Getting quite dark now so had to get the torch out for the hop into the trees. Managed to pick up the path once through the initial gorse and could quickly spot the pillar in the gloom. This pillar is pretty well hidden from the road and you would never know it's here passing by!

I'll be honest with you, I don't really remember visiting this trig dispite photographic evidence.

On a cycle ride from Rosemarkie to Cromarty. Cycled past a few times before realising it was well buried in among the trees. A cache as well.

Log #11. Fairly easy to find thanks to Mr. Petzl and his headtorches. I took the main road back from Cromarty, and had to cut across the access road through the forest to double back. Cap is missing, and it has been filled with something. [ExP-11/MiP-0/BM-0]

Just back logging my trig visits. Nice wee walk along the track in the forest and then you spot the trig, which is well hidden behind gorse from the road. No views. Geocache here.

A relatively straight forward visit. Parked on the road and pushed my way through the woodland and gorse to get to the pillar. It is in good condition and has a replacement composite type plug. Nothing really to commend the location being tree enclosed but is in very pleasant area generally.

This would have been the 5th trig on our Black Isle mini-tour whilst en-route from Tongue to Avimore - if we had been able to find it. Hunted high and low for this one but just couldn't locate it, we obviously didn't push into the wood far enough but the undergrowth was quite dense and was expecting it to be roadside. Disappointed as unlikely we'll re-visit the area to hunt again. ***Re-viisted 31 Mar 2018. Dirty coat of white paint. Pillar has lost its top cap, asphalt plug replacement. With Carole Engel.

Parked on grass verge, SE side of road at NH752616. Secondary station pillar in good condition. Completed 17th July 1955 costing 28.3s.2d. In coniferous woods, NW side of road, hidden by wall of gorse. Spider centre plugged with tar. Flush bracket faces 136 (SE). Vented through SW sight hole. In woods therefore no view.

Vgc, concrete plug. As others have said there is a gorse barrier between the trig and the road. Access is easier if you leave the road to the east, and walk through the wood.

As has been said already, the trig's off the road but protected by a barrier of gorse. Not the most attractive site in the world.

In amongst the trees and hard to spot. A barrier of gorse has to be breached to find it. Meanwhile back up at the highest point there is an unfortified reservoir and a bumper crop of raspberries.

Third time lucky. First time drove by expecting to see it from road, second time got out of car (!) and looked in trees to south of road but thanks to gps (third visit) revealed to be to north of road behind gorse and not at highest point.
