Drove wind farm roads, parked by a turbine ~130m to SSW. Pillar is in a sorry state with some serious cracks and faults around the FB level; top is also missing most of the screed and some concrete, all spider arm ends are exposed. Front and LHD side sight holes open. Cloud down, no views.

Drive in access from NX547984, allowing extensive bagging in the area - Upper Hill (5D), Dugland (5D), Craignane (5D), round of Keoch Rig (DT), Moorbrock (SIM), Mid Hill of Glendeah (5D). Parking for Windy Standard east NX620013. If continue to Jedburgh Knees (to NW) - do NOT drive down Gallow Rig - steep and very rough

Damaged pillar atop excellent viewpoint. FB faces north-west-ish with north-east-ish sighthole open only. Top screed in bad shape with the spider well exposed. Spider still well fixed though. Cap missing and no plug. Large crack right through the pillar about 1' off the ground with a chunk missing from one edge. Not in great shape, but seems stable. Amazing 360 degree views from the top of this one on this very crisp and clear day. Criffel, Lake District to the south, Green Lowther to the east and as far north as Ben Lomond and Ben More. Fantastic! Came up from Afton reservoir parking via the mapped tracks. Avoided the firebreak shortcut and stuck to the roads. 15 mile round trip....

This pillar is in a sorry state like many NS83 pillars. Earlier repairs are cracking and much of the top surface is away. Still structurally sound. Spider centre open. Flush bracket on NNW face. Front sighting hole open. Long views to the east and south include Broad Law, Hart Fell, Cold Fell, Skiddaw, Binsey, Criffel, Helvellyn, Sca Fell and Pillar. SW dominated by Cairnsmore Of Deugh. Accessed from Afton Resr via tracks and forest breaks. Tertiary station in Block NS83, Lanark. Completed 4th July 1950 costing 52.5s.4d. Photographed 17/02/2007, GRP.

Reached here via Blackcraig Hill, Blacklorg Hill, Mickledodd Hill, Alwhat and Alhang. Excellent isolated walking and good under foot except in cols which were boggy. Windy Standard is now crowned by a large wind farm. Views today excellent. Trig point has taken a few knocks and is cracked all the way round about a quarter of the way up.
