Quickly found following Cootking’s directions. The verge is currently being built up because of pavement works so may be buried a bit deeper in future.

Looked to be tricky but lined up with 3rd bar on give way sign, 4m from road and got it straight away. Covered with grass only so replaced when finished.

There it is!

Roadside verge, a little tricky to locate as measurements a tad out from the OS sketch but once located Alex C soon had it exposed. We measured it at 5.6m and 7.1m from the inspection chamber hatches, and 4m from road - closely according with CJO's figures.

Interesting knowing comment from one of the locals passing by as we started prodding around for the berntsen. 'I've seen it!'

Relatively easy find, left uncovered. Line up with the 3rd double white line from the road opposite, and 3.8m from kerb, found on 3rd prod. Nosey postman wanted to know if I was looking for a buried cable!

took some finding, almost gave up. it would appear as though the manhole covers have moved slightly (replaced). Distances are 7.08 from east BT cover. 5.60 from west BT cover. 3.8m from kerb, 12.00m from lamppost UE69.

Twenty minutes of taping and prodding to find this one. Note the OS sketch is now wrong! The "No Practice" sign has been moved from its drawn position to being on the lamppost. Therefore, that measurement is no longer correct. Used a tape-in from the two BT covers. Berntsen-sniffing child found it with a tent peg about 3" underground after we'd decided which 50x50cm square it was in. Great views to the north! Only got asked once why we were digging!

Last time I'd spent well over an hour hunting unsuccessfully, but today I walked straight up to it. The rank grass had been chopped right down to ground level, leaving the disk uncovered.

East Lothian. Got it! The time of year obviously helped but we were just armed with iainmacs photos and it took 15 minutes of sustained prodding and scraping as the ground was part frozen. Good views of Bass Rock.

Lunch and a train back to Edinburgh were beckoning and this one refused to be found despite much prodding and digging.

Have found out the hard way that you must take as much information with you as possible to locate this type of Trig Point. This time went armed with photos, tape measure and drawing from the OS Site. Makes life much easier.

Position , OS drawing and Berntsen.

Gave up when I uncovered a big present left behind by a dog. Had hoped disturbed earth would make it obvious but it didnt.

On the edge of another golf course. Easily found with a prodder - not too far down , but totally buried. Of course I replaced the divot.

Took ages to find. Had to resort to tape measure, sketch and prodder. Lovely spot in this good weather tho.
