Another warm and sunny day and no problem finding this one not far from the layby. Another YSM in the bag.

The area would be a delightful place to stop and take in the air and scenery if not for the midges.

Visited it twice - in the evening and then the following morning. Could not actually touch it as there is a new verge consisting of rather deep mud.

Dark and wet NYE. Roadside verge a line of deep mud. So looked at it by torchlight.

Lovely spot with frost all round. Was worried that this FBM might have been damaged/moved/lost when the new bit of road was constructed. All intact and real easy to spot from the road.

Our first FBM find. Have since found quite a few on our tour of Scotland. Interesting to read that they have a chamber underneath the actual pillar as well. Nicely located by the Loch. Re-logging as originally found as Maxiboo22 but consolidating all finds under the one account.

Nice easy one by the road. was well covered so tore away some of the heather so at least for a while will be easier to spot. Some nice views of Loch

Reasonably easy to find with the aid of my GPS. A good view of the loch is had from the top of the knoll.
