GR error threw me as convinced myself it was buried! Eventually spotted it as about to give up - shocking. Approx 2m from road edge, partially buried, and approx 10 metres E of the GR. Height tag missing.

Nothing really to add other than to confirm that it is still there and in good condition.

Visiting Kelso for a music festival and could not resist a couple of easy trigs. Complete with band in van this should have been easy, but as other reports, it is buried in undergrowth with only the top showing under the leaves. GPS not much help due to the trees overhead. Found it eventually.

Barbed wire and dense undergrowth made this one difficult but we found it in the end.

GPS signal not good in amongst the trees. It took quite a bit of finding as it was covered in leaves... Traffic moves fast along this road so mind how you go.

Took quite a bit of hunting around in midsummer brambles, overhead cover preventing a decent signal. Sketch spot on though. Parking round corner.

Visited this FBM on a bitterly cold morning and it took us ages to find it hidden amongst the leaves and broken branches. Height tag missing.

Roxburghshire. This took quite some finding, rummaging through piles of dead leaves, but it is still there.

Fortunately had consulted diagram and photograph on OS GPS site before setting off. My GPSr sniffed it out for me. Behind seemingly pointless but easily climbed barbed fence, in front of ruined wall. Was mostly buried, now partially dug out. Surrounding soil and fallen branches removed to photograph. GPS plate on top. GRP.

GPS pointed to roadside - area where trees growing and if the GPS is correct someone has dumped a load of old branches on top of it.
