Son dislodged a couple of small pieces of concrete trying to scale the pillar. View west quite pleasant. Estate didn't feel particularly shady.

Log #302. In Kilmarnock this morning to pick up some computers for a client, so stopped for a quick trig-bag. Simple walk over grassy parkland from road to NE. Pillar is straddling the line between "damaged" and "slightly damaged", with a significant chunk out of one corner and some assorted chips and scrapes. The cap is surprisingly still attached though. I can now say I have been to "The Scheme"! [ExP-220/MiP-22/Rev-2/BM-18/IS-30/Other-10]

Walked up from Kilmarnock Station (took about 25 minutes) to find this trig in its green setting with good views northwards. The pillar should perhaps now be marked 'damaged', because there are two significant chunks gouged out of the top. Slight damage to the cap & spider; all four sight holes open. Then back down to have a look around the town (picking up two intersected stations) before making for friendly Rugby Park: Kilmarnock 2-1 St Johnstone.

Slight damage to spider and cap, with some evidence of concrete weathering, but as others have said in suprisingly good condition given its urban setting. The surrounding grass land has been neatly mown with little if any litter or debris evident. good views to north.

Interesting trig location on the edge of Kilmarnock. Greeted on a lovely warm April day by rock music from the sun bathing locals. Not hard to find and in surprisingly good condition considering where it is. Didn't hang about.

Remarkably good condition considering proximity to estate. Easy access with car park to SE of the trig. Good views to Craigie's ex-trig, Arran and so on. Don't look east, the views are not so good. Pillar in relatively decent condition with crack just below top. Cap present, but obviously messed with. Spider in good condition but seems oddly off centre. All sightholes are open. SW/NE is clear through, SE/NW is blocked with a stone and a golf ball. Oddly satisfying bag, for some inexplicable reason.

The cap shows signs of earlier abuse and has been painted rural green (the spider too), wearing a bit below the repair work with all sights open.

Felt a bit sorry for this trig. Covered in spray paint, and cracked round the top. Decent view to Arran on one side, grim view to Kilmarnock on the other.

Visited to record FB number. HISTORY: Pillar completed 18th September 1947 costing 9.8s.4d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station NS44/T34 in 1950. Levelled in 1961. Last maintained by the OS in July 1978. SITE VISIT: Pillar trunk in fair condition but cracked around the top. Damage probably started by frost then with added local assistance. Spider centre still retained OS plug with stamped lettering. Slightly battered flush bracket faces southwest. Located on an open public space on the outskirts of Kilmarnock. Unfenced access from the NE to south. Photographed 29/04/1997, GRP.

S4217 - South Onthank Photographing the flush bracket was not a pleasant job, somebody had recently emptied their dog there.
