Ruin near Murdieston trig point

30 metres SSE of the trig point is a small unroofed ruin (of mid-20th-century date) that has variously been interpreted as an observation post or the site of a mast associated with an experimental radar installation; see LinkExternal link (at Canmore) and LinkExternal link (at Secret Scotland) for further description.
