What views! Could clearly see the new Forth Bridge to the west, well into Fife to the north, and a hundred billion wind turbines in every other direction...the TP appears to be defended by a moat, with a large stone acting as a drawbridge. Otherwise the pillar itself is in good condition.

Parked on at the end of the marked track on the minor road to the north east. Glorious late February weather meant frozen ground and gave views of the Cheviot / Ochill's and the Angus Hills as well as the Forth. Despite the sea of turbines over the Lammermuir's a great spot.

Pillar in good condition although the base is becoming undermined as the cattle seem to use it for a scratching post & the ground is trampled around the pillar so is under water most of the time

Bransly Hill A bleak & cold day up here today but worth it for the amazing snow views over the Lammermuirs.

vgc, metal cap, deep letters. Revisit in passing (having discovered the summit is a bit farther S and 1m higher!). Lot of wind turbines built since my last visit. Direct approach from cattlegrid.

Second visit. For GPS measurement and photographs. SITE VISIT: Pillar in good condition. Spider retains OS centre cap with deep indented letters. Flush bracket faces 129 SE. Vented through NE sight hole. View includes Spartleton, Sayers Law, Lammer Law, Skid Hill, Traprain Law, North Berwick Law, Cocklaw Hill, Cockburn Law. No doubt many of the Fife and Angus tops are visible on clearer days.

vgc, metal cap, deep letters. Rough pasture, standing in a little pool: conveniently placed stone facilitates FB photo. Nice view.

Not the best views today - too hazy. Well placed on the Lammermuir escarpment. Intact , in good condition and well polished by cattle. My last East Lothia trig visit.

NT676700, LR67. First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 29th July 1952 costing 15.18s.6d. In 1953 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station NT86/1 in the Berwick block. Flush bracket S7142 was never levelled for height. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in July 1989. Spider retained stamped font OS plug by August 1992.
