OS records this destroyed August 1966. Since then a quarry has been dug and there's a lot of water where the pillar once stood.

There is a gate to the old quarry and path towards the north end on the road, with a night pull in for parking. Over the gate and along the path to the foreshore.

Crossing field from SE gets you within about 200m of ex location. Computed 1950, levelled 1961, dest 8/66 according to OS trig archive.

Ex location is centre of pic, a long way down...
1:2500 map extract (1959) (This seems further W than my GPSr was pointing)

Only a huge hole in the ground where it should be. Google earth shows the existance of a road running across the top at one time. I can only imagine the view when this was the top now its probably the deepest part. The view from bottom would be pretty dismal I would imagine.

Amazingly, since the last log, the pillar hasn't magically reappeared. Fantastic views from Craigie Hill over Kilmarnock and the general west coast though. Well worth a stop if the weather is on your side.

The whole summit and heart of the hill has gone.. a pretty sad way to end the day! :-(

I knew it had gone, but stopped to pay my respects from the quarry edge.

This pillar has not been marked on OS maps for a good few years. The reason? Its location appears to lie within a quarry. Got to the edge of the quarry but the trig points location was still 250m away. Couldn't approach any closer.

Craigie Looking across the quarry to the supposed location of the trig pillar. It should have been 250m from the photo.
