You can stop putting up wind turbines thank you, we’ve got enough now...On top of the Pillar was a birds egg and a lambs leg. By the Pillar was a dead crow. I suspect some kind of satanic ritual has been taking place here, maybe a curse has been placed on the wind farm company...That said, Wester Dod would probably be a real balls-ache to get to if it wasn't for the wind farm tracks!

Quite misty - rain - standing under turbines I coud not always see blades. More turbines & roads than shown on my map. Approach from WNW at public/wind farm cross roads.

From cattle grid at NT686689. Unluckily for me, the wind turbine which would have provided best access to the pillar was being worked on, blades about to be lifted into position, so in an "Exclusion zone". I was able to sneak in round the back without being seen.

Good parking to west at NT692682. Path up between fence and forest - probably difficult in bracken season.

Parked down the road from Aikengall and followed the track along the Wide Hope. The pillar is now well within the wind farm which is a shame as the 360 degree views are impressive. Views to the Eildon Hills - Pentlands - Lomond Hills - Fife Ness - Telegraph Hill - Cheviots.

From NW, parked at cleuch just north of forest. Decent views to Cheviot, Eildons, Rubers Law, Dirringtons and Bass Rock, but North obscured by haze.

vgc, metal cap, deep letters. In a patch of grass amidst heather, decent view. Access from NW via wind farm access track; parking at cattle grid. Work ongoing extending the wind farm.

I decided to take the mountain bike to this one but wouldn't recommend it! Track on map is intermittent at best and pedalling through knee high heather is quite hard work. Muggy day with shortened views. Completed East Lothian for me though!

Eastern edge of the Lammermuirs, so big coastal views expected and I was not disappointed. Views up to Dundee and Hill of Wirren as well as down to the Cheviot and Northumberland coast. Intact in the middle of a grouse moor.

NT711681, LR67. First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 7th August 1952 costing £17.15s.6d. In 1953 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NT86/T28 in the Berwick secondary block. Flush bracket S7139 was never levelled for height. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in July 1971. Spider retained stamped font OS plug by August 1992.
