Trig found in good condition, weather unfortunately a little wet and drizzly so limited views. Easy find near road to Killantringan lighthouse. Cap still present with raised lettering and trig in good condition.

Walk across from lane to lighthouse the area in not fenced off from the road so it's just a short walk south from the road to the trig point,but the ground is boggy and rough.

As others have done found a parking spot to the north-west and followed the 'path' up to the pillar. Remains in good condition and retains a raised lettered plug. Lovely all round views.

Vgc pillar atop Killantringan Fell. Easy access from the road to the north. Clear path up. FB faces east-ish with south-ish sighthole open only. Cap present with raised lettering. Superb views all round. Ireland clearly visible beyond Killantringan lighthouse which is also worth a look.
