Asked at the club house if we could walk to the trig, no problem, but there were lots of golfists about. Followed the line of the wall from the club house to the trig. Did contemplate coming early in the morning to bag this one.

Drove to the clubhouse at Kilspindie parking at the overflow car park that overlooks Aberlady Port. Permission given to walk the course to reach this trig. Huddled in a corner of two walls this trig is well protected. Spider intact. Lacks a lick of white paint.

Great day but windy. Great views over the Forth into Fife. Parked in the golf course car park and found pillar easily with aid of OS map.

Thought that a Monday morning would be a quiet time to visit---so wrong! Big car park but it was full. However, asked in Pro shop and was given full permission and directions to trig.

golf course, easy access across the fairways, some expensive houses in the grounds.

Drove up to Kilspindie clubhouse and parked in club carpark. Asked a young lady at the clubhouse if it was ok to walk to the trig. No problem was the reply, just follow the wall and watch out for golfballs. Found trig snug at a corner of the wall. Nettles higher than the FB. Lovely sunny evening. Access seems ok here as saw a chap walking a couple of dogs on the course whilst I was walking back.

vgc, metal cap, shallow letters. SE quadrant of wall, middle of golf course. Visited at dusk. Mossmorran Chemical Works (Pilkham Hills) was flaring impressively across the Firth.

Pleasant wander round perimeter of course - nice stretch of coast. Presumably it's in middle of course by one of several fragments of old wall. Busy with golfers: apparently outward holes hence eve visit probably best.

Parked in Aberlady and walked round the outside of the golf course until level with trig point and no golfers about, then cut across. Few looks but no shouting to get off.

In from the south (hotel) on a starry night. Around some sort of scheme for Rich People and across the course. Hit the pillar without difficulty. View across to Fife and the lights on the Binn mast. Big headlights from the ghetto helped me find my way back. Good condition,home to a slug.

Nice jaunt round the golfy, but not many folks out in this wind. Only the brave or possibly stubborn hackers were out for a flail.

Revisit. SITE VISIT: As the name suggests, this pillar is situated by a golf course. It is near the East Lothian coastal village of Aberlady. The pillar is in good condition and still retains its OS spider cap. The flush bracket faces south. This triangulation station has the honour of being the lowest altitude trig on OS Landranger 66 (Edinburgh). Photographed, 23/10/1996, GRP.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed in August 1943 costing 4.2s.6d. Later in 1943 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NT48/T34 in the Edinburgh secondary block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1960. This trig point was last maintained by the OS on 17th October 2000.
