Walked up field from main road. Only 190m. Nice and easy but unfortunately this was when it started to pour. A quick photo and away again.

As others have done parked in track entrance across the road and took an easy stroll up to the pillar. On my way to see Alloa Athletic 1-0 Airdrie United - gradually getting through Scotland's football grounds, and there's usually a trig en route to go and investigate. Also called in at the Woolpack, Tillicoultry, for a great pint of beer.

Spider retains OS centre cap with shallow engraved letters. Flush bracket faces east, ~96 across field. East and west sightholes open, innards blocked with debris. Views include Dumglow, Tillyrie Hill, West Lomond, Benarty Hill.

Parked at road end to SE of pillar. Met landowner out walking his Jack Russels. Very friendly chap who was interested in the history of trigpoints and what I was doing there. Warned him he may occasionally see other strange types lurking in his field in future and he has no GOML issues at all.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed in November 1943 costing 5.10s.3d. In 1947 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NT18/T36 in the Dunfermline secondary block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1954. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in August 1987.
