3 x NovAtel (has Leica lost the contract?) domes on the building just S of the summit outcrop. From the given GR I assume the one at the NW corner of the roof is Stirling 1 although difficult to tell as they are all close together.

now 3 Leica domes in place of the older conical antennae. 3rd one at end of building presumably a standby or backup unit. Also a p30m summit. Track from locked gate to east

A quick wander up after an interview (successful) in Stirling. Very clear day.

Certainly the best views and location of any Active Station I've been to yet. Lovely spot with excellent long distance views on a blustery evening.

Conical antenna on a concrete building. Woo! Parked at bottom of track heading up the hill. Easy walk. Really nice views from the top through the blue-tinted haze. Sauchie Crag's white pillar visible with the naked eye from here.

Pleasant enough saunter up the beaten road - warned to stay on the road by red-faced grouse-beater at the bottom. Looks like 4 antennae to me.. spanking 360 view.. our building has the absolute peak with the other masts lower down. The lighthouse message on the door is washed out and illegible now.

Visited this last year hill last year did not realise it was part of the GPS System, had to go back just to get pictures. Parked at bottom of access road 10 mins to top.

Easy walk up to the antenna farm. Obvoous active station with 4 cone things on a building - complete with notice from Northern Lights confirming its the active station. Good view down the Forth to Edinburgh and the Lammermuirs.

On a hill to the west of and over-looking Stirling. Walked up the farm track to the transmitters at the top and found a notice on a door of one of the buildings confirming it was the Active Station. There was an antenna array outside which I presume to be it. Different from Edinburgh Active Station though. Photos to follow.

Didn't know this was a station when I was up here, but remember wondering what all the equipment was for while I ate lunch a few yards away. Not sure that 'good' is the right word for the condition of the site - 'ugly' might be better. With Fiona.
