Small grass covered outcrop. Managed to pull away some turf but no tools and proved insufficient to locate the bolt. This one retains its secrets - for the time being!

Stones and boulders under turf. I exposed a few but nothing bolt worthy and no bolt found. Seems a common arrangement in this area, puzzles as to what was the original installation

Second stop of five islands in one day. A group of island and trig baggers were landed on a rough slipway on the south side of the island. From there it was an arduous walk to the summit through brush, bracken and boggy bits. Several of us searched for the bolt in the rocks at the summit but sadly there was no sign.

Seven people here and not one could find the bolt. Depressing.

Thorough search of multiple rocks near summit yielded no results despite presence of multiple baggers.

After much searching around the summit, just couldn't see anything bolt-like at all. If it exists, it's under scrubby grass or moss....
