I spent over half an hour here probing the ground. Using the photograph to provide a line on which to prod, and the amount of window showing to give a distance along the line I will have been very close, but unfortunately didn't strike the right spot. Disappointing.

This one wasn't easy. It's located somewhere in the middle of a large expanse of grass with no distinguishing features. The advice to line up the far end of the house roof with the left hand pillar of the bridge is good and gives an accurate bearing on which the Berntsen must lie. The difficulty is in determining how far along this line it is. I used the amount of window showing on previous photographs as a guide but of course that depends on the height above the ground that the photo was taken. Fifeteen minutes of stabbing and I struck gold. Only an inch below the surface and in good condition.

Had my geocaching event this evening to find the berntsen hidden under the grass. Took 6 of us 30 minutes to find it in the soggy muddy grass armed with a knife, a garden fork, pokey pointy things, a screwdriver and eventually a metal detector. It was found without the detector. Got some funny looks from the local dog walkers. Followed previous advice and lined up the required items but didn't really help. GPS said 4 m out which isn't too bad.

There it is
Aye, that's it

Couldn't find it. Used Rob and CJO's pictures and directions and, armed with the 6" tent peg of divination, still couldn't find the bugger. The ground looks fine so ineptness rather than potential destruction.

In line with front house roof apex and left bridge pier. Also nearby is destroyed buried block "Scorgie NH54 T047. As it has the same station number as this Berntsen, presumably this station replaced it.

Found by lining up iain's photo with the Kessock bridge: pace 7.5 m from centre of grassed-over square then line up left hand tower of main span with far end of ridge of nearest house whose ridge is pointing towards you. Under an inch of turf, which I left in place. Rainy evening view.

Berntsen outed
Berntsen in-line ... with LH tower of bridge and far end of ridgeline of nearest house - and 7.5m from centre of grassed-over square

Lined up Iainmac's photo, prodded but found nothing. Good views to the Kessock Bridge now that the mist has lifted

Looked all over for this. Managed to go up the path and it was pretty clear howerver as Bergfuehrer mentioned the rectangular concrete part has gone, at least i couldn't find it anywhere. unless they put some new turf over the top of it? Even the GPS was all over the place

Inverness-shire. We went armed with iainmac's photos and spent a long while prodding and doing minor excavations, but all to no avail. The tarmac path and rectangle are now grassed over and the whole area may even have been re-turfed.
