Parked just by the gate to the mast, bit muddy but fine. All the gates are padlocked with heavy chain. The muck pile at the top of the track has turned into a lagoon with all the rain we've had.

Battling a SW gale all the way from the dogleg. Went the other way to the nearby Yeaman afterwords.

Just looks like pasture land now. Coos out with their calves. Passed by on a big cycle on a grand but breezy day.

Now not even any sign of the open cast mining, save some old "Danger Quarry" signs. Back to grass land, but suspiciously smooth and new land. Site is on a well surfaced track. Weather foul. I passed this way in 1987, but no record of the pillar that once stood here.

My worst fears now confirmed. This pillar was lost to opencast mining c2000.

The pillar, and reservoir that it sat on were removed during the opencast mining of the Monteith Houses site, an extension to the Blinkbonny Mine in 2002 (sorry about that). I managed to salvage the flush bracket and the instrument plate from the concrete with a great deal of effort but unfortunately neglected to take any photos of the pillar prior to removal. The pillar was used as part of the site control right up until the end using Allermuir Hill and Scald Law as RO's.

In 1985, this pillar was still standing, and I saw it. Photographed FB but not pillar. Pillar completed 12th September 1943 costing 4.18s.0d. In 1943 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NT48/T51 in the Edinburgh Secondary Block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1960. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in August 1981.

S3075, Camphill Resr. The flush bracket is the genuine article, as was the view. Area is now an opencast mine and the trig is gone. No known photograph of the pillar exists.
