Good condition pillar. Easily accessed from the dull and ugly, but at least dry underfoot, wind turbine track. FB faces north-east-ish, south-east-ish sighthole open only, cap missing. Good views.

Walked up the Turbine Access track from Glendevon (even blagged a wee tour of the nearest Turbine) then short section of roughish terrain to trig. Good views of the Ochil Hills and also Craig Rossie

It's really hard to find much love for these wind turbines. The whoosh and whine certainly detract from the ambience. Up from Glendevon Country Park on the turbine track then short section of roughish terrain to trig. Pillar in good condition with FB in place but cap gone. Good views of the Ochil Hills it's just those turbines....

An easy walk in using the Green Knowe's Wind Farm track for most of way then a short section over some rougher terrain. Great views over in the direction of Crieff & Ben Chonzie before making my way over to the next trig point on Eastbow.

Same route along the turbine road as recent visitors before carrying on to Eastbow Hill. Perfect walking conditions, a bit cooler than the previous few days.

Fairly comfortable walk up along the wind farm's stony road. Eventually, the pillar can be seen in the distance as you thred your way through the twirling fans. Open cap, one sight-hole open, one pierced, and two closed. Scorching sun today; I need a hat!

Via Green Knowles wind farm road - easy access but hard underfoot and a horrible industrial scar on the landscape. Must have been beautifully remote at one time.

Probably would have scored higher if we'd been able to see anything. As it was we were glad of the noisy wind turbines to keep us on the right path!

Started from S near Glendevon Castle and walked up the huge new Green Knowe windfarm road, which brings one to about 350m from trig. Rather circuitous, and ghastly, but easy.
