Gps points to obvious small rock slab just E of the southernmost outcrop. No trace of bolt or remains or scar.p

Wingletang Down is scattered with very fine granite outcrops. Boy’s Rock is not the biggest outcrop, but it earns a name on the Isles of Scilly 1:15,000 map published by Friendly Guides (the best walking map of Scilly). I looked for the bolt on a day trip to St Agnes, but I too couldn’t find any sign of it, so I’ve no reason to doubt the OS record that it was destroyed. There are two adjacent boulders – I’m not sure which is Boy’s Rock, or whether both collectively make up Boy’s Rock.

OS records this bolt destroyed July 1960. There are some interesting weather shaped granite blocks at this location; searched most if not all of them but no sign of a bolt.

I could find no sign of the Bolt - therefore I will go with the OS Destroyed
