Sandy hillock, grazed by sheep and rabbits. GPS put the TP away from the high point of the small hillock, so unsure if the there's been sand dumped or removed from the location. No sign on the surface, but didn't try digging for it.

I wasn't hanging around for a good GPS fix, bit it seemed to be the centre of the road, in line with the Dornoch Firth sign. presumably buried/ destroyed when the bridge was built.

I can't understand why this miniature mountain hasn't been logged before. Parked at NH 758 945 and followed the track up to the gate just beyond the ford NH 744 958. Then heading round and up the Northern side of the hill. Fine panoramic views ?? TP easily found on exposed rock at the summit. small Cairn close by.

The difference between the coordinates of this and the monument is 0.016 minutes East. Looking at the scales on the local map, 1min is almost 1Km. So I make this ~16m from the centre of the monument on a bearing of 90 degrees, which is where the dogs were. Need a longer proding stick
