parked by farm, a short walk across boggy field, which gets progresively drier with altitude. Foundations slightly exposed, small cracks on pillar with the top delaminating. Asphalt cap.

A very muddy (and smelly) but short walk from the farm at Hillhead. Very glad we had wellies on and even that was only just good enough!! Views good in most directions especially towards Blacksidend.

Good wee walk from Catrine village past the war memorial. Decent views all round, pretty similar to near by Dykes Farm trig. Not sure when this was last used for golf though :-)

Slightly damaged pillar in pasture. Friendly cows in the field, but easily avoided. FB faces north-ish with west-ish and south-ish sightholes open. Cap is missing with asphalt plug. Minor cracking to the top screed and a few cracks on the pillar itself. Nothing major or extensive. Not bad views, but not earth-shaking. Accessed from north. There's a cut benchmark on the farm building.

Deep diagonal crack near base. Asphalt plug. Pasture, on knoll overlooking bungalow. Despite name, no golf course nowadays.
