Parked at caravan park for a short walk to the trigpoint and mast. We investigated the chain walk but only one of us felt brave enough and we had the 3 dogs with us so we left it for another day.

Up from Earlsferry. I think that this may be the first pillar I've accessed via a beach. Great views over the Forth to familiar landmarks.

Lots of World War II concrete piles up here, and some substantial parts of old defensive buildings remain. I noticed the large circular bowl of a former gun placement; also many rotting concrete posts which at one time fenced in the area - they stand like ghostly sentinels. Pillar fine, no cap, one sight hole open.

vgc, no cap or plug, in longish grass by coast path. Broken up remains of what do indeed appear to be gun emplacements. Lovely coast view, especially SE to May and Bass. Quick bag from ENE, Shell Bay access road, rain threatening again but stayed dry and turned out a nice sunny autumn day.

Gave this a 6 because although this is an easy trig to bag, this section of coast is one of the loveliest that we have been on. (Height:120ft)

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed in October 1943 costing 5.9s.0d. Later in 1943 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station NT48/13 in the Edinburgh block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1967. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in June 1986. Views across the Forth.
