As others have said we found it but couldn't get close as it's being held hostage behind fence and razor wire by MOD

In the distance

As everybody else. Can just make it out with the naked eye from the wall near Bullions Farm.

Parked at Crombie Point carpark. Notices threaten/warn dogs, razor wire, prosecution under some act or other. If you can legally make your way round the perimeter keeping off MOD land - although it's not clear where it ends then there's an obvious trig - the strands of wire mentioned by escortedal can be seen. Condition looks good.

It's the dot in the middle!

Log #413. Despite my success at Castlandhill, I wasn't going for a repeat here. Drove to Crombie Point for a wonderful view of Grangemouth and Bo'ness, before going as far as I dared along the coastal road. No hope of a physical visit for me, unless I go undercover and infiltrate the MoD. Just joking! [ExP-283/MiP-34/Rev-6/BM-28/IS-43/Other-19]

in not too bad condition, has small wire cables attached to it which are quite rusty. and broken. stonework is pretty much undamaged, info plates on it are pretty good condition also.

Pretty sure this can be seen with binoculars from the minor road to the west between Bullions and Crombie point (trig - shaped object in the right area). Lots of cameras, warning signs and security fences. Is this the best defended pillar in the country?

Drove down to Crombie Point walk as far as possible along foreshore to within 650m.Though of walking up passed Bullions Farm but light was fading fast plus walking in snow with a blue coat might stand out too much

Borrowed some good binoculars to view from The Binns as previously advised. Suppose this saves digging that tunnel under the Crombie perimeter security as I'd always planned....

Fairly certain it can be seen from south side of Crombie, something is definitely sticking up in about the right place viewed with the naked eye.

In DM Crombie, MoD munitions depot, very well defended. My written application for access was turned down. Trig clearly visible from The Binns S3234, 6km to SSE. Apparently in good condition, In well kept grass almost in line with SE corner of mapped copse. Got half decent pics; digiscoping kit could doubtless improve result. FB number given as S3202.

NON VISIT LOG. I have uploaded two images using Microsoft Virtual Earth showing (1) what I believe to be the trig pillar and (2) the position of the pillar relative to other nearby features.

Could just about make out either a trig or a very stationary sheep from The Binns. Unlikely to get any closer.

As is obvious from the map, its in an arms dump for the Navy. As it has recently disappeared from the OS maps I thought that I would try and see if I could get a distant view. Probably possible to see it from Crombie- but I saw nothing sticking up in the/ right direction. When the oats are harvested you can get to where the perimeter fence is nearest. May try a telescope look from West Lothian. Would be nice to know if its still there. 13/2/05Had a look with the bins from the Binns and Blackness Castle.. Not one hundred percent sure its a trig, but it looks like it could still be there. Need a follow up with a telescope, as all sorts of junk sticks up on military land.
