Log #463. Marshy scrubland, ancient GOML sign from Dupplin Estates high on tree on approach from south. Pillar in good condition, indented cap intact. Spooked a few deer while hunting for the pillar, just as the light was starting to fade. Brakes failed on car while driving towards Tibbermore trig, ended up having to get recovery wagon to Dunblane and then the train back to Glasgow. [ExP-317/MiP-38/Rev-6/BM-31/IS-50/Other-21]

Good condition pillar located on scrubby land. FB faces north-ish with moss encroaching up the pillar covering all sightholes. Cap present with sunken lettering. Not really any views. Accessed along the mapped road to the south.

A boggy walk in from the south but only a few hundred yards and it's also classified as a hill which seems a bit bizzare.

Road from south buried under trees, horse and scrub. You can park directly at the entrance(1 car) and still follow 'road' till open scrub appears on the left . Wander to left a little to find trig skulking in small clump of low tree/bushes. Money under flush bracket, I added to it.

Success at fourth attempt. Cycled from Guildtown, north of Perth by W.Huntingtower, Tibbermore and Balgowan. Access gate from Gask Ridge somewhat obscured. Trig easy to miss among birch.

I got caught up in the road closures for the T in the park getting to this one. Parked at end of the track but walked parallel to it as it was too overgrown. Easy walk across the moor land after the woods.

Found this pillar whilst getting the virtual geocache here. Nice easy walk along an old 4x4 path/firebreak and then diagonal through the heather for an easy spot.

The only good pointer to whether we had parked in the right spot was the gate but this leads to a quite overgrown and branch overhung way in. However, this route is much drier than the boggy ground off the track where the pillar sits. The last pillar of a great day out with Father Ted and Griefmiester, back to Comrie for a curry!

Last trig of the day for us before heading back to the hostel to make a giant curry. We were surprised how difficult this one was to reach given that it is also a YOSM geocache trig which are normally more accessible. Got there in the end after picking our way up the overgrown track.

Parked at wrong gate so started up wrong track. Not a fan of retracing steps so pressed on hopefully--then discovered I had left GPS co-ordinates with OS Exp in car. Big expanse of boggy moor with heather and low growing silver birch trees, easy for a pillar to discreetly conceal itself so was very pleased to eventually find this.

Didn't like the look of the parking at the track end, so parked at the gate a wee bit further along the road. The track is becoming overtaken by gorse but picked my way along and followed the bearing across the last bit of boggy ground to the trigpoint.

Parked at the bottom of the track on the map and followed a faint path through the trees. Spotted trig amongst the heather

It takes a fair bit of imagination to visualise the track in from the south even when you're on it, but no difficulty getting to the slightly lost feeling pillar.

Walked up a kind of a track and cut across frozen bog land with 100m to go as I followed to Roe Deer to trig. Spooked a snipe or woodcock at the trig which scared the hell out of me. Not much of a view but nice wee sunny winters walk. Cheers.

delighted to find it as I failed previous day, not checking far enough west of the overgrown track and without internet access to be able to check if it was still here or gone. FB facing north, OS plug with deep indented letters. pleasant open heathery birchy moorland.

Difficult find this, situated as it is within the heather and many small silver birch trees successfully camouflaging it, but dogged determination paid off.

Parked on the bridge over the River Earn on the road to Findo Gask. This made a nice circular walk through the Cairnie Woods to visit Keirwoodhead and Westmuir pillars. Westmuir is in the middle of the heather along a path marked private which has not been used for a very long time.
