Done some homework on this one, so walked from motorway bridge up the steep hill chasing sheep.

About a kilometre west of Linlithgow, turn north up a lane off the main road, past a couple of houses, then lane becomes a track and goes uphill. At the top of the track, over a gate and headed west for a couple of hundred metres through a field of gazing sheep, some of them were quietly sheltering from the sun under the hedges until being disturbed. Pillar is in the corner of the field on the other side of the barbed wire fence but FB faces into the north field, so easier to photograph from that side. Raised S prefix. Not visible from the track. Fairly good views, a bit forlorn. Constant traffic noise from the nearby motorway.

A bit wet today but a quick walk under the motorway then up the grassy hill. Very slip slidey coming down on the wet grass

A pleasant sharp ascent (parked under the motorway bridge) up through a grassy, grazing field to find the pillar in its hedge. Very muddy, with the rain continuing to fall, but what matter, for I was having fun. Asphalt cap; one s/h open. A worthwhile soaking.

From under the motorway bridge, looked like it would be easier just heading up from the road.

Parked under motorway bridge, over horribly slippy bridge (really dangerous),over gate and up slope. Follow fence/hedge line to trig. Easy. Be warned you will have lots of sheep following you looking for food.

Pillar easy to find. Parked as per others under motorway and short walk through sheep to trig. Good views, especially toward Linlithgow and viaduct. Noise from motorway off putting.

Wandered up through the trees to the south west then followed the intermittent hedgerow to the pillar.

Vgc pillar located at a field boundary. Accessed via the marked road on the map from the south. Just parked in the entrance to the farm buildings where there's a little pull-in space and mooched up the road and cut to the west to the trig. FB faces north-ish with east-ish sighthole open only. Cap missing but asphalt plug present. Decent views to neighbouring pillars.

Cap filled with only the East sight open; the South is buried and obscured on this BSM Pillar. Lovely hidden bridge and gate access from the Motorway underpass, the Pillar itself is meshed, barbed and nettled, in close company to a hawthorn bush with a cracking boulder to sit on, enjoy the Southern view, and make your triggy-notes! :-)

Waukmilton ..Hawthorn, handy boulder n all. :D

Raining, dark, busy road with nowhere to park. Time to retreat to the 4in1 for a kebab.

Felt strange as I did not have to drive anywhere to reach this trig. Walked from my house to top of hill in 20 minutes. Never realised there was a trig point so close.

Cold and frosty morning but nice to get out

Easy access and climb park underneath the motorway as the bridge over the steepsided burn is right at hand. No views of not and no change to trig condition

Revisit. HISTORY: Pillar completed 14th April 1944 costing 5.3s.9d. In 1947 this marker was computed for triangulation as tertiary station NT18/T19 within the Dunfermline secondary block. The flush bracket was levelled for height to Class 1 precision, tertiary standards in 1964. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in May 1984. SITE VISIT: Pillar stands in the northwest corner of an arable field just over one mile west of Linlithgow. Easiest accessed via adjacent grazing fields to west and north. Column in good condition. Spider cnetre plugged with coarse bitumen. BsM flush bracket faces north straight into fence. View to Cocklerue Hill (Cockleroy).
