The road junction north of Meikle Pinkerton is shown clearly on old maps, but has been lost to the A1 and the expansion of the nearby cement works. Traces of the road are still visible on my 1989 LR67, and a building is shown at the correct location. - however, it is missing from today's map. The area is now heavily overgrown, with no sign of any building - it's just possible some ruins are hidden by the vegetation, but this one is probably a gonner.
