From Faseny Cottage, over the ford, then up to the trig. Wandered around in the heather with SatMap for the high point. No feature. With Sail.Dangerous Dave15/04/2019
Solo. I parked at roadside parking above Faseny Cottage. Followed the track that goes down towards Faseny Cottage and across a footbridge over Faseny Water. Followed the track towards Little Says Law. This is a substantial track as far as a track junction, then becomes a rough track, little used. From there I followed a fence to the summit of Meikle Says Law. The boundary between the historic counties of Berwickshire and Haddingtonshire (later called East Lothian) runs near or not far from the fence. From trig point climbed over a gate to go south to the highest point of the historic county of Berwickshire. On return used a substantial track that descends from the summit of Meikle Says Law to the glen of Faseny Water. It had been misty almost all the time on the walk, but began clearing up towards the end. No precipitation.pwbellarby06/01/2019

Route as for Meikle Says Law. Then over stock fencing to flat boggy 'top'.jonglew16/10/2017
My only top of today as I climbed Meikle Law accidentally which can be reached from the same minor road between Gifford and Longformacus it also does not help that the locals seem to be unaware of two hills in the same area with virtually the same name. This 6.5 mile walk with 270m of climb can be found in Jonny Muir's book of UK County tops start from the lay by opposite Faseny cottage which can not be seen from the road.WAYNE ROWLETT23/08/2016
Parked up from Faseny Cottage. Road runs west, then south, then east all the way to summit. Hopped over into Berwickshire. North East return via Lamb Burn. 6 miles.callumorr06/04/2016
Normally I would settle for getting my head above the highest point, but for the Berwickshire highest point I suppose you really should actually enter Berwickshire. Well, I think I did, although I'm not sure where the boundary is. And I visited the birdfeed box in the summit photo. That will do me!Pete R10/10/2015
Short diversion to join the Golden Plovers, well that was what the man doing the 'post installation' wind-farm bird survey said they were.tim74719/03/2015

Lay-by opposite track to Faseny – Drop down & ford Faseny Water – Track up ENE ridge & then across trackless moor to summit of Meikle Says Law - Walked S. for about 100m to Berwickshire’s county top. (PM)gerrybowes11/12/2013
Lovely winter afternoon for the East Lothian and Berwickshire county tops.killiedaft01/12/2013
W Jenx, from road above Fasey cott. As Jimbob and others, take ford then direct track up hill. New road becomes moor landrover trail, then path and above 450m nothing but heather for 200m. Path re-emerges leads to trig and over fence to second county top.nordicstar10/11/2013

Lovely day on Easter weekend. Came up here for the trig and County tops but couldn't resist nabbing the cache as well despite not having a GPS or Compass its easy enough to fix the direction using the map and pace it out.andy07/04/2007
