The berntsen looks well damaged to me. Views would have been better on a day that wasn't marred by storm Dennis.

Parking at the tower, Berntsen is damaged only "bolt" and part of the case remains. directions from previous logs helped.

Was covered over, needed a few measuring and prodding attempts. 7.8m from (unlit) floodlight cover, 5m from kerb, 1.2m from edge of grass currently.

No longer a Bernsten. It's now just a bolt thing as the outer casing has gone. Not the easiest to spot in the mown grass.

Log #221. First Berntsen. Easy to find as still exposed to elements. Not sure what's supposed to be there, but I will defer to more experienced triggers that there are some bits missing. [ExP-173/MiP-8/Rev-2/BM-13/IS-19/Other-6]

Practically all of the Bernsten is missing apart from the inner bolt which is the critical part! On surface and clearly visible in the mown, and very soggy today, grass.

Took a long time to find. The grass is just long enough to hide things and, as the top is missing, the Berntsen is smaller than usual

Easy spot in the wide, well-kept grass verge across from the tower, approx 4.5 - 5m from kerb. Cover missing hence marked as slightly damaged.

My first Berntsen. Very exposed and an easy find.

Good views, easiest Bernsten you will find, seems to have been mowed so is a bit damaged.

Lovely spot on Tower Hill. Berntsen exposed and in good nick. Really fabulous views.

Easily found Bertsen in the cropped grass about 15m away from the odd little tower on top of Tower Hill. Fantastic views with several nearby pillar locations clearly seen. The Berntsen has a few dings but in good nick.

Tower Hill is a good viewpoint. First visited on 22/10/07 but I was unable to locate the Berntsen. In contrast it was clearly exposed today.

Beautiful view over the Firth of Clyde.. the Berntsen is uncovered in fairly cut grass - clearly the bush has retreated. Very good condition given the mobs of Chavs I passed - I had to raise a 999 on leaving the Hill after the broom was set afire... damned depressing for a Local like myself! :( (Revisit 29/03/09 for dodgy GPS ref)

Gourock FBM Aux 1 ..into the setting sun - Beautiful!
Gourock ..revisited 16thMar10 as pete37038 coincidentally - definitely had a clip from the rotavator! :D

No prodder so took some finding, turned out that it was merely covered with rotting vegetation. Good views from the park.

No problem now - vegetation died back and also half exposed. Given its very public position I added turf to recover.

Even with OS sketch - looked like it might be in gorse but with photo may have better luck.
