the maze of minor roads. Curtains twitching as I visited.

Looking good, surrounded by freshly cut grass. Decent condition, got the feeling of being watched though.

Good condition pillar in a little park with viewpoint rose and monument "thing". Trig not quite on the summit but amazing views along the firth nonetheless. FB faces west-ish with east-ish sighthole open only. Cap present with sunken lettering. Pillar whitewashed with FB painted black. Views....Meikle Bin, Carleatheran, Ben Lomond, Wallace Monument, Dumyat, Ben Cleugh, Grangemouth refinery (quite impressive from up here!), Cairnpapple Hill (Neolithic burial mound), Forth rail bridge and Arthur's Seat....fantastic!

Cap intact, strangely black FlushBracket with only the East sight open. Within the Wallacestone Memorial Park - Trees obscure the refinery at this time of year and a strange "height-rose" (dont they usually display distance?) beside the neighbouring William Wallace totem. Kiddie play-park too :D

Wallacestone ..a halo around the William Wallace totem? ;-)
