As most finders, parked at Milestone, over fence to FBM. Also acted as a leg stretch on my way to Forres.

Found whilst getting the geocache here. Block in good condition and an easy spot from the roadside.

A quick detour off the A9. Road quiet so put hazards on, jumped the fence and a short hop to the FBM.

Parked next to milestone marker then climbed fence and eventually found the FBM in the vegetation.

An easy find after reading previous logs. I didn't realise there should be a height marker, hopefully I will eventually find one that still has one on it.

Parked at the milestone and jumped over to grab the cache and visit this FBM. Easily spotted.

Spotted quickly by Mr TJR, in good condition not far from milestone just over the fence, ground is a little boggy but not too bad.

Log #73. First log after a two-week hiatus (car troubles and horrendous weather). Peeled off the A9 at the Glentrium/Crubenmore turn-off and followed the road along to the mile marker. Found the benchmark thanks to Rob's directions, only one fence to clamber over. Saw a group of deer running along the hillside under the mast, and my old nemesis, the ScotRail service to Perth. [ExP-69/MiP-0/BM-4]

Found on the way up to Ullapool for a weekend in the West Highlands. The YOSM geocache has visited this FBM so seemed a convenient place to stop off to break the journey up a bit.

Easy to find using the milestone as a starting point. Visible from the road at present.

Grassy clearing in heather, 12m N of milestone, 16m W of road. This has been an odd gap in my FBM list for years, somehow overlooked it

Positioned right next to a Mile Stone for Dalwhinnie. Very reminscent of TP0492 Spean Bridge, certainly in its position from the road. Nice quiet lane so no parking issues. Got a funny look from a passing cyclist, but nothing unusual there.

The milestone is a good marker, but the FBM was only just poking above the heather.

TP0493 location It peeps above the heather in front of the right-hand rock.

Been into Ben Alder this weekend and this was just a few miles north of the car park. Smeggy weather with blanket cloud at Culra but managed to get something done.

Visited on the way to Culbin for the orienteering. Easy find because of the milestone. Short hop over rabbit fence and its on the hillside overlooking the old A9.
