The trig point is located next to a corner in a fence on Robert’s Seat, a moorland top located between West Stonesdale and Whitsundale. In wet weather the ring is likely to be full of water though the legend ‘Ordnance Survey Trigonometrical Station’ can still clearly be seen.
The concrete ring is fairly easy to reach via a short diversion from the path from Tan Hill to Ravenseat. The views are extensive and includes Rogan’s Seat, Nine Standards Rigg, Great Shunner Fell and High Seat.
