Parked in Faifley just to west of pillar by the shops. Up grassy slope covered in rubbish, past big flock of feeding goldfinches and pillar dead ahead in heavy undergrowth. Easy stroll, views disappointing.



Trig collies bag again.

Log #332. Parked on Lawmuir Crescent, then followed track up to pylon. Trig doesn't look too worse for wear, other than a chipped corner and the cap missing. [ExP-240/MiP-28/Rev-2/BM-21/IS-31/Other-10]

Eastern edge of Faifley, Glasgow suburb. Parked on edge of housing estate and walked up through long wet grass - just taken my gaiters off - doh! Trig getting quite overgrown, trampled down some vegetation but no gardening tools with me. FB facing wire fence, top edges and corners all chipped; cap missing, no plug; all sight holes closed though not certain on rear one. Good views through 360degs.

Another interesting urban trig (right on the edge of urbanisation though). Glad we had wellies on to tramp in from the North East. Interesting views.

Pillar in fair condition, urban wear and tear. Spider centre open. Flush bracket faces ENE, ~71 into fence. Presumed vented through buried sw sight hole as the others are plugged. 360 open outlook includes the overtopping hills to the north and across Greater Glasgow to the east and south. Photographed 6/10/2012.

Cap missing and all sights closed with minor nibbling on the top corners of this urbanish BSM style pillar. Pretty dodgy checking the sights with summers nettles hiding broken bottle fragments around the mossy base. The overhead pylons make a pleasant hum - I expect flourescent tubes would be like light-sabres up here at night! :D

White Hill ..not so white.

Slightly damaged pillar with a corner chipped off. Otherwise, very good condition considering its locale. Cap missing and no plug. FB faces east-ish and no sightholes open. Excellent views over Glasgow.

Easy trig. The plug is missing (hence slightly damaged), but the FB is there and OK. Just keep walking up the hill following the obvious paths. At the top of the hill is some fencing with bushes in front of it. It is hidden near the pylon next to the fence.

A somewhat forgotten and neglected trig, although it has had a coat of whitewash at some time in its life, and offers some evocative urban views, well photographed by Iainmac
