Parked near the road end to Houstry and walked up track to near the top.Tisteln14/02/2024
Drove up a track to get nearer to this trigged TuMP. Opposite where I parked was a very modern style large bungalow with a flat single pitch from SSW down to the NNE back. Here Lyndsey Wilson and hubby and young kids were self self building their own house. 148sq m so that's about 2400sq ft. Big empty shell at moment quest all fire walls up and roof. Now ready to stud partition subdivide into various rooms. Would love to see it complete on couple of years.vegibagger29/09/2022
Easy stroll to the top house. The trig lies hidden behind a large bank of gorse but access is easy through a gate to the south. High point in a grassy patch within the gorse thicketColin Crawford25/07/2022

Here for the trigpoint. TP:UK log: From B870 past Houstry to house near trigpoint. Asked permission to visit and readily given. The owners have 2 dogs a Collie and German Shepherd so beware as they are running free. Took gate to trig field and then had to climb a barbed wire fence to hug it.thejackrustles01/08/2019
