Marker block and FBM gone, but front (south) wall of buried chamber still there, with small part of east wall projecting towards ditch. Evidently ditch relocation did for the FBM, which was 3.5m back from kerb as per previous log, and 35m west of farm access centreline

Evening visit with trowel - forgot spade. Struggle behind fence to find concrete walls at, as far as I could tell, correct place. Doesn't appear to be for drainage or anything that I can see. Needs an expert to confirm or not that this is part of the chamber

Huge amount of rock removed for widened path. Absolutely no trace.

Gone to footpath improvements - probably unnecessarily.

Destroyed by footpath widening. Visited before going to Wallace Monument and then ferry to Arran.

Visited between Dumyat and the Wallace Monument. A busy main road but at least there was a wide pavement to walk along.

New, wide footpath. FBM gone.

No hawthorn, no FBM. Gone.

ironically there is a cycle path being constructed alongside the road (about four feet wide) with a new deep and wide ditch beyond cutting into foot of hillside. I think these have destroyed the FBM.

Slightly complicated to find due to overhanging tree cover messing with the GPS signals. The prior logs are gold-dust especially "look for the hawthorn"! FBM completely engulfed in ivy, hawthorn and, to my joy, nettles. Stung from the wrist to the elbow trying to get a clear photo!

Straightforward find with the guidance on the 35 paces from the junction - the modern OS plate makes it obvious, even though it is rather hidden in the undergrowth.

Busy road but easily found by pacing 35m from junction. Relatively exposed at this time of year.

This is one of those that looks easy on the map - not so, well not when it very near dark! - located north side of road and about 35 meters west of the road juntion - lost in ivy & hawthorn - appears to be in good condition - some great peaks nearby

Found it quite easily. Just have to dodge the cars. This is my first log of this type of Trig Point.

Nearly blew this one when I remembered the hawthorn reference fairly easy at that point

N side of A91, 3.5m N of kerb, 35m W of track junct. Under hawthorn but just visible from road, vgc, no height tag. A bit of hunting as seems to be the norm with this one.

A bit of a hunt in the vegetation, and the very busy road did not help, but I found it! Usual granite block.

Hard one to locate under the profusion of greenery and barrage of insects. But patience prevailed and I located it not far from the road.
