Kidlaw, East Lothian

This recently (?) refurbished post stands in bleak moorland, right at the top of the road south from Pencaitland.

Longyester, East Lothian

A personal favourite, this post is at Longyester. The 'impassable' road is in fact an old coaching track that heads straight over the Lammermuir Hills and rises to within 20 metres of the summit of Lammer Law. Only the first 3km or so is tarmacked; the rest is strictly mountain bike territory! A doff of the hat also to whoever measured the distance to Edinburgh down to the nearest eighth of a mile.

New signpost, older style

Another of the refurbished or replaced signposts of East Lothian. I think this one is new. 'Hopes' is a reservoir in the Lammermuir Hills.

Here's the signpost at the junction in West Saltoun. Many of the older style signposts in East Lothian are, like this one, in the process of being refurbished or replaced with matching new parts where necessary. In this example the post and circle are original but the three arms are recent replacements (I think). However, calculating your total distance is a bit tricky here because the surveyor has used eighths for some distances and fifths for others...
