Pillar very close to the road. Jumped through the trees and heather and there it was.

Log #173. An easy trample from the road to the north. Had some great fun on the hairpins on the way up from Boat o' Brig. The indented cap is intact, but no view from the pillar. [ExP-145/MiP-3/Rev-2/BM-11/IS-10/Other-2]

Indented cap intact.

Easy find only 140m from parking with only a wee drainage ditch to cross

While doing a part of the Speyside Way noted I could get this one. Took a bearing from the road junction and hey presto.

Parked close by. Area of forest here is now felled making sighting of pillar easy and walking on ground diffucult. Pillar has remnants of white paint and retains plug, large deep indented lettering.

Had a look for it at night but forgot my torch Doh! Got within 80 yrds of it but couldn't see it for the trees! Went back this morning in daylight and bagged it!

The trig, easier to find in daylight! Not far off the tar road just off the Speyside way. Around 90yrds from the road.

Tooks some finding in the light, but its still pretty white so not to bad. In woodland, near a road off the drive known as the Speyside Way.
