Both Nozzer and I missed seeing Graemeís initial log for this lost pillar. If we had, we'd have been up there like a rat up a drainpipe. Good find Graeme. Parked on the minor road to the NW and followed the marked track, which is mainly tarred, to the obvious switchback before Bunloit Farm. From here, a quad track goes north straight to the pillar. What a great view of Loch Ness. No sign of the monster however, which is a shame, as itís the start of the tourist season. Enjoyed finding Rob's paperwork which was left intact. With Nozzer.

From NNW, best via forest to minimise gorse. Great find GRP thanks to Ian P research

Well done to Graeme! With Gerry. Never thought we'd visit one of the 'missing' Great Glen trigs and what a view it has. My only BBRW pillar.....None of the usual Great Glen trig markings on the spider either?

I doubted that this trig actually existed as I had done a bit of research in the files at the national archives. I was delighted when someone recently found this missing trig again. Picked up Mrs TJR and drove to the track in the A82 signposted for Maggie's Cottage. Drove up the track and parked in the parking area before the private property signs. Then walked a further 50 m up the track, then hoofed it up the rough terrain. Stumbled upon the overgrown track going uphill and followed this and over a fence. Then we followed another fence going away from the direction of the trig and there was a suitable corner spot with the fence down. We then followed deer tracks all the way to a fence and could clearly see the trig in the open area. Stunning views of Loch Ness on a gorgeous day. Kudos to Graeme for rediscovering this missing trig.

Parked in northbound layby opposite monument at NH_51716_26849. There is also a southbound layby at NH_50896_25211. Then walk alongside the A82 to the track entrance. The verges are good for walking. The track starts from NH_51267_26103. The initial ascent is to the north but this quickly hairpins round to the southwest. At around NH_50994_25926 there is a second sign to Maggie's Cottage and another sign that is less welcoming. To avoid unwanted attention from the cottage, I left the track around NH_50917_25788 and scrambled straight up the bank to an unmapped overgrown path which ascends away from the direction of the trig. Followed that path to gain some height then turned towards trig and emerged from the woods at NH_50816_25785. The trig is visible from there and it is just a short walk across grass.

I know, it doesn't exist, but it's a blue dot in the middle of Loch Ness which we drove past, so I'm just turning it red, and it counts as a trig bagged!

(non visit log): OS document refers to "the quadrilateral ABCD near Urquhart Bay" ... "was not observed in 1972 as building of one of the four pillars was incomplete because of difficulty in obtaining permission for access." 'Crustal movement studies: Great Glen Project, Scotland Jun 72 - Jul 79' apparently a key document
