Parked at Whitmuir Hall Toll. Easy walk following the stonewall SW. Glad the cattle were north of this wall. Missed the trig and ended up at small plantation, spot height 201. Just as well as this allows access north side of wall to appreciate location of this pillar. Spider intact. Great views albeit a rainy day.On return I noticed evidence of wall damage where people have tried to clamber over gaining a quick access to this pillar. Shame on you baggers! Interesting topography at Hog Knowes yon side of parking spot.

Selkirk Common Pillar looking NE toward parking location. Eildon Hills covered in rain clouds.

Easy walk from roadside parking space at Whitmuir Hall Toll. Follow farm track and over a couple of fences. Good view all round. Not able to get a good look at the old race course.

Parked at the small lay-by east of the pillar and followed the track. Easy 10 minute walk on our way back home from Minch Moor.

Straightforward to get to this trig - just a quick run up the hill from the main road, with a new moon and venus to guide us. Plug intact with deeply indented lettering.

Selkirkshire. This is easy to walk up to from the road, which we did in fading light. Plug with deeply indented letters.

Easy walk in along the track from the north east. Hazy day so the distant views were hidden.

On edge of a field being grazed by sheep. Approached via the common with an old racecourse on it. Bright light and deep shadows, views of The Cheviot and Eildons. Good condition and intact.

Second visit. For photographs and GPS reading. SITE VISIT: On the southern edge of a cattle field. The pillar is in very good order. The ground around the base is eroded by the livestock. Spider retains original centre cap with deep indented letters. Flush bracket faces NNW. Vented through SE sight hole. Views to Eildon Mid Hill, Peniel Heugh, Rubers Law, Three Brethren, Meigle Hill.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 12th June 1953 costing 13.17s.9d. Flush bracket S7580 was levelled for height in 1955. This marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NT72/T88 in 1957 and was last maintained by the OS in June 1977. No photos taken.
