Easy to find FBM well appreciated this afternoon. Cruach Tairbeirt climbed between trains whilst slowly making my way up to Oban and then the ferry to Barra.

Diverted slightly during a caching trip to Scotland. The FBM is located just inside a pleasant wooded area and easy to find.

Parked on the pavement beside the gate, squelched through the mud to reach the gate, then spotted the FBM just to the left.

Not too many problems finding it, parked close by. Was planning on hunting this a while ago when trying out Waymarking.com for the first time (..before discovering trigpointing !)

From the Tarbet end towards Arrochar. Beyond the railway bridge follow the road to the 'Fish & Chips' sign on the left of the road. From this point the FBM is on the other side of the road (the footpath side) a further (approx) 10 yards at the old (now open) gateway. It's behind the left hand gate post, the approach to which (Feb 2013) is a sea of mush.

Parked on pavement on north side of road about 100m WSW of railway bridge. Walked about 75m back down pavement and carefully round the mud through an open gateway on the north side of the road to find the FBM just to the left. Difficult to get GPS signal in the trees so I cannot offer a position. FBM is covered in moss and has no height tag, just a bolt with ‘OSBM’ on it.

Moss covered. GPSr for height = 60m. In trees reception was poor. More blurb t/f.

Easy enough to find in a small enclosure off the north side of the road. See previous photos for a clue. Completely covered in moss except for the OS plate and the OSBM dome on top. Oh, and 200th trig!

Dunbartonshire. This is a different design to the usual FBM and there is no place for a height tag.

Cutest wee FBM yet - covered in moss with a strange OSBM skullcap and no height tag.. bagged a benchmark on the nearby railbridge too. :-)

Arrochar ..mossy and OSBM skullcap.

My first sober New Year since a kid :-) Went to Beinn an Lochain to enjoy the ice this cold burst has given us. Routes very thin but the turf was absolutely bomber. FBM handily passed on the way to parking at Rest & Be Thankful.

Bit of a dank spot. Covered in moss. Easy to find thanks to the photos, and conveniently on my route back from the "Tayness" trig to the station.

Just climbed the Cobbler so ticked of this FB on our way home. Very busy road so parked at the station and walked back. Easy to find just look for entrance into the old quarry. There is a yellow fire hydrant cover on the pavement at the opening.
