Parked by the gate and walked up to Watsons Walls then up through the heather to the TP. Might have managed to get another TP today if we had driven this section. Still we got six today which was a decent haul. As views go, this was possibly the best of the six, bettered only by Ravensheugh Crags.

Managed to park near to the end of the public road on the line of the PROW then up the private road to the farmhouse. From here though the gate and followed the fence line to the pillar. Hill overgrown with heather and bracken, decent views.

Continued to drive up road (tarmac) from end of road (gated but opens) at NY793814 to property. Room to park without blocking drive or access but permission should be sought. No one home today so left note on dash board.

Drove along lane almost to gate for Watson's Wall and managed to turn round and park where a bridleway crosses the road. This lane is very narrow with no other spots to turn, so if you are unlucky enough to get to this point and find it already taken then it's a very long reversing job to get back to the last road junction. Good luck. Great trig though.

Short walk up from the end of the road. A number of vehicles and country types around today. I think the hounds were out somewhere as I could hear the huntsman's horn. Good views on a clear day.

Parked at Bannock Crag, just room for one car, road is good to that point. Short walk up to pillar. Moderate views, Cheviot & Cross Fell might have been visible north & south if the visibility had been better.

Parked in forest track entrance at NY757833. Bagged in conjunction with neighbouring Cairnglastenhope. Pillar in good condition. Spider retains OS centre cap with deep indented lettering. Flush bracket faces 209 SSW. Vented through west sight hole. The pillar was completed on 21st September 1951 costing 20.0s.0d. In 1953 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station NY86/20 is the Hexham block. The flush bracket was levelled for height also in 1953. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in July 1966. Open moorland with views to surrounding hills and forestry. Photographed 16/07/2008, GRP.

We parked to the south where the bridle track goes off to the north east. Walked up the road then followed the fence line to the trig. Good views. Plug with heavily indented lettering.
