Easy but steep up from roadside. The view is stunning a very special area of the Scottish Borders

One of the non-OSGB36 pillars on T:UK, but probably built by or with the collusion of the OS as it has a standard OS spider. However, no flush bracket, no central tube and no sight holes. There is what may be a drainage tube protruding from the base of the S face. Nice views S across the reservoir... as one might expect.

Left the car at the dam car park and followed the route of NJM but with no one asking questions. Made for the NE corner of the field where you can see the gate as you come across the dam. From here around the top of the wood and the trig is clearly visible.

Parked at the reservoir car park intent on bagging six pillars in one walk! As I passed by East Cramalt an ATV with a couple of gamekeeper types drove down the drive so I asked if it was OK to go up to the OS Pillar. I was told categorically 'no' due to the amount of pheasants being reared in the plantations on the E side of the hill - in fairness I was told 'you would be OK, but not with the dog'. Tactful diplomacy on my part worked (anyone who knows me will find that last statement very hard to believe) but it was agreed I could go up the hill with the dog as long as we walked along the road round to the W side of the hill and climbed the open hillside. "Though it is very steep that side" the head gamekeeper said, then checked himself, laughed and added "though its very steep this side too!" He wasn't wrong...

Followed the marked track that takes to the field via a double gate at East Cramalt. A group of kennels housing huskies make an awful racket. New fencing at the top enclosing newly planted trees had to be crossed to access the trig. Standard size, no FB, one sight hole formed by a yellow hexagonal plastic pipe on itís south face, centre plate missing. Fantastic views up and down Meggat. Descended directly back to the road.
