Log #104. Followed thatbatthing's route - Cathedral Sq, Wishart St past the back of the infirmary, then hung a right down Firpark St. Benchmark is fairly easily spotted, and in surprisingly decent condition, with chipped corners the worst of the damage. Only a flying visit, as I must have looked suspicious to a passer-by, who wanted to know what I was up to. To be fair, I was wearing black jeans and a black hoody, so can hardly blame him!

Location against Necropolis wall.
Closer view.

Got to this FBM via Cathedral square, left into Wishart st and right into Firpark st. Follow path on right next to Necropolis wall right to FBM. FBM slighty damaged but not too bad considering area. Strong smell of boiling hops wafting up from nearby Tennents brewery. Oofft ! !

Found in the nettles, but I made the mistake of just following the T:UK App map and didn't find it in the Necropolis, so it was rather a long walk around as I didn't fancy jumping over the wall in to the rubbish the other side.

Pedalled into City Centre to pick this up. Found easily. In good condition considering location. Punctured outside Necropolis.

Wet afternoon in Glasgow. Trig popular with dog walkers and in decent condition.

Walked up from High St railway station,FBM pillar easily located on the outside of the Eastern side of the Necropolis wall. The Necropolis itself is worth a visit as there are a number of elaborate & interesting structures to see.

Slightly damaged FBM pillar. Bolt is scuffed and no height plaque. Corners very chipped otherwise in good condition. OS plaque on the front and older OS plaque on the side. Easy access but outside Necropolis wall with no access from inside (short of louping the wall)

All top corners battered off and no height tag. The wall seemed to interfere with my gps.

Necropolis ..well chipped.

Outside the perimeter wall of the Necropolis. It is possible for most to climb over from inside. Climbing back over the wall might prove a little trickier since the drop is greater on the outside.

Not actually in the Necropolis, but up against an outside wall. It's taken a few knocks over the years.

Slight damage which probably comes with the territory.
