Parked in a pull in by a field gate to the North. Went through an empty field so not to disturb the sheep and new lambs. Fields are interconnected by gates anyway. Wet in places around the water troughs.

Walked in from Galston turning left before the roads depot the right at Drumdroch Farm then went up through the cut silage field up to trig. Good views over to Arrran, North Hill, Baidland right round to Corsehill :-)

Accessed from Hillhouse farm road (Drumdroch road closed). Handy parking at farm road end. Met farmer on track, he said to look out for fallen tree as a marker for trig location.

Good run through the fields to get to this trig which is somewhat oddly situated in a small enclosure surrounded by barbed wire. Great views on a lovely April day.

Good condition pillar with the exception of the top screed having a sizeable chunk knocked off it exposing the spider arms. Metalwork still in good shape, however. Cap present with sunken lettering. FB faces south-ish with S/E-ish sightholes still open. Surprisingly decent views all round, although I must echo clochandighter's rant about the barbed wire. Utter overkill. Easy wander up the mapped farm track and across a pasture field.

Revisited (bad record keeping !). I thought the place looked vaguely familiar.

Visited to record FB number. HISTORY: Pillar completed 10th October 1947 costing 10.2s.4d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station NS44/T37 in 1950. Levelled for height in 1962. Last maintained by the OS in October 1976. SITE VISIT: The well protected pillar is still in good condition. The spider retains it original stamped font OS plug and the flush bracket faces south. In the unlikely event that I ever come to power, the use of barbed wire will be outlawed. This pillar stands at the western end of a wedge shaped grazing field where the tip of the isosceles triangle has been fenced off with copious amounts of barbed wire for no obvious reason. Proved difficult to photograph because of cramped conditions due to barbed wire and hedges. Most memorable part of this expedition was the bus getting water bombed as it passed through a rough housing scheme in nearby Galston. I am sure nice people live in Galston too. Photographed 3/06/1997, GRP.
