This was our eighth Trigpoint we have came across. Nice easy roadside find! We took a left at the crossroads on the B6355 just before East Saltoun. This was by far the easiest trig we have found. The trig is not far at all from the turn off. We blinked and nearly missed this one, then parked near enough opposite it on the other side of the road in a wee layby. It was a beautiful sunny day for trig hunting! Lannie took over Andy's usual Trig Pose for this one due to him putting his neck out and complaining it was too hard to get up on the trig...I think he was just maybe too scared of the big nettles around it! This was a nice wee find and an easy one at that. We then went over to find the one at Leeshouses. Another easy one to bag!

On our way home from a quick sortie to East Lothian and couldn't resist the easy pickings of this roadside trig. Situated within sight of the B6355 junction.

A quick stop on my cycle trip around East Lothian. The pillar is in reasonable condition and it is nice to see the centre cap in place.

This roadside pillar is just under a mile NW of the East Lothian hamlet of East Salton. The pillar is on the NW side of the road as shown on the map. Ten minutes worth of hawthorn pruning was required before this pillar could be photographed. Apart from the hedge, access is uninhibited. Views to Skid Hill and Lammer Law. The pillar (built 20th August 1943) is still in good condition. The spider has an OSTS cap, but it is not the original. The original cap would have had a shallow engraved font, this one has a raised narrow cast font. FB faces SE across road. Weather hot & sunny.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 20th August 1943 costing 5.2s.6d. Later in 1943 this marker was computed as tertiary station NT48/T35 in the Edinburgh Secondary Block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1948. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in August 1981.
