Log #361. Spotted at last minute, so threw the car on the verge and ran back along the road to bag the FBM. Looks to be in good condition and lovely spot below Sgurr an Fhuarail. [ExP-250/MiP-32/Rev-2/BM-25/IS-34/Other-18]

Lovely position in Glen Shiel with views towards the nearby peaks. If the road is busy, there's parking about 100 yards west.

5.5m S side road, only tricky bit was parking but road not busy so managed to pull off onto grass verge right by the beastie. Good, other than height tag missing.

Must have passed this way 100s of times since I first did in 1968, and have never noticed this trig, until I started geocaching.

Parked in layby and walked back to this. Quite a breezy spot.

Given this one a low(ish) score of 4/10, as I'd normally rather be up on the hills than faffing about on the roadside. That said, it was rather tiddling down this particular Sunday morning, so hillwalking wasn't a great attraction.

Was staying at the Cluanie Inn,so after a morning walk up Ciste Dhubh i wandered along the A87 to this FBM which is roughly a mile down the road towards Shiel Bridge. An excellent location with a great backdrop but wouldn't recommend walking on the road,it's pretty scary!

Can be seen from road when travelling west. As it was quiet was able to pull over onto grass by FBM. Off road parking on north side of A87 about 200 metres further west.

Can't believe how many 5's in the logs below!! What an awesome place. You dont get backdrops like that with pillars :) Easy one to find, although the snow pole mentioned in one log below has now gone. Opposite a small fenced enclosure if that helps.

What a backdrop!

Nice easy road side job with some stunning scenes about. Just past the Cluanie Inn on the road to Skye with views to the South Shiel Ridge. 26 degrees up there today, hot one and windy into the bargin so no midges! Perfect.
