Walked up to trig from Lochore Country Park on a Saturday morning of fairly descent weather. Despite it being only 356m high it sure makes an outstanding viewpoint if the weather is in your favour like today's. Views from the top ranged from Schiehallion & Lochnagar down to the Bass Rock and it was great to see the Ochils from a different angle!

Returned at the end of the week to take in my last Fife Marilyn and a 5th trig point, having climbed 4 others on Monday. Parked at NT169970 and followed steps up to a track. I saw a couple of folk coming straight down the hill and thinking to myself "never assume that they are on the right route...", I started up a (very) faint path toward them. Sure enough they were 2 forestry people who had been checking out the new path further up. We exchanged pleasantries, discovered that we had some things in common and I continued upwards until I rejoined the track and just had to do a short dog-leg to gain the gate onto the hill. Easy walk to the summit and the trig point. Views today somewhat marred by the haze.

HELPFUL info. - a start point grid ref. - NT 1590 9696 - opposite marked track Ladath Stripe to SSE. Steps lead up the hill after which there are several ways up. Not knowing the way, I meandered up a nice gentle track but felt it was a long way round so took one of the more direct dirt tracks back - suicidally steep, glad of poles. The point to aim for is the new walker's gate in the fence on the ridge at NT 1584 9730 from where a lovely moorland path leads direct to the trig

Third visit. Special occasion to mark the celebration of Rob Woodall bagging his final Ordnance Survey triangulation pillar. Many other big names from the trig point bagging fraternity were present too. Bagging S3140, Benarty Hill in Fife means that Rob has visited all 6190 surviving triangulation pillars in Great Britain. That puts my humble score of 2338 (as at 16/04/2016) trig pillars visits into insignificance. There were about thirty baggers on Benarty Hill today. Biggest surprise was representation from the Ordnance Survey with a presentation to Rob - of the brand new flush bracket (OSBM.12394). Congratuations Rob!

Log #307. From Lochgelly Meadows car park (free), though there is space for a car or two at NT166974. Up the steps, following the track along the treeline, then over the false summit and to the trig. Three gliders to keep us company, along with 30-odd other folk to celebrate Rob's final OSGB pillar. Very enjoyable afternoon and great turnout for the event. After one dram (or three), a few of us headed west for the P30 before cutting south to the road and then past the colliery tower back to the car park. Good hill, and a couple of extra points for the brilliant occasion. [ExP-223/MiP-23/Rev-2/BM-18/IS-31/Other-10]

Then went further to get more caches then back to trig to wait for Rob and the others to arrive. A great day and so happy to be part of the celebrations. Good views from the trig and loved watching the gliders coming in close.

This pillar is beautifully set on Benarty Hill. Cement-filled cap, upon which was sat a Czech Republic kc10 coin with a handsome engraving of Brno cathedral on one side. I left it there. Also, as I was admiring the views and studying the coin, a glider drifted silently above me, and in response to my wave I was rewarded with waves from the two 'pilots'. Surprisingly quiet up here for Easter Monday on such a sunny day. My 500th logged pillar.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed in October 1943 costing 8.7s.6d. Later in 1943 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station NT18/9 in the Dunfermline Block. It was refixed as same in 1983. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1966. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in March 1983. Fantastic views over Fife, the Lothians, the Lomond Hills, Kinross-shire etc. Well worth the climb up, down and around grassy clumps and marsh on top.
