Up here visiting the adjacent Triangulation Pillar. Prominent landmark and wonderful viewpoint. Seems to be well maintained.

Retrospective log now its on the database. Adjacent to the trig. Its an easy walk up the access track from the road to the north. Fabulous views in all directions, but especially towards the Solway. Even on a drizzly afternoon, its far better than being at work :)

Simple stroll up track. Decent views, nearby Tinnis Hill looking very striking for its height. Cut benchmark on West face of monument plinth.
