From cattle grid to SW, good verge parking. Pillar has an aging coat of white paint, but still looking OK; original centre cap retained, raised lettering; rear sight hole open, other 3 plugged with front plug degrading. Extensive panoramic views.

Nabbed this in the gloaming. Horizontal rain and inquisitive cattle looming out of the gloom made it interesting. With CJ.

Not on the list for today but the weather was so lovely decided to squeeze a few more in! Parked in a lay-by (N55 01.813' W4 37.316') at the start of the Southern Upland Way for a short and enjoyable stroll to the trigpoint.
