Parked Manse Rd, by bridge. Thought I might struggle with this one, but gps took me straight to it. Moss covered but looks OK.

Parked at the railway bridge, walk under, crossed the burn and headed up towards the main road. Steep and slippery with leaves, but easy enough to find.

Not so easy to get to this one, started on cycle path then crossed road, across a wee burn and up a very slippy bank to the FBM

Bagged with Charles Everett up under old railway bridge with cut mark then walk up lane to main road and then walk along the pavement. GPS suggests when to climb banking which you need to go up and over and down into the bluebell wood to fine it.

Climbed through the woods from the cyclepath. Easier, but less pleasant, return along A82 and steps into the park. Very mossy but still in place

Easy roadside parking on the local road running parallel to the A82, near to the cycle bridge, then a short, but steep, walk up through the woods. GPS took me directly to it. Located only a few metres from the 82 and would be possible to park roadside there, but traffic quite fast moving so easier down below. Height tag missing, and been covered over with an OS information plate, otherwise in good condition, if a little mossed up.

Approached from the back road below, although much nearer the fast moving A82(T).

Parked in bowling and went under cyclepath on road. Turn off there and climb directly up hill and FBM will be found in slightly flat area below the highest ridge before road. Just to west of the parking 1/2 mile sign by roadside.

Followed Descartes route using the carpark on the main street. Brief jaunt up the leafy hill to a surprisingly Autumnal copse with our wee FBM partially buried in the middle.

Bowling ..surprisingly autumnal.

Good condition FBM sited near the main A82. Approached from the south up the hill from the bridge that carries the #7 cycleway. Coming via the road would probably ensure a quick death. As it's winter, minimal vegetation making this an easy find. Height plaque long gone and OS "do not damage" plaque riveted over the top. Nothing great about the location but Bowling Harbour is worth a pootle about.

On level area 15m back from S kerb. 2nd time lucky: just about dark but GPS took me more or less straight to it. Parked 250 to W. Got the 3 Glasgow FBMs at last, Friday evening after work - the benefits of a northern Summer.

Easy enough to find. If approaching from A82 lay-by to the west, go down first track on right, and up through trees at the bottom, rather than dicing with death along the main road.

Used gps to locate the area, and then not difficult to find at this time of year. Fascinating area so close to the busy A82. Parked in a layby a short distance to the west (when travelling west).

In brambly woodland but still visible. Maybe I was lucky. Wonderful hyacinth bluebells so near the uglyness of the A82.

I would imagine rarely visited - moss covered and in summer will be in a thicket of brambles
