From Cullen to Portsoy on the coastal path. At Logie Head, followed the path up towards Logie House and cut off along field edge straight to Logie Head Trig with its stunning views. Back same way to coastal path. Next detour off path was to Findlater Castle, an airy place but absolutely fantastic. The next section of coastal path said closed but we followed it anyway, opting for field edge where coastal path was overgrown or looked a bit like it may have fallen down the cliff. Where short section of field edge fence runs S, we crossed it and followed coastal path down to Sandend with its idyllic beach. Continued on past Foul Hole, turning R before Westerwards Croft. Past .52 and towards Arnbath. Just before farm there is a gate and walked, too close for comfort to house windows, to mast. Few paces into field and done. Back same way to rejoin Coastal path and down to the historic Portsoy. Wonderful place. 21km, 315m climbed. 6hrs well spent in beautiful area and sunshine.

Having walked coastal path from Portknockie, added loop to visit the Trig before returning to start. No crops in the field.

Parked in Cullen. Followed the footpath alongside the playing field and then to Logie House. The field had been ploughed so had to walk around it to the nearest point then across to the trig.

Parked at Findlater castle and walked down to West Sands beach and then up the gulley south east of the trig onto the newly harvested field. Amazing views and sunshine

Foundation block exposed and pillar slightly leaning, looks to have been up-rooted. In field of wheat stubble.

Stubble field so perfect time to visit on coastal walk to Crannoch hill from Sandend campsite. Amazing sea views. A lot of plinth visible; hope it doesn’t topple.

Visited this pillar on a walk from Cullen to Macduff (bus to Cullen from home arrived just before 11.00) walked round coast then battled the only possible route through gorse (others also been this way) coming out east of the trig point. The field had been ploughed but not planted however shouldn't be long before it is and then access won't be possible. Great views.

Good condition pillar. Accessed along tramline running beside the trig to avoid disturbing the crop. Came up past Logie House. FB faces south-ish, west-ish sighthole open only. Cap missing with asphalt plug present. Great views.

Log #234. Parked on Logie Drive and took the track past the ruins of Logie House. Field obviously not arable at this time of year so followed tyre tracks all the way to the pillar. Good condition, on plinth with cap plugged. Would be great views on a clear day, but even with the horizontal rain, it was still worth the trip. Bin of Cullen loomed large over the village. [ExP-182/MiP-9/Rev-2/BM-13/IS-22/Other-6]

Plugged cap and view west towards the Bin.

Followed track past Logie House ruins but then it got difficult. Barley crop almost ready for cutting so had to walk round field edge, rough ground underfoot and chest high thistles. Had to choose correct tramlines to access pillar and not disturb crop.

Parked at Cullen FC and walked up the track, then decided a cross country route was a good idea through the very muddy field, hard going! Came back via the ruin a much better route, can't believe I've only just read about the cut mark.....another visit required me thinks!

Stunning sea views from an elevated position. Walked in along the track to the ruin of Logie House from upper Cullen. Forgot to look for the bench mark though.

I parked at the playing field car park to the west and then used the track towards Logie House. The pillar comes into view from about a kilometre so I headed directly towards it across harvested fields and one low wire fence (this would only be possible out of the growing season though). The pillar is just inland from the cliffs and it makes a wonderful view point. In very good condition although the original plug is missing leaving the top open to the elements. I came back via the ruins of Logie House where there is a cut bench mark to be found.

Beautiful view of the Moray Firth, pleasant walk from the Cullen road, through wood then across cut crop fields. Lovely day for it!

Trig and FB Lovely view of the coast.

In an arable field, this trig pillar in good condition but the spider no longer retains OS cap. The flush bracket is south facing. This field has been planted in such a way that it is possible to reach the trig without damaging the crops. Suspect there may have been an east-west boundary by trig at one time, this line still divides different crops. Farmer and workers saw me there an did not bother me. Distant views to coastline and hills across Moray Firth. Visited and photographed 4/09/2001, GRP.
