Thank you for previous helpful reports! Easily found by following the wee path up to the wall from the track between Hurkletillane and Wester Broomhouse.

a bit overgrown tidied up a little. Next to a damaged section of walk, an animal track from this wall low point passes across the FBM...or the FBM has more visitors than is indicated by the logs on this site.

Good condition FBM. A bit buried in the undergrowth beside a wall as noted in previous logs. Fortunately a lot of the foliage at this time of year has died back! Excellent views to the north. No height tag, as usual....the OS tile server was down during bagging this, so amusingly had to navigate here using 1947 OS maps which ended up being no different to today's! Flush bracket spotted by Berntsen-sniffing child on wall of Hurkletillane.

Wester Broomhouse 1947-style Current OS map tile server failed...fell back onto the 1947 one!

Very well hidden in deep undergrowth.Broken wall was a great help in locating it.

Partially buried, nettles everywhere. Just to right of partially collapsed bit of wall. Drove up as far as end of track to East.

Pre-gardening.

A bit hidden, but with a Glorious sweep of the Forth Northwards. It is at a break in the brickwork (hopefully not our-doing), beyond the hedge when approaching from the West... pretty stamped down and visited, but be aware of the Jaggy Nettles!

Wester Broomhouse ..mind your fingies, theres jaggies aboot!

I too think it is further east than shown on map. Just next to the first bit of wall you come to if approaching from the west.

Parked at west end of path to farm. FBM is a lot nearer the farm that shown on map. Still badly covered in the undergrowth.

Done in the company of Rob Woodall, following a line of NPFBs from Edinburgh via Whittingehame then onto the Dunbar Circuit. FBM partially buried, some digging was done. GRP.

Well hidden. Scanned around for it for a moment or two before noticing I was standing right next to it...

Burried in nettles, felt about for it with my feet and soon found it.

Needed the clue about the wall. The area was chest deep in summer growth and had to do some burrowing!

Nearby field wall has collapsed nearly covering this one. Moved a couple of stones back into wall.
