Slight diversion from the Brechin Path Network to find this, almost hiding in long grass beside track to solitary wind turbine.

Last of 4 pillars I visited on a walk round Brechin. Came round the path along the old railway line from Maisondieu pillar. Very easy access along track. View across fields to the hills. pillar in good condition with central cap in place. Continued with my walk round to the Post Office on Montrose Street, where I started. Caught bus back to Montrose.

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and remains in a good condition.

En route to visit the nearby House Of Dun, and made a quick detour to easily find this trig. Pillar fine with cap in place but with no lettering.

Second visit. For photographs and GPS measurement. SITE VISIT: Approached from south. Parked by farm track entrance at NO616611. Short walk up farm track, distance around 200m. Pillar on east side of farm track. Column in good condition. Spider retains unlettered OS cap which looks original. Flush bracket faces west ~269 across track. Vented through three half buried sight holes, north face plugged. 360 open skyline with no major obstructions but no particular views either.

Up a green lane carrying an irrigation hose. Good condition - blank plug. Lots of electricity pylons. Got lost on way in and ended up at Glebe Park, memories of Meadowbank Thistle's first promotion and all. Breichin failed today to win promotion, but are almost certain to go up this season.

Pitforthie Metal - no writing on plug.
