Thought this would be an easy one but it turned out to be very tough. The GPS took us to the flat summit of a grassy knoll with stupendous views. Stabbing indicated that the bedrock was a good foot deep all over. Many holes later and we had found nothing. However, just as we were about to leave, we dug one final hole and there it was. 1” conical bolt with dimple. Apologies to the next person for all the false holes. With CJ.

Had tried for this one back in 2016, but failed miserably. Was very determined this time. Rocky top was searched but there was definitely no bolt. Only the SW side of the summit seemed suitable for a bolt placement, so this is where we concentrated. Lots of stabbing and digging of holes eventually found the rascal. 1” conical bolt with dimple. A wee bit corroded. With CJ.

In a small depression, on the SW side of the summit, the screwdriver seemed to hit something. Had a dig and there it was. A 1” domed bolt with dimple. Not an easy find. With CJ.

Had looked at various ways of doing this, but in the end I went straight up from the road/railway. Absolutely brutal. However, 50 mins later, I was on top. Lots of snow with stupendous views. Started hunting for the bolt and soon spotted a small 1/2” rivet. I almost stopped there, thinking I’d found the bolt. This might have been true in the Borders, but in the Highlands, the bolts tend to be more substantial. I kept on looking. Eventually I uncovered 2 more small rivets (there may be more) and a large 3” conical bolt.

Approached by the marked forestry track which has been extended to very near the required location. Wind blown trees made entry into the forest difficult. A well built cairn stands near the spot which is closely surrounded by large trees. Started prodding and digging in very stoney and boggy ground. After 1hr 15 mins and quite a few holes, came across a horizontal flat stone. Further investigation revealed a little white paint and other horizontal stones. Lifting these exposed a flat slab with a cheeky little rod type bolt in the middle. A misty dreich day meant I was soaked but happy.

Been saving this one for a rainy day and as it was raining, decided to visit. Parked at the fisherman’s car park and walked along the tree lined avenue to Easter Lovat Farm. Made a courtesy call at the farmhouse to say where we going. The farmer’s wife told us they had been farming there for 4 years and had not seen a trig pillar. She also said the sea wall had collapsed and been rebuilt. We followed the track and the final field boundary to where the pillar should be and, despite a good search, there was no sign of it. Later examination of previous photographs seemed to show that the sea wall used to be lower so it’s highly likely that pillar has been buried during the rebuilding of the higher defences. Either that or it’s been removed. With Nozzer.

Small parking area to the south of the monument. A path (occasionally signposted) leads through the fields and up to the tower, the door of which is normally open, giving access by a spiral staircase to the top. I took a torch as it can be quite dark. Good search of the parapets showed no sign of the bolt. The floor/roof is concrete which I suspect is newer than the installation of the bolt (1953), so it may be under that. However, about halfway up the NW parapet I spotted a small 1/2” bolt embedded in the vertical wall. It looked to be the right vintage but I’ve never encountered a bolt set vertically before. Is it the bolt? Great views from the top.

Parked at the beach. Very hot airless day so decided against the frontal approach and headed up the marked forestry track to the east to where the pylons go up the hill. The theory is that there’s always a track alongside the pylons. Well I got that wrong. Big time. Floundered up the slope beside the pylons keeping near the trees for shade. Once on top turned SW and made for the GPS location. As shown by jonglew, the location is a featureless flat heathery ridge. Began probing and only found one spot where the screwdriver hit stone. Started digging and pulling out stones, but no luck. Tried 12” away and more stones. However, one of them had white paint on it. Bingo. Kept going, digging out the peat and the stones, to be rewarded with a concrete block with a 1/4” rod protruding from it. Not an easy find! After readings and photos, placed the excavated stones as a small protective cairn over the rod. Direct descent back to the car for water.

Tried this one twelve months ago but couldn’t find it. GPS indicates the bolt is on a rocky summit but this has a community broadband microwave array on it as well as a small cairn. After last year, I took advice on the danger posed by the array and was told that if there were no warning notices, which there isn’t, then there should be no threat from the microwaves. However, just to be safe, we crawled around under the microwave dishes, thus avoiding any danger. All indications were that bolt had to be under the cairn, so set too and dismantled it. Underneath we found the remnants of white paint, which is always good, and soon spotted what was left of the bolt. 1” bolt set in cement but badly corroded so that it’s almost flat. After taking readings and photos, rebuilt the cairn. Nice wee summit with extensive views. With CJ.

Parked in Ardtoe (£1 - it was 50p for years). Set off across the dams which involved a bit of scrambling. Thereafter rough hill with lots of small rock buttresses, two intervening boggy gullys and eventually the cairn on top. Initial sweep of the summit proved negative, so my focus centred on the cairn. After a couple of false starts, I managed to excavate a cave in the cairn and there it was, deep inside. 1” flat dome with dimple. Great view point but weather was lack lustre hence the score.

Parked at the Gordon Arms Hotel and approached the location along the river near the bridge. Spent about an hour stabbing and digging. Nothing. The location is on a river bank and I suspect there have been many floods since the block was installed. I also suspect that the river bank has been rock armoured and built up since 1959 ensuring that the block is long gone. I visited the inn for a meal and talking to the locals in the bar, they all agreed the river has been all over the place with the bank continually changing. However, they showed a lot of interest in what I was doing and asked a lot of questions.

Had my eye on this one for a while, so took my brave pills and rang the doorbell of the old white house on the north side of the pier. I explained to the elderly gentleman who answered what I was after and asked his permission to go out on his pier. He was a bit reluctant and stressed that, owing to the state of the pier, I would be going out on it at my own risk. I reassured him that I would take full responsibity for my actions, so he hesitatingly granted permission. On the way he pointed out a Bench Mark flush bracket on the side of his house and mentioned that over 10 years ago, someone had asked to see it. RHW or iainmac perhaps. The pier itself is old and constructed of stone blocks, which have suffered with the ravages of time. It is covered in turf and sea bird guano and is a bit unpleasant. GPS indicted the rivet should be towards the end of the pier and on the north side. I used a stick to scrape lots of the parapet stones and was evetually rewarded with the 1/2” domed rivet, a bit corroded by the sea but otherwise OK. Photos were taken and the pier owner thanked.

This time I packed the rucksack with a good dollop of determination and set off. 2 hours later and bingo. 1/4" rod set in its pad of concrete. It was protected by a layer of flat stones and turf which made detection very difficult. With CJ.

Found the 1/4" rod in its concrete pad after about 15mins, which is quite quick for a rod. It is situated under a flat rock on top of a low cairn which is about 11m west of the marked cairn.

Walked up from Old Caberston via the marked track which, in places, doesn't exist. Mast shown on map is absent as well. Bright frosty day encouraged me to spend a bit of time on this. Summit is very stoney but, after 45mins, stabbed what felt like a concrete slab. A bit of digging revealed a foot square slab with a 1/4" rod type bolt. Position is midway between the summit cairn and a low pile of stones situated due south of the cairn. (Ignore the small cairn to the SSE).

Previous entries have not exaggerated the dangers of this location. It's horrible. Comparing the original photograph with the actual location, it seems the verge has been built up by about 6" with rocky infill in the intervening years. Although the sketch is useful, the relevant distances are represented by letters and the conversion table has not been included. I had a stab about but due to the precarious position, gave up quite quickly. I'm sure the surface block is there, but I'll not be going back.

Parked in a forestry track entrance on the yellow road up from the A97, sign posted Mytice. Followed the track, which was somewhat overgrown with broom and whin, to the new plantation protected by a new, styleless deer fence. Various clambering excercises then took place, including over the three lines of barbed wire mention by the Jackrustles, before arriving, bedraggled, by the trig. Good views north and west. Descent was via a forest machinery track in the adjoining mature forest. Slightly better as there were no fences to cross. With Nozzer.

GPS put the location of the bolt possibly on the flat roof of the ancient castle that supports the lighthouse. Access is only by joining an official guided tour so that's what I did. Tour itself is very interesting and informative. Mentioned my bolt interest to the guide who was very helpful. GPS placed the bolt in the south corner of the roof. This has a new looking layer of lead topped by wood decking and I suspect the bolt may be under all that. I certainly couldn't find it. Enjoyed my visit though.

The marked trail at the back was followed until a convenient bend was reached and then it was a wet slog across boggy ground interspersed with snow patches until the pillar was reached.

Went through a metal gate opposite Fiunary Farm and wandered down to the shore in a bitingly cold wind. The rocks here are basalt and outcrop in small lumps and bumps. As usual, the GPS pointed to a small jumble of stones which resembled a collapsed cairn. Started digging and probing but after half and hour, gave up. It was getting dark and cold.

Tried this one in Spring but couldn't find a convenient route to it due to a house being in the way, so gave up. This time I spotted a path which goes to the right of the shop and up passed the small petrol pumps. Near the top of the path, look for a small style on the left which gives access to some rough pasture. Follow this over the moor towards a telephone pole which overlooks the Sound of Mull. Near this pole, look for a rotten strainer post with a rusty metal fence post attached to it. The bolt is on a flat rock approx 2.5m from this post, near a whin bush. The bolt itself is 1" with some damage in the form of deep grooves cut in it.

Parked in the small RSPB car park just beyond Glenborrowdale. Followed the delightful little path which starts just to the left of the car park. It wound up a narrow glen through the temperate rain forest. High on the right, the summit, where the bolt should be, came into view. It was very rocky and steep so I continued up the glen until the hillside grew less steep and plunged through the bog and battled up through the bracken/birch/scrub. I then headed back along the ridge and arrived on the summit. What a spot. GPS said the bolt was exactly under a pile of stones so I started looking but eventually gave up. It's possibly there. Just needs more digging.

Followed the directions given by KevP. Parked in the car park at Glenancross which is there for access to the beach. Ignore the beach signs, but walk back out of the car park onto the minor road. Turn left uphill (north). As the road goes over the top and downhill, there is a fancy house on the right. As the road swings sharp right, there is a wooden kissing gate on the left. Go through this and follow the path, keeping the fence on the left. Although a direct assault could be made straight up the steep slope on the right, there is an easier way if you stick to the path as it contours round the hill. Soon you come to an open little gully which gives an easier ascent up the right hand side. Another little pull and you're there. Great views all round although the weather today was decidedly lacklustre. With CJW.

This had recently been clear felled and led to the small loch marked on the map to the south of the trig. This loch turned out to be a marshy bog which we circumvented to the east but in the process, had to battle through thick brush and barbed wire fences.

Parked at Kinloch and followed the track along to Aultanrynie. Picked up the zig zag stalkers path and followed it up and round to spot height 513. Wandered over the Meallan Liath Beag and made the steep ascent onto the ridge. Light rain showers kept drifting by and it was quite cold. Turned left on the ridge and ascended over slabby stones to the summit trig which is protected by a low wall. Very extensive views. The cold drove us off the summit and we descended directly south to eventually pick up the stalkers path again. Very dry underfoot as there hasn't been much rain. With Nozzer.

Parked at the pier at the end of the public road at Drimnin and followed the well marked landrover track towards Dorlinn. After a couple of K's, the trig can be spotted on top of a rocky outcrop. A short pull landed me beside a Vanessa with one of the cleanest flush brakets I've seen. Must be the weather. Today, the sun was splitting the sky and the views over the Sound of Mull to Tobermory and beyond were stunning.

Parked at the pier at the end of the public road at Drimnin and followed the well marked landrover track towards Dorlinn. Strangely, there are mile posts every mile which may indicate this was an important route at one time. The grid reference led to an obvious bump along the escarpment which was duely reached. Here there was a small green mound made up of some rubble, which looked like the remains of a trig point. As the grid reference for the old trig and the block were the same, I can only presume the block is under this rubble. I didn't bother digging. The views were breathtaking and extensive and well worth the effort, so hence the score. Not bad for a non existant trig!

First of all, read Clochandigher's excellent description of the minor road used to gain access to the area. Be warned, it's even worse now, if that's possible. Spent a bit of time exploring various ascent options but due to the river and steep bits of rock, decided on the approach via the track and bridge. Parked at Balchraggan and spoke to a nice old gentleman who invited us in for a cup of tea before we started. He also had an eight year old tup who thought it was a dog. But I digress. We declined the tea but listened to his suggestions of a possible route. We followed the forestry road heading south and crossed the marked bridge. Shortly thereafter, we turned right across the open field, just passed the wooden house, and entered the wood. We followed an old overgrown track through the trees for a while but when it turned downhill, we decided to head up the ridge on the left. There followed an adventurous route up through a mixture of birch, heather, rocky bluffs and dead bracken. Distance wise it wasn't too far but it seemed to take ages. Deer tracks are OK but they don't always lead to the summit. Eventually we crested the final rise and there it was. And what a view. All the way up Loch Ness and all the way down. Well worth the effort. To descend we cut straight down east heading for the gothic castle at Dirichurachan. We had to bash through some dense forest but eventually popped out on to the marked track. Easy walk back to the car. After refusing another cup of tea, we set off back along the so called public road and reached flat tarmac in no time at all. With Nozzer.

This one wasn't easy. It's located somewhere in the middle of a large expanse of grass with no distinguishing features. The advice to line up the far end of the house roof with the left hand pillar of the bridge is good and gives an accurate bearing on which the Berntsen must lie. The difficulty is in determining how far along this line it is. I used the amount of window showing on previous photographs as a guide but of course that depends on the height above the ground that the photo was taken. Fifeteen minutes of stabbing and I struck gold. Only an inch below the surface and in good condition.

What a debacle. Decided to approach from Broughton in Furnace using public footpaths shown on the map. All was going well as we crossed the golf course near Eccle Riggs but as we started crossing the low field, we discovered it was swimming in water. After I went up to my ankle in the mud for the third time, we gave up on that route. After a consolation ice cream I headed back to the main A595 to try again. Immeditely south of the trig a public footpath sets of from a convienient mini layby. It quickly joins a cement track, goes through someone's garden (a bit disconcerting) and deposits you just below the trig. Simples.

A nice lady from a nearby farm stopped and gave me directions to a nearby cache and I didn't have the heart to tell her that I was looking for something else!
