Hiding under Macdonald's cup. Thanks to those that originally tracked it down and left directions.

Granite block with 2" bolt which has a surveyor's arrow and OS plaque. Was buried 5cm deep - left open after a spruce up.

Thanks peregrinus for brilliant directions! I had no measuring or digging tools but still managed to locate it.

OS sketch seems to have gone. Used photos. 3m from metal cover, 3m from end of white line, 2m from rowan tree, under turf. Dusk by the time I found it.

Hard to find because of lots of stones giving false hope but in the end it was unearthed

No height tag but a whopping arrow on the *bolt-head* ..buried enough for lazy OS to drill the 1999 plaque on its top rather than dig it out and pop on the side as usual ...at a bit of an odd angle too - no spirit level but an obliging red berry rolled South to North proving the top is pretty tilted.

Linlithgow ..buried with tilted top.

Buried FBM. Went straight to it via the sketch and tape. Although the measurement from the nearby fence post appears 20cm too far....I digress. Parking right beside it. Currently uncovered in terms of excavated mud, but slightly grassed over. Nice big bolt with broad arrow on it. Not the usual FBM top.

This FBM was so deeply buried that the top of it was flush with the ground. Height tag was missing.

West Lothian. We had to uncover this. I wonder how much of a pillar lies beneath?

Bit of a pig, even with the sketch. Under 2 inches of turf.

Unusually this was more difficult to find than the nearby Auxiliary. Very close to Iainmac's stones which are exposed. Covered up again afterwards.

Have tried to find this a few times but on this trip went armed with location drawing from FBM List Site. Still took a bit of digging but found in the end.

Had a good poke about, but no luck. It's not a large area - I was probably standing on top of it. Return visit with tape measure required.

Linlithgow It's here, somewhere.

A nasty one. Sketch needed and this road is getting busier. Time to retreat for xome lunch me thinks.

Still buried, but the dead grass was a givaway.

At last. OS sketch (thanks to GRP) and tape measure eventually uncovered this one. And yet I still nearly gave up searching. N.B. I re-covered it roughly so OS sketch or these photos still likely to be needed.

used OS sketch and yet I'm still not sure if I've found it or not. 2 stones found exactly where sketch predicted (no tape measure tho) but neither has plaque on it nor resembles any other fbm I have visited. It seems I am destined to visit this yet again with tape measure and shovel/trowel.

I think its got to be gone. Did a good search but still no sign. Only possibility now seems to be part of a stone wall has fallen on it.
