Easy walk in. Now the trees have been clear felled, good views across Urquhart Bay. With Nozzer.

Nice walk in apart from a patch of bog which we managed to negotiate without getting wet feet and soon spotted the pillar at the top of the rise. Lovely views from up here on a clear day and if they felled some more trees to the Loch side you could get an amazing 360 degree panorama from here!

Easy walk along a good forest track, slightly muddy in places but easy enough to bypass.

I parked in a passing place on the road but could have squeezed the car further up the track, just at the start of the wee 1.4km track to the trig. Straightforward track, mainly used by walkers and horses. Get's you to within 50m of the trig, which is surrounded by trees. Extensive felling taking place further back in the forest so hopefully the views may be opened up again one day. Saw some nice dragonflies while walking along the track.

Wee stroll up after finishing a part of a multi-day tour at Drumnadrochit. Dropped off the punters and enjoyed an evening donder up. Back via The Fiddlers for a dram :)

HISTORY: Pillar completed 9th October 1953 costing 19.0s.0d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station NH54/T34 in 1955. Levelled for height in 1956. Last maintained by the OS in June 1976. SITE VISIT: Parked in wide forest entrance, NW side of unclassified road at NH510280. Followed muddy path along NW edge of woods then southwards up heathery ground east of woods. Returned taking a more direct route through the woods which was the easier option. Pillar in mature wood which has protected it from the elements and preserved it in good condition. Spider centre open. Flush bracket faces WNW, ~293. Vented through NE sight hole. Surrounded by spaced conifers, therefore no view. Nice location though.

Bus from Drumnadrochit to Invermoriston then walked back on Great Glen Way with diversion from Woodend to trig. Trig within forested area on mound. Cleared coating of moss from it.

A beautifully serene location when I found it. Lovely warm day and an easy bouncy walk in from the Great Glen Way path, along peaty paths. Fence is falling over so no access problems, easy to spot the highpoint on which its located and trig is easily found amongst the trees. Becoming mostly moss covered, nature is taking over. Missing plug on spider, but otherwise fine condition.

vgc, no cap or plug, summit of larch copse N of track. From SSE, track to houses then path. Strone & Meall Na h'Eilrig could be candidates for Great Glen Project Station A and C?

Inverness-shire. Plug missing. Very mossy trig hidden in the trees. A very secluded location.

Went up the steep side ( by the pony treking establishent). Very steep climb and GPS gave a little bother at the summit due to many trees. Trig covered in moss but in good condition appart from that. Managed to get a little erm lost on the way back. But was all good.

Theres an easy way or theres the SpidyM way!!!

Walk-in today was very wet as erosion on the path has created many large puddles and boggy areas. Trig itself is off the path and hidden in trees on a small crest. GPS found it no bother. A bit moss-covered and the FB had to be cleared before I could photograph it.

In trees - no view. Plenty of snow today but may be best done in frosty/drought conditions.
