Parked at the edge of the wood where there is a large gate way NT713471. The track is solid under foot with no holes! Walked down the field edge to the NE which is just grass and through a gateway in the fence to the trig.

At this time of year is almost completely hidden by bracken, but is close enough to the ride shown on the map to be found easily enough. As others have said, no real views but a lovely tranquil spot.

Followed the path to Marchmont from the A6105 then south along the along the eastern edge of Piersknowe Plantation using the generous field boundary to the tree break. Pillar easily found due to the widely spaced trees. Nice change to have plenty of light and not have to fight my way through a plantation. Any views are long gone but peaceful location.

All intact. Hidden by tall bracken and moss. Approach from south up track by bench. Watch the electric fences.

Woodland, beside a ride. In very good condition, although the trees have long since eaten the view, which is very fine from the nearby woodland edge. I walked through the wood, but you can get close on a good track running beside a field from the Green Ride. The roads in the Marchmount Estate are well worth exploring on a bike.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 20th March 1953 costing 15.19s.6d. In 1955 the flush bracket was levelled for height in 1955. This marker was computed for triangulation as teriary station NT72/T81 in the Jedburgh secondary block in 1957. The trig point was last maintained by the OS in September 1986.
