Class B listed structure, 1824. At top of Byres Hill. Internal spiral staircase to viewing parapet at top - no lighting and very dark when it's dark! Cut benchmark to RHS of the entrance. Last of 20 trigs bagged in Borders and Lothian areas today, with Alex Cameron.

Intended a short visit but found the gate open, scaled the dark corrie-fisted stairwell and enjoyed the truly magnificent 360view... Arthurs Seat perfectly aligned with the top window. Just a wee bit hairy on the way back down! Cool benchmark beside the door too. :-) I didn't expect to be awarding such a high mark to an Intersection but Hey-Ho.

Hopetoun Monument ..Magnificent 360view. :D
