No change in condition from previous visit. I've recapped the pillar with a PETG replacement.

Log #207. Simple walk along from main Cathkin Braes car park. Lots of activity on a pleasant Sunday afternoon. Quiet at the pillar though - there are remnants of a fire and numerous scorched beer cans. There is some graffiti on the rear sides of the pillar, and one corner is chipped. The cap is missing.

A lovely day for a easy walk along Cathin Braes. The sun was shining and the visibility good - a little heat haze.

Unexpectedly nice views. Thru with a bus load for cup semi-final. Good stroll out to the trig.

Easy walk to this one from the delights of Castlemilk. Not a bad view though.

The cap is missing with all sights open.. the BSM flush bracket and area have been improperly beaten up with fading graffiti and signs of a recent fire at the base... *Pillar by firelight* might make a nice photo. :-)

Windlaw ..a bit beaten-up :-(

Third visit. For photographs and GPS reading. SITE VISIT: Pillar and FB showing signs of vandalism including recent graffiti. Spider centre open. Flush bracket faces southwest, ~231. All sight holes open, innards blocked with debris. Local vermin have left their cider and lager cans behind. The FB damage is old, possibly done by the forefathers of the present day lowlife, if they ever knew them.

Easy walk up field from the entrance on Carmunnock Road (south of the pillar). Glorious views across Glasgow and hills to the south. Lived up to its name though. Blustery! Few dings and bashes near the top. Definite angle-grinder fun on the plate.

On boundary of "Ardencraig Woodland Planting" area of Cathkin Braes Country Park and arable field. Spider centre gone. All sighting holes open but they are only just above ground level.

Battered FB. I've never seen one like it. On the edge of Cathkin Braes Country Park, though you'd never know if it wasn't for the sign.

No cap or plug, top chipped, S above numbers, FB criss-crossed as if by angle grinder, legible. In S-N hedge near SE cnr of pasture, nice view.

Trig 7 of 13 for the day. First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 15th April 1946 costing 7.17s.9d. In 1947 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NS77/T76 in the Glasgow secondary block. Flush bracket S3677 was levelled for height in 1967. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in September 1971. Flush bracket badly damaged.
