Cross Law

A hill of the NE Scottish Borders, Cross Law rises to 227m (744 feet) 2½ miles (4 km) northwest of Coldingham. It overlooks the Berwickshire coast and is the source of the Buskin Burn. Its summit is marked by an Ordnance Survey primary triangulation pillar established in 1936. Close to this summit is an innocuous bungalow which was formerly the guardhouse and entrance to an underground ROTOR radar defence station, built in 1952 to replace the Chain Home station at Drone Hill, 2 miles (3 km) to the southwest. The bungalow has now been converted to domestic use. Nearby is a former Royal Observer Corps bunker, which is still complete.
