Log #346. Gone, didn't spend too long looking for it. [ExP-245/MiP-31/Rev-2/BM-23/IS-34/Other-11]

Rough location

Had a half hour poke around comparing old photos and GPS to no avail. I think the drainage ditch builders have had a laugh with us by burying a hundred FBM shaped square blocks under the thick, tall grass. :-/

Bridge of Orchy FBM ..probably destroyed.

WHW#9: One boot having sprung a torrential leak, I'm greatly in favour of any improvements to the WHW. But you would have thought this FBM could have been spared? En route to a long tramp across Rannoch Moor in good vis - enlivened by several downloads of Johnnie Walker's Sounds of the Seventies - the Who, Springsteen and wild highland scenery :) :) !!

I was there about ten years ago and it wasn't hard to find, a short distance off the path. No sign now, and the drainage ditch is exactly where I recall the FBM being. Worth a re-visit in winter just in case it's got buried beneath timber and tussocky grass, but I hold out little hope. Shame really - no reason at all why the drainage ditch couldn't have been a few feet either side of the pillar

Gave it 5 mins but too midgy. On or close to fence. Might be worth shifting the logs. Area changed a lot since I saw the FBM

Searched although guess I knew it was in vain. Have to conclude this FBM hs been lost to us.

Had a look around but had same results as other recent visitors, no longer visible. Southbound sleeper train went past during my fruitless search

Fruitless search for the FBM, but brought back pleasant memories of walking the West Highland Way in June 2008.

No FBM, but nevermind, the sun is shining

Looks to me like this may have been removed when the new drainage channel was dug to counter the soggy patch on the West Highland Way. old photos seem to indicate a similar position to the relatively new drainage ditch. No sign of it now anyway.

Hunted for a good while, feverishly uncovering a great many buried stones and logs, but no trace. I must practically have camped right on top of it walking the WHW 20 years ago...

Had a wander up the WHW path to point indicated in Iainmacs photos,but area very overgrown & after a quick look,gave up as i was heading for a meal & a few pints in the pub so didnt really want to get caked in mud & soaked.

Two GPS receivers both giving readings to <1m....45 minutes of systematic prodding of lumps and bumps in a 5x5m grid. Bugger all FBMs found. If this FBM is still there, it's covered by dumped logs which are now, themselves, covered in vegetation. The OS page lists the coordinates as 0,0,0 which is usually an indicator it's been blatted.

Argyllshire. We had a good look but fear that this was removed during forestry works.

couldn't find it. went back to the hut looked at the internet went back three days later to try again, no luck, grass is low and trees felled and cleared so should be able to find it, gps was 3meter acurate so searched 6 meters all round it.

A little bit off the West Highland Way in long wet grass. I needed help from my GPS for this one.

Stopped on our way back from Fort William to bag the three at Bridge of Orchy. All quite easy to fine.

F.B.M just to the side of the West Highland Way. Wet feet tramping down long grass.

Took a bit of tracking down in the wood (all I had was the grid reference), but once you see it, it is obvious.

Three trigs within a hundred metres of each other. That cannot be too common. An easy find next to the path. Done on the way back from a cracking day climbing on the Buachaille. Took my wee sister up her first rock route. Midges were just starting to appear so didn't linger around the trigs with the well earned pint.

Thousands must pass within a few feet of this one each year; its just by the West Highland Way. Nearly gave up on finding it - thought logging had done it in.

Its on the right
