Sixth of 8 bags today, and by some distance the best of the bunch. Straight up the (steep) hillside from the East, brilliant 360 degree views.

Parked at 729,217 where there is a small gate in the field boundary. Nice walk up to the trig via the old quarry.

From parking spot at road junction to S. The person-sized gate in the wall at the top has now been fitted with two new back-to-back gates each with double chain fasteners! Did the farmer have a gate to spare, or was he making a statement?!

On the drive in I was dismayed to see lots of cattle on the hill. However, once I reached the parking spot (field entrance directly E of pillar) I could see that there weren't any in the trig field. Headed straight up to the trig. Good view.

Parked along the road from the junction to the south and walked straight up the hill, then discovered we were on the wrong side of the dyke...then discovered the GOML landowner had gone rather gung-ho with the barbed wire. There was a walking access gate facing us, however it was barricaded off on both sides with secured metal gates and barbed wire. We walked down the dyke side to see if there was an alternative means of access and found another walking access gate, this time with a line of thigh-high barbed wire at both sides (see photo). We were determined to get through, which necessitated in crawling under the barb and climbing over the gate (which had also been secured shut). Complete arrogance on the part of the landowner as there was no livestock in any of the fields! Anyhoo, onto the trig...decent views down to Cessford Castle and across to Hare Law, where we'd been earlier in the day. We didn't linger long at the trig as we had the return via the assault course to look forward to!

Made my way up from the junction to the south. Second attempt as previously the entire hill was covered in cattle.

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 28th August 1953 costing 12.3s.6d. In 1954, flush bracket S7504 was levelled for height. This marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NT72/T2 in the Jedburgh secondary block during 1957, and was last maintained by the OS in September 1986. Spider retained orignal OS plug with stamped font by October 1992.
