Easy access - just a shame the visibility was less than 100 metres thanks to thick mist.

Good views over the Berwickshire coastline, and this visit was enhanced by the joyous greetings (gruntings) we received from a group of utterly charming pigs in the next field. I donít think Iíve ever been so warmly welcomed at a trig. Pillar retains its cap with deep lettering and one sight-hole is open although it seems that a little creature has made a comfortable nest within.

Couple of minutes walk up track from the SW, got some grumpy looks from some picnickers who'd chosen to park in the same gateway; have to admit feeling slightly superior...they were on a picnic, I was on a MISSION.

Located on ridge top on NW side of fence. Reached by track along field edge from SW. Slightly higher ground to NW. Very close to, but not yet part of, huge free range pig farm.

Parked at side of road just before bend and walked north through gate to trig point . The trig in on the west side of the fence line So use the first gate left not the obvious gate straight up from the bend.

Short walk along the track from the Coldingham to Ayton road. The pillar is very close to the fence so not worth the risk of the cattle in the adjacent field. Decent coastal views.

Easy short walk up a track - when the geese are not about. A lot of feathers on the road, and noisy geese at the nearby farm. Should be OK around Christmas. Good nick and intact

First visit. To record FB number. HISTORY: Pillar completed 25th July 1952 costing £15.13s.11d. Computed for triangulation as tertiary station NT86/T1 in the Berwick secondary block during 1953. Flush bracket S7140 levelled for height also in 1953. Last maintained by the OS, 10th August 1989. SITE VISIT 4/08/1993: Back in the days when Lowland Scottish ran the No.104 Edinburgh to Berwick bus service. All consigned to history now, not just the 104 bus route, but the bus company name too.
