Access is easy next to main road as you turn into housing estate. Good views to the south.

Park off main road in housing estate about 30m from trig. Jaggy bush making flush bracket difficult to access. Mixture of undergrowth and extended garden from nearest house. Good views to south over Forth bridges.

Slowly disappearing.
Best effort without angle loppers.
View to south

Log #409. Well-hidden in veg, couldn't see the FB without ripping my arms to shreds. Wire loops intact, but cap plugged. Seems slightly squatter than usual? [ExP-280/MiP-34/Rev-6/BM-27/IS-43/Other-19]

Pillar seems in good nick, but is being engulfed in the vegetation. Tarmac plug, no obvious sight holes open, not bad views either.

On way to Edinburgh Airport to collect Lady Wubbleyew (coming to help me with the baby-care). This pillar is in a strange, apparently open garden; not bothered today by any possessive gardeners.

Should have read the logs beforehand. Got shouted at by the "garden" owner after walking in over the grass verge as it wasn't really obviously part of the more obvious gardened bit! FB faces west-ish with no obviously open sightholes. Cap missing with asphalt plug. OK views.

The fence has been removed.. the garden is terrific but our wee Pillar has been left in nettles and rough grass. Cap filled, SouthEast sight open.

Kiersbeath Ridge ..the ultimate garden feature.

Keirsbeath Ridge is in a private garden on the Lochwood Park housing estate in Kingseat, Fife. If you're going to visit it, don't make the mistake I did and leap on to the well-tended 'grass verge' only to find the owner of the nearby house asking me what I was doing trampling on his garden!

29/03/2004 Housebuilders at it here too. This time the pillar survived and although roadside, is at the bottom of someone's garden. Concrete plug replacement. 15/9/04 Passed by when cycling out to Kelty to retrieve a broken down car. Still there and OK

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 3rd March 1948 costing £5.18s.6d. Later in 1948 this marker was computed for triangulation as fourth order station NT18/T55 in the Dunfermline secondary block. This is one of four fourth order stations that were added to this block, four years after the bulk of the NT18 trigs were built. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1965. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in February 2001. In 1985 this pillar stood behind the roadside boundary in the corner of an arable field.
