Not too much vegetation this time of year. Easy to spot once I'd read the descriptions of previous visitors.

Lovely walk along the river from main road. Met a lady with huge camera trying to photograph a kingfisher.

Should have read BigJ's log more carefully, however GPSr and my senses took me down the steps to a bench above the river where I was shocked at this time of night in the dark to see someone sitting! Lots of memorial flowers and a Samaritans sign, made me pause for thought a little. Once back at bridge level, I headed up the correct steps to the correct lamppost, hopped over the fence and there it was!

A lovely spot above the river. Go to the bottom of the steps, face uphill, go up to lampost and look left. Lots of undergrowth in June.

Beautiful position next to the wonderful gothic arched brig o Balgownie and with my infant school high up on the bank looking down on it.

vgc, charming location in woodland above R Don. From bottom of steps / ramp leading down from main road, FBM is 15m to NW. My usual trick of plotting on 50k map is misleading in this case - looks like they've stretched things a bit. But found easily - with iainmac's pic who needs GPS :-)

Nice view of the river Don from the bridge next to the FBM

The FBM FBM in wooded area close to main road. Good view of the River Don just below the FBM.

PSD diagram and/or GPS essential to locate this baby trig. My third FBM. Just a pity these FBMs don't carry flush brackets. Visited and photographed 11/05/2004, GRP.
