HISTORY: The pillar was completed on 10th April 1954 costing 33.6s.6d. In 1954 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NX99/T1 in the Dumfries secondary block. The flush bracket was levelled for height also in 1954. The trig point was last maintained by the OS in June 1988. SITE VISIT: Parked in Tynron Village Hall car park at NX805929. Followed mapped tracks to NX813939, and fences to summit. Pillar good but with horizontal crack near top. Spider retains OS centre cap with deep indented letters. Flush bracket faces SSW, compass measurement 195. Vented through sight hole on FB face. 360 panorama to surrounding hills.
